Seahawks vs. Packers: Highlights, game tracker and more

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

That staunch defensive effort was just enough for the Packers, who got 311 passing yards and one touchdown from Rodgers and 54 rushing yards and one touchdown from running back Ty Montgomery.

If this game truly was a matchup of two of the leading Super Bowl contenders in the NFC, then what we learned most is that the Seahawks have some serious work to do if they want to actually fulfill those expectations. Green Bay allowed 30 or more points in five of its regular-season setbacks past year and recently added former Pro-Bowl linebacker Ahmad Brooks to a mix that includes outside linebacker Clay Matthews (career-low five sacks) and safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (five interceptions).

Green Bay caught a big break when Rodgers had an interception returned for a touchdown called back in the first quarter thanks to a pair of penalties.

Aaron Rodgers has a new weapon in Martellus Bennett.

After another Seattle punt, Green Bay managed to take five minutes off the clock and kicker Mason Crosby capped it off with a field goal, giving the Packers a 17-6 lead, with just over eight minutes to go in the game. Still, the Green Bay Packers' defense is solid as compared to the most of the rosters int he league to date. In his first NFL start, against one of the league's top defenses, Murphy wasn't ideal but certainly held his own.

Next week, Seattle hosts San Francisco (0-1) while Green Bay has an NFC Championship Game rematch at Atlanta (1-0). The over/under total for the contest is listed at 51.5 points.

The boom of the crane snapped off and is now still connected to the tower, but is hanging off the side of the building. Those counterweights could pose a grave threat if any of the cranes are unable to withstand wind and flying debris.

Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels' strip sack of Wilson deep in Seattle territory in the third quarter set up a Green Bay touchdown on the next play, a decisive blow in the Seahawks' 17-9 loss on Sunday. With various pass rushers including Michael Bennett, Rodgers could potentially be sacked multiple times and the Seahawks could potentially dominate the battle at the line of scrimmage.

2-rd pick from UW many wanted Seattle to draft is back from an August groin injury.

The Seahawks offensive line is one the lowest-paid and least experienced units in the NFL. Picking against them as an underdog anytime this year will be a risky proposition. "Going forward I think we'll show you what we can do". "It just so happens that I'm on a different team playing against where I came from". The Seahawks had a 3-0 lead at half-time, but were again unable to generate much offence in the second half as the offensive line struggled to create a push. Everyone knows how their last meeting ended.

"Run The Table" became a kind of legendary catch phrase in Green Bay in 2016.

Game: Seattle Seahawks vs.

Time-management decisions by both coaches were huge factors. After this team went through the thrashing it took throughout last season, it was expected that Wilson and company would have no issues moving the ball down the field.
