Rodgers, Packers down Seahawks in epic Week 1 defensive battle

Carroll Rawls is questionable for Seahawks’ season opener

Carroll Rawls is questionable for Seahawks’ season opener

Wilson was picked off a career-worst five times when the Seahawks were routed 38-10 at Lambeau Field in December.

Prior to signing with Seattle in the offseason, Lacy played four seasons with the Packers. "We're going to have to get after him but at the same time be smart about our rush lanes and not let him tuck the ball and run or let his receivers become uncovered".

Though, Lacy appears to be 100 percent and ready to go. Playing hard football, you know, that's what it comes down to.

TV: KCPQ Channel 13 Radio: 710-AM, 97.3-FM. The Green Bay secondary maintained coverage when Wilson scrambled around.

With the Seahawks starting at their 11 with 55 seconds left in the second quarter, McCarthy burned his last two timeouts, thinking he had a chance to get one last possession. The Falcons crushed Green Bay 44-21 in the NFC Championship Game in January. The Seahawks are chasing after their first victory in Green Bay since 1999. Their last win there was on November 1, 1999. Again, replays showed Avril lightly pushing Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as he chased Jones.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he was "surprised" by the poor performance of his offensive line Sunday. The numbers when he's there and when he's not are staggering.

If you like defense, then the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers matchup Sunday afternoon was the game of the week for you. He's that big a factor all over the field. If Rodgers doesn't have to win shootouts every week-if Green Bay can improve upon its 22nd-ranked defense from last season-the Packers will be more than just the favorites in the NFC North, or even one of the leading contenders in the NFC.

Those two big plays accounted for 63.6 percent of Seattle's 99 yards. Time for the Seahawks to see how much of a coup that one-year, prove-it contract they gave their 250-pound masher back may be. Since Lane was ejected, Shaquill Griffin took his position and was not effective. "It's just I've got to get off the field".

The Seahawks can rebound from this, right? Then again, the way the Seahawks talk about Griffin's beyond-his-years poise, they say he doesn't need much help. He ranks second in National Football League history in passer rating. Tackle Brian Bulaga is uncertain to play, and with the running game lacking, the newly-minted "Death Row" defensive line will have its opportunities. This is the toughest opening task on the road there is in the NFL. Weren't they great? The Seahawks did well against them.

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. Both win games through the air and will certainly look to do so on Sunday. They're loaded with talent on that side of the ball, whether it's quarterback Aaron Rodgers or perhaps the deepest receiving corps in the NFL. His reaction: "I'm excited...it's a situation that I want to be in".

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