Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane was controversially tossed during an interception return for touchdown, a play which was called back due to two penalties. Tackle Brian Bulaga is uncertain to play, and with the running game lacking, the newly-minted "Death Row" defensive line will have its opportunities.
"He simply makes that thing go, so keeping him in the pocket has been instrumental as far as forcing his arm to beat us because when he escapes the pocket, much like Aaron, that's when he's most risky, when those receivers become uncovered", Matthews said.
A 12-play, 53-yard drive that took up more than five minutes ended with Mason Crosby's 40-yard field goal with 8 minutes, 1 second left to make it a two-score game. "Because I don't", defensive end Cliff Avril said.
"We have the flag so people can find us", Boyden said. Seattle is also just 2-6-2 ATS in this series and 0-4-1 ATS at Lambeau.
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. They went three-and-out and punted. Most importantly, his game could mean a lot down the road for home field advantage in the playoffs. "We really don't care what people say".
Carson, a seventh-round pick and the star of the preseason, carried the ball only six times for 39 yards in Sunday's 17-9 loss, but he looked like Seattle's best option. RB Eddie Lacy makes Seattle debut after spending first four seasons with Packers, including two 1,000-yard campaigns. We have to do way better and we're better than that. "And we will be". The 66-yard touchdown pass that Packers receiver Davante Adams had previous year against Seattle might not have occurred if Thomas was on the field. "It was hard, but I thought he battled throughout", Carroll said. "We look forward to going in and playing against Atlanta".
As the Seahawks were heading toward the end zone, Davante Adams and Lane got tangled up, and the referees believed the latter threw a punch, although replay showed otherwise.
Lane wasn't in the locker room later to talk about his penalty.
"If they try to sub, it's one word and we all line up and we know what to do", Nelson said. "Me, personally, I don't plan on letting him get anything going on this field here, but he's definitely going to have a chip on his shoulder, and he's definitely got a point to prove coming in here".
The Packers' defense could not have started 2017 any better.
Lambda Field should be familiar for most of the other Seahawks.
When discussing the Packers, one has to start by mentioning the connection between quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his receivers.
Seattle, meanwhile, couldn't similarly up their offensive production in the second half, having to settle for just two further field goals as they slipped to defeat.
