What happened? Packers 7, Seahawks 3. The Packers got the ball first and moved to the Green Bay 41 before
Player of the quarter: Harvin. Four touches – three receptions, one run – for 30 yards. In a quarter where no one stood out, Harvin gets the nod.
Play of the quarter: The fumbled punt. Rather than fair catch the punt, Thomas went for it, only to have Sherman push House into him before he could gain control of the ball. It gave the Packers field position and, six plays later, cost the Seahawks the lead.
Numbers to note: 80, 96 and 71. Those are the retired jersey numbers of Steve Largent, Cortez Kennedy and Walter Jones, the Hall of Fame trio that raised the 12th Man flag above the south end prior to kickoff.
What happened? Seahawks 17, Packers 10. The Seahawks regained the lead on Russell Wilson’s 33-yard TD pass to
Player of the quarter: Lynch. Preseason? Who needs it? Not Lynch. After carrying three times in the preseason, Lynch had four carries for 39 yards in the quarter, and his 21-yard run set up his first TD run of the season. For the half, Lynch had seven carries for 59 yards, an 8.4-yard average.
Play of the quarter: The big catch by “The Big Fundamental.” That’s Miller, as his teammates call him. Why? His latest one-hander against tight coverage from Clay Matthews was a great example. It came on the first play of the six-play, 70-yard drive that ended with Lynch TD run.
Number to note: 3. That’s Wilson’s uniform number and he was 5 of 8 for 92 yards and a TD in the second quarter and 10 of 14 for 121 yards and a 121.4 passer rating in the half.
What happened? Seahawks 22, Packers 10. The Seahawks pushed their lead to 10 points on a 20-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka with 10:28 left in the quarter. The Seahawks got the ball at the Packers’ 8 after
Player of the quarter: Maxwell. A pick to setup a field goal. A breakup at the goal line. It doesn’t get a whole lot better than that.
Play of the quarter: Bennett’s fumble-forcing sack for the safety. The Seahawks had been pressuring Rodgers all evening, but finally got something to show for it. The safety led to Lynch’s 3-yard TD run on the first play of the fourth quarter.
Number to note: Two. Sacks in the quarter by the Seahawks, and then came from Bennett and Cliff Avril, who led the team in sack last season.
What happened?Seahawks 36, Packers 16. On the first play of the quarter, Marshawn Lynch scored his second rushing touchdown, this one a 3-yarder to cap a nine-play, 53-yard drive that began in the third quarter. Russell Wilson was 3 of 4 for 28 yards and ran once for 13 yards. But the Packers then drove 82 yards in 10 plays to Aaron Rodgers’ 3-yard TD pass to Randall Cobb with 9:31 left. Rodgers was 6 of 6 for 66 yards. But his pass on the two-point PAT was incomplete. The Seahawks then drove 80 yards in 13 plays to Wilson’s 14-yard TD pass to
Player of the quarter:Lynch. He surpassed 100 yards on his first carry of the Seahawks’ first full series, scored his second TD run on the first play of the quarter and was a major contributor to the final TD drive.
Play of the quarter:The fourth-down TD pass, of course. With the Packers stacking their defense, Wilson rolled out and lofted a pass into the flat to Coleman, who did the rest.
Numbers to note: 1 and 0. As in, that’s one. What’s next? A long week to prepare for next Sunday’s game against the Chargers in San Diego. And as in 0, the number of times Rodgers threw at All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman.
