By The Numbers: Seahawks At Packers

A look at 10 numbers that stood out from the Seahawks' regular season loss in Green Bay.

The Seattle Seahawks started off the 2017 season 0-1 after losing to the Green Bay Packers, 17-9, at Lambeau Field on Sunday. Here are 10 numbers that stood out from the Week 1 contest: 

Sunday was the second time in Aaron Rodgers' career as Packers quarterback his team was held scoreless in the first half at Lambeau Field. The only other time this occurred was in 2010 against the Chicago Bears. 

A lot of attention has been given to the Seahawks defensive line after they added Sheldon Richardson and they surely lived up to the hype against Green Bay. The Seahawks sacked Rodgers four times and hit him eight times in the game. The pass-rush was consistent all game. 

The Seahawks have dropped eight-straight regular season meetings to the Packers at Lambeau Field dating back to 1999. 

10 

Getting an increased workload at right cornerback due to Jeremy Lane's ejection in the first quarter, rookie Shaquill Griffin recorded 10 tackles against the Packers in his first regular season contest, second-most on the team behind Earl Thomas.

12 

The Seahawks recorded 12 first downs against the Packers, their fewest since recording 11 at Arizona last season. 

26 

The Packers ran 26 more plays on offense than the Seahawks did. 

39:13 

One of the keys to beat a team led by Rodgers is controlling the ball and keeping him off the field. The Packers won the time of possession battle, 39:13 to 20:47. 

53

Seahawks rookie running back Chris Carson was on the field for 53 percent of the offensive snaps against the Packers, the most among his teammates at the position. Carson finished the game with 39 yards rushing on six carries and hauled in one pass for 10 yards. 

91

Cornerback Richard Sherman started his 91st consecutive game, the fourth-longest active streak among cornerbacks.

251 

With his interception in the first quarter, Seahawks rookie defensive lineman Nazair Jones snapped Rodgers' streak of consecutive passing attempts without a pick at 251. That streak was the second longest in Packers franchise history behind Bart Starr's mark of 294 in 1964-65.
