Takeaways from the Seahawks loss to Green Bay

Takeaways from the Seahawks loss to Green Bay

Seattle had trouble getting Green Bay's offense off the field or finishing its own drives, and the result was a 17-9 loss on the road to the Packers.

Randall Cobb was the favorite target with 9 catches for 85 yards, a lot of them quick strikes from the slot or crossing the middle.

For Seattle, Wilson finished 14 of 27 for 158 yards and a rating of 69.7.

"That big fumble, that fumble was really good", Packers tight end Martellus Bennett said.

Ty Montgomery rushed for 54 yards and a touchdown on offense for the Packers, but they couldn't have done it without a staunch effort from their defense.

The Packers have won three straight against Seattle and have won eight straight against the Seahawks at Lambeau Field.

The cranes could not be removed in time before the storm hit the area. "Falling cranes kill people", the county said in its suit. The Miami city manager, Daniel Alfonso, did not respond to an email on Sunday , and no one answered the phone at his office.

In the other Sunday evening games in the National Football League, the Los Angeles Rams secured a huge 46-9 home win over the Indianapolis Colts, while the Carolina Panthers bettered the San Francisco 49ers 32-3 along the Californian coast.

The first half almost ended scoreless after the Seahawks failed to get their offense up and going and their defense off the field.

Nick Perry: Perry was equally as dominant as Daniels. Wilson was sacked three times, and was under pressure on many other plays. Blair Walsh's 21-yard field goal cut the margin to 7-6. Much of the blame rests squarely upon the offensive line. Lockett beat his man and got free for what could have been a 57-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Safeties Kentrell Brice, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, and Morgan Burnett all had good games for the Packers. The forced fumble Daniels provided in the third quarter sparked the Packers offense with a touchdown the next play.

But it was the Seahawks who were backed up late in the half with:55 remaining when Mike McCarthy called back to back timeouts hoping to get the ball back. Even if the Seahawks hadn't converted a third-and-3, the clock would have run out. Head coach Pete Carroll said in March that he expected Joeckel to play left tackle, but Joeckel landed at the top of the depth chart for the left guard position. After a Seattle field goal, Aaron Rodgers found Jordy Nelson for another score, putting the Packers up 14-6. Wilson then found a huge void in the middle of the field and ran for 29 yards. The Hawks failed to get into the end zone, though, after netting a first-and-goal from the 3, coming up with a run for no gain and two incomplete passes. Also behind the play, Davante Adams and Jeremy Lane got into it and Lane was ejected from the game for apparently throwing a punch.

The tussle occurred around the Packers 30 during a play in which Nazair Jones intercepted Rodgers at 9:26 of the first quarter. The Seahawks had three straight three and out series and the Packers dangerously gave the ball away that looked like only the second pick six of Aaron Rodgers' career. Just beat the guy in front of you, whether you are an o-lineman, d-lineman receiver or defensive back, quarterback, linebacker, just beat the guy in front of you.
