NFL Packers Set Defensive Tone Against Seahawks

NFL Packers Set Defensive Tone Against Seahawks

His passer rating of 69.7 was about 30 points worse than his career mark.

Early in the game, defensive tackle Nazair Jones stepped in front of a pass, secured it and ran it back to the end zone before his touchdown was called back.

In the NFC Championship Game after the 2014 season, which Seattle won 28-22 at home in overtime, Wilson threw one touchdown pass and four interceptions.

On third and goal from the 3 in the third quarter with the Seahawks down 7-3, Wilson scrambled away from more pressure and threw for the 6-foot-7 Graham in the back right of the end zone.

Perhaps the biggest play of the game came in the third quarter. "That's really what it was tonight, if you really think about it".

The NFL football world knows that the Seattle #Seahawks have a great defense - as in one of the best in the entire league. They had the one offsides touchdown and they got that fumble and they scored on the next play. The crowd will surely be in a frenzy in Atlanta when the Falcons play their first regular season game in their new home, Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Two of those passes, including the last one, resulted in big first downs.

The Packers were able to get to Wilson early and often. However, Wilson's pass - unloaded just before he was drilled by Daniels - went over Lockett's head. The receiver caught the ball inside the 5-yard line but was pushed out of bounds by safeties Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix before he could get two feet down. As such, the Packers' two touchdowns and a late field goal were more than enough to push them past.

The Packers had a almost 2-to-1 advantage in time of possession (39:13 to 20:47) as they closed out the victory in the final quarter.

The Seattle Seahawks went 4-0 in the preseason, the third time under Pete Carroll the club has gone undefeated in summer play. He did that tonight. We had a chance to to do it at the end but couldn't get off the field. Seattle starting RB Thomas Rawls was inactive, so former Packer RB Eddie Lacy got the start.

Green Bay tacked on Mason Crosby's 40-yard field goal before Wilson quickly drove the Seahawks into scoring position.

Dominant Defense Leads #3 Clemson To 14-6 Win Over #13 Auburn
Clemson had a pair of defensive pass interference calls in the first quarter that helped Auburn's offense stay on the field. Lawrence passed for 281 yards and two touchdowns last night in a 38-5 win over Westlake as Cartersville improved to 4-0.

"It is a long season", Lacy said. "When you see guys flying around, making plays, I mean, that's encouraging".

The Packers made the most of their opportunity to make life miserable for Wilson.

Nice day for Walsh: Seahawks fans may remember Blair Walsh during his time in Minnesota, when he missed a last-second chip shot that would have eliminated the Seahawks from the 2015 NFC playoffs.

The Green Bay Packers are indisputably an offense-first football team.

"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 unsafe, when those receivers become uncovered", Matthews said.
