Sometimes an opponent simply has your number. The first play was one of those ridiculous bubble screens Bevell loves so much; it went for no gain. Micah Hyde recovered for Green Bay. The Green Bay Packers quarterback was singing a different tune Sunday night.
It wasn’t until 1997 when Dallas, by then a dying dynasty, finally came to Lambeau Field.
The Packers drove 80 yards for a touchdown to open the game.
Above are the snap counts for the Seattle Seahawks for the game against the Packers, as compiled by Pro Football Focus.
Either way, it’s nearlyrefreshing to see two of the game’s best players be so willing to send shots the other’s way.
With Rodgers at quarterback, the Packers offense has been special for the past several years.
Winless after two weeks, the 0-2 Seahawks rest firmly behind the eight ball.
As a matter of fact, yes.
September 20 – After win over Seahawks, Aaron Rodgers says God is finally on the Packers’ side: “And then getting help from God”.
In moving to 2-0 for the first time since 2011, the Packers put to rest the notion that the two-time defending NFC champions have their number.
Safety Morgan Burnett (calf) and defensive end Datone Jones (suspension) also were back in the lineup for the Packers after missing the Week 1 victory over the Chicago Bears. Since the National Football League play-offs expanded to their current format in 1990, 24 teams have started 0-2 and still made the post-season. Eddie Lacy was lost early in the game and didn’t return. Somewhere in there, the officials said that they declared that it was down, that they had the ball. “We’re going to enjoy it for a couple days and get ready to move on to Kansas City”, Lang said.
“Yeah, it was a heartbreaker”, Wilson said of the fourth quarter.
– Defensively, Marcus Burley was in for all but two plays, meaning the Seahawks were in nickel for all but two plays.
“It feels good“, guard T.J. Lang said. “What has made us good in the past is being able to come out of that adversity better than we were before”, Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. It’s one of those things that it’s not about me. Seattle plays with incredible intensity and physicality.
Green Bay rode an opening surge of energy to a quick 10-0 lead en route to a 13-3 lead at halftime. They out-gained the Seahawks, 200-104, and held Marshawn Lynch to 29 yards on 11 carries. This season sure would go a lot smoother if they could just cut down on a fewmistakes.
Therefore, unless Rodgers has had a change of heart and now speaks to higher beings in the locker room, it’s pretty clear the 2014 MVP is having a bit of fun with an outspoken Wilson.
Who knows, but Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is well known for saying he thinks God is a Seahawks fan. “He cares about the people involved, but I don’t think he’s a big football fan”.
