His passer rating of 69.7 was about 30 points worse than his career mark.
Take advantage of his motivation: Of all the games the Seahawks should try to capitalize on the addition of Eddie Lacy this offseason, it's this one. The interception Jones made against Rodgers ended a Rodgers streak of 252 consecutive pass attempts without a pick.
In December on the same field, Wilson threw five interceptions - three of which deflected off the hands of receivers - in a 38-10 loss.
When defensive lineman Mike Daniels barreled though the Seahawks' interior in the third quarter, his strip sack of Wilson on the six-yard line set up a short touchdown run for Ty Montgomery, giving the Packers a 7-3 edge. We know what kind of player he is, so he's had enough glimpses of the look in preseason that you can see him get to rumbling with the football. They had the one offsides touchdown and they got that fumble and they scored on the next play. "I'm disappointed that play would have such magnitude on the game".
But three consecutive plays netted no yards, including a third-down pass under pressure to Jimmy Graham in which two Green Bay defenders appeared to make significant contact with Graham. However, Wilson's pass - unloaded just before he was drilled by Daniels - went over Lockett's head. Playing behind that line is quarterback Russell Wilson, who, like Thomas, is recovered from his injuries and expects big things from 2017. 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.
Two more sustained drives in the fourth quarter, one for a field goal and a final one to kill the final 6:17 on the clock, sealed the victory.More news: Mourinho plays down Champions League hopes
"A lot of teams run that West Coast, pro-style offense I've been exposed to the last two years", McCaffrey said.
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. He did that tonight. "You've got to find ways to stop them from scoring". He would also have four catches for 39 yards out of the backfield.
The Seahawks got Blair Walsh's second field goal instead and still trailed 7-6.
"It is a long season", Lacy said. Rodgers in the many recent meetings between these teams has avoided Richard Sherman on the other side.
Next week, the Seahawks look to bounce back in their home opener against the San Francisco 49ers. With the Packers scuffling offensively early against the Legion of Boom, the defense matched the Seahawks series for series. The Seahawks lost in the divisional round of the National Football League playoffs to the Atlanta Falcons 36-20 and the Packers lost in the Conference Championship 44-21.
Wilson said: "I think we can do it as much as we need do". That left it up to the defense, which came through in a big way, forcing the Seahawks to go three-and-out on four of their first five possessions.
