Seahawks stumble again at Lambeau, 17-9

Seahawks stumble again at Lambeau, 17-9

Aaron Rodgers will undoubtedly bring a performance-level of rivalry. It's undeniable, however, that Lambeau Field has been a house of horrors for Seattle for over a decade. Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers has been a lightning rod for criticism from Packers fans, making the hashtag #FireCapers a popular sight on Twitter. Avril's illegal block? We've seen much worse go uncalled.

Mike Daniels: Daniels had an outstanding game for the Packers defense.

Green Bay's passing defense was not very good last season (31 in the league). Jon Kitna threw two touchdown passes for the Seahawks and Brett Favre threw four interceptions in the Packers' 27-7 loss.

The Packers have had Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's number over their past three meetings, with regular-season victories at Lambeau Field each of the past two seasons and that unforgettable 2014 NFC Championship Game, when they completely dominated him - until they didn't, of course. Time for the Seahawks to see how much of a coup that one-year, prove-it contract they gave their 250-pound masher back may be. Seattle's running backs gained 53 yards on 15 rushes.

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

The Seahawks don't have an offensive line that will allow them to trade scores with the Packers.

If you like defense, then the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers matchup Sunday afternoon was the game of the week for you.

Penn State's James Franklin on win over Pitt: 'Just like beating Akron'
Trace McSorley played quarterback in two of Penn State's biggest games a year ago , the Big Ten championship and the Rose Bowl. Head coach James Franklin did not see any reason to get excited over Penn State's 33-14 victory over Pittsburgh on Saturday.

On Sunday, that looked like a particularly steep cost for production gained. This time, not only did Daniels hit Wilson, but also forced the only Seahawk turnover of the day, a fumble that was recovered by Kyler Fackrell.

Starting boundary cornerbacks Davon House and Quinten Rollins both did superb jobs against the Seahawks top two wide receivers, Doug Baldwin and Paul Richardson.

With more balance, the Packers could be the best team in the NFL. Safeties Kentrell Brice, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, and Morgan Burnett all had good games for the Packers.

Jimmy Graham? Three catches for eight yards on seven targets. The Packers gave up multiple sacks in every single preseason game which is extremely concerning with due to the defensive line of the Seahawks.

That sets up the the Packers offense for first and goal, and Ty Montgomery finds the lane for the touchdown.

"They were the stars of the game for sure". 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. Weren't they great? The Seahawks did well against them.

"We have to recognize Eddie was an excellent, excellent player for us for three years there and it is unfortunate that you don't get to continue on with your own guys and that is usually the way we go forward", Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said.
