Seattle Seahawks: 3 Big takeaways from win vs

The Green Bay Packers will have linebacker Blake Martinez and cornerback Bashaud Breeland available Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

Russell Wilson #3 of the Seattle Seahawks runs out front to block Ibraheim Campbell #39 of the Green Bay Packers for Mike Davis #27 of the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on November 15, 2018 in Seattle, Washington. As it turned out, Graham had left the game with a hand injury, and the Packers subbed in Tonyan.

Mike McCarthy acknowledged Friday afternoon he is aware of the chatter about his job security and the debate outside the building about whether his 13th year as the Green Bay Packers' coach should be his last. The thing about that that's important is our belief in the running game, and we get the ball in that situation.

"I don't think you can tune it out. We didn't have clean information there", McCarthy said. "I still believe we have a lot to play for".

"We set a standard here the past 12 years and it's our responsibility to play to that standard", McCarthy told ESPN.

Rockets set to axe 10-time NBA All-Star
Anthony's game has degraded significantly from his peak as a 10-time All-Star and one of the best scorers in the league. I understand exactly what the culture is that we've created here and I'm not going to let that fall from one incident.

Chris Carson rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown, overcoming the mistake of fumbling on the first play of the game and setting up Green Bay's opening score.

McCarthy, who led the Packers to one Super Bowl title and nine playoff appearances in his first 11 seasons, is in danger of missing the playoffs in consecutive years for the first time in his career.

One of those moments could have come had McCarthy made a decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 from his own 33-yard line with 4:20 left against the Seahawks.

In Jones' first four games of the season, he only received 36 touches even though he was averaging 5.88 yards per carry.

The Seahawks have 288 rushing attempts this season, second to only the Rams. He has surpassed 100 receiving yards just once while tallying more at least four catches five times this season. A loss would have likely proved too much to overcome with games remaining against Carolina, Minnesota and Kansas City.
