Wayne Larrivee's Packers-Seahawks pregame primer I: About the Seahawks

Carroll Rawls is questionable for Seahawks’ season opener

"I'm disappointed that play would have such magnitude on the game". If Rodgers doesn't have to win shootouts every week-if Green Bay can improve upon its 22nd-ranked defense from last season-the Packers will be more than just the favorites in the NFC North, or even one of the leading contenders in the NFC. Asked if he would sit for the anthem before this week's game, his brother Martellus said, "Not at this point". It could easily have helped to kill a promising game-sealing drive in the final minutes.

The Packers will take their 1-0 record to Atlanta next Sunday night to face the Falcons. Seattle had just 25 yards of total offense over their first five series, all of which ended in punts.

"Our defense plays like that and we're going to be tough to beat", quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. "One or two plays, one, two, three plays here and there would have had the chance".

For Bennett, he would do it all over again if he needed to do so and also said that he wasn't about to stand for what took place against his quarterback.

He knows Aaron Rodgers is coming at him.

"They actually gave me an offer, but I just thought this situation was better than Green Bay", McCaffrey said.

Carroll said Seattle had practiced such situations all week and that, "We should have made it off the field". But Rawls is still trying to get fully healthy after being slowed late in the preseason by a high-ankle injury, meaning Lacy could be the No. 1 back in his return to Green Bay. "We were in the backfield a bunch and got the big plays". "So for us it's to continue to keep chopping away, continue to keep getting better as a team and as an individual and if we do that, the sky's the limit for this squad". Rodgers drove the ball down the field, converting several first downs and grinding out the clock. At 6-foot-6, Bennett offers kind of athletic target in red zone Packers haven't had at tight end since Jermichael Finley.

When Rodgers threw what appeared to be only the second pick-six of his career in the first quarter, a play that would have given Seattle at 7-0 early lead, it was called back because of a game-ejecting penalty on the Seahawks' Jeremy Lane. The Seahawks retained possession but another fruitless drive would ensue. Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers has been a lightning rod for criticism from Packers fans, making the hashtag #FireCapers a popular sight on Twitter. In the moment, most were thinking the worst. Replays showed Adams with a healthy grab of Lane's facemask but no clear evidence of a punch, which left questions for Seahawks coach Pete Carroll about more than his team's poor offensive performance when he met the media. Marty and I have become fast friends, and I respect him a lot. - Only one quarterback in the National Football League was sacked more than the 41 times that Wilson was dumped a year ago.
