Packers defense saves the day in win over Seahawks (AUDIO)

12 September 2017

It was not until the third quarter that the Packers would get on the board, following a Mike Daniels strip sack inside the ten-yard line. "He could still feel some stuff; so that's why we made that decision". "I'm disappointed that play would have such magnitude on the game".

Perennial hopes to return to the Super Bowl might rest on whether the Packers can successfully answer familiar issues on the other side of the ball.

But after Sunday's win against the Seattle Seahawks in which Daniels led the charge with his stout defensive performance, he just continues being one of the most underrated players at his position in the league.

Clinton-Dix believes Lacy has had this game circled on his calendar ever since the schedule came out. He was sacked three times, but Green Bay put plenty of pressure on Wilson all afternoon. If the Packers are going to go 2-0 they will need Rodgers to once again get protection and time to make plays, but the Packers appear to also have a great need for its defense to play like they did Sunday. They held ultra-athletic tight end Jimmy Graham to just three catches for eight yards. The Packers and Seahawks both struggled with poor offensive line play that really marred any semblance of offense from showing itself.

Our long National Football League drought is finally over! No one has to tell the players how important a victory would be. The Texans didn't play their final preseason game against the the Dallas Cowboys due to the hurricane Harvey aftermath.

But Carroll indicated not to read much into that disparity saying Carson "got a little bit more room" to run than did Lacy. "I agree with the way the guys on television saw it", he said. "There were a couple of throws he had chances but they got broken up - they got legitimately broken up".

The Packers will open new Mercedes-Benz Stadium Sunday night.

"There were five red (zone) snaps we won down there", defensive coordinator Dom Capers said. "I'm disappointed that play would have such magnitude on the game", Carroll said.

Carroll continued: "But it's just such a drastic thing to do that I wish that they would have had cooperation from more than one official and just talk about it, and figure it out because it's such a big call". "I thought we were going in the right direction". I wouldn't trust this offensive line to stop a nosebleed.

The group stage of this year's Champions League kicks off today with Man United and Chelsea in action from England. We played two days ago, and then we have to play tomorrow, and then we have to play a hard game against Arsenal .

Like Carr, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was also playing his first game since suffering a broken leg on the same day but against a different team.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 311 yards, but Seattle was able to sack him four times. "But this game we weren't as sharp".

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.

The Packers will have to make a roster move at some point this week to clear a spot for wide receiver Geronimo Allison, who missed Sunday's opener while serving a one-game suspension following a misdemeanor arrest for marijuana possession last November.
