Packers/Seahawks Fast Five Reaction


1. Pack built an early lead. Green Bay took control of the game early, putting three touchdowns on the board in the first half. That was crucial as they held off the inevitable Seattle second half charge.

2. They also answered the call. Seattle, known for its comebacks, took the second half kickoff and drove in for a score to cut the lead to 21-10. The Packers countered with a five-play, 75-yard drive that resulted in a Rodgers to Adams touchdown that ultimately became the game-winning points.

3. Russell Wilson is a magician. You could make an argument that the Seahawks’ quarterback is the NFL MVP. His style isn’t the prettiest but he has almost singlehandedly won games this season, especially when the running game disappeared. Wilson threw for 277 yards and was Seattle’s leading rusher with 74 yards. His efforts in the second half today were remarkable.

4. Referees featured too prominently. You know the officials are noticeable when each team’s fanbase thinks they’re getting the short end of the stick. As the game went on, Seattle fans felt more and more hard done by, and even the game-sealing first down created some controversy.

5. Green Bay heroes and Seattle Villains. Rodgers, of course, was sensational, especially in the clutch. Davante Adams had eight catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns. The Packers’ defense sacked Wilson five times. Meanwhile, Malik Turner dropped a huge pass that would have been good for a first down on the Seahawks’ final drive and Jadeveon Clowney had three penalties called against him.
