Rodgers dominates again as Packers go to 2-0 for first time since 2011
Aaron Rodgers engineered a fourth-quarter drive that finished with a touchdown toss to Richard Rodgers, cementing a Packers' 27-17 win over a Seattle Seahawks team that had given Rodgers and the Packers trouble in recent seasons.
The drive went 80 yards in ten plays, with Rodgers rallying the Packers despite injuries to Eddie Lacy and Davante Adams and pressure from the Seahawks defense. Jayrone Elliott's interception later in the fourth quarter helped the Packers tack on some insurance points with Mason Crosby's fourth field goal of the night.
Green Bay led 13-3 at the half thanks to a Rodgers touchdown pass to James Jones. James Starks filled in admirably for Lacy, rushing for 95 yards on 20 carries. Randall Cobb caught eight Rodgers passes for 116 yards. Wilson, the former Badgers, threw two touchdown passes of his own, the second of which gave Seattle a third quarter lead.
With the win, the Packers start a season 2-0 for the first time since 2011, the season Green Bay went 15-1 in the regular season. This win also helps ease the pain of two recent losses in Seattle, one coming in 2012 on a controversial last second touchdown pass and the other coming in the NFC Championship Game in January.
The Packers play the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football on September 28th in a matchup of the teams from the first Super Bowl.
