The Green Bay Packers played their second straight home game and kept the home crowd happy with a monster 38-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
It didn’t take the Pack long at all to get things going. In fact, it barely took over a minute before Aaron Rodgers found Davante Adams streaking down the field for a 66-yard touchdown.
The Seahawks responded to the quick score of their own on the next drive, marching right back down to the field to set up Steven Hauschka for an easy 29-yard field goal. That was the last thing anyone on Seattle did positively for a very long time. Their only touchdown wouldn’t come until the fourth quarter long after the game had already been decided.
Green Bay’s offense, on the other hand, never slowed down. The Pack managed to score a touchdown in all four quarters and never allowed Seattle an opportunity to play the game they wanted.
While Wilson and just about every player on the Seahawks struggled, the Packers looked unstoppable. Along with Adams’ first quarter TD, Rodgers found WR Jordy Nelson in the end zone twice, making it the 56th and 57th time they have connected for a touchdown.
Green Bay’s secondary consumed the field, putting in work that was just as, if not even more, impressive on the defensive end as on offense. The Packers’ secondary dismantled Russell Wilson’s attack, picking him off five times, which is a career-worst for the Super Bowl champion.
The Packers showed some real tenacity with how seamlessly the entire team was able to come together to effectively diffuse every threat the Seahawks always pose to even the toughest teams.
At 7-6, Green Bay is alive in well in what’s been an inspiring push to reach the 2016 playoffs, as they improve their winning streak to three games.
