Packers: Russell Wilson endures another Lambeau loss | Pro football

It was a rousing debut for the revamped Packers defense, which will face a bigger challenge next week at Atlanta.

The unit that received so much attention for the way last season ended held the Seahawks without a touchdown all game long, fueling a 17-9 season-opening triumph on Sunday in front of 78,381 at Lambeau Field. "It's time to go win games", coach Mike McCarthy said.

"They were the thermostat today". Packers 24, Seahawks 20. With the score 0-0, Seattle got the ball at its 11-yard line.

The first half was a virtual stalemate.

The Seahawks lost to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Regardless, Green Bay came away with a needed victory to move to 1-0 on the year. Two plays later, Perry dominated Odhiambo again and sacked Wilson.

Green Bay recovered the fumble, and Ty Montgomery scored on a six-yard run the next play. "I thought Mike was dominant".

The numbers tell the story. "We were in the backfield a bunch".

The defense simply never gave in. If the game somehow resembles a shootout, that will bode in Green Bay's favor.

The Packers went deep to his favorite receiver on a free play that was extended after Seattle were flagged for having too many men on the field.

Green Bay's top graded offensive player was Jordy Nelson, who caught seven of his eight targets for 79 yards and a touchdown. You played four games already in the preseason.' So I just really listened to that.

Carroll was also asked about a non-call on a throw to tight end Jimmy Graham in the end zone in the second half of the game.

However in the second half, the Packers put together a couple of good drives to put points on the board. With any of the trio sidelined, Seattle allowed 14 touchdowns and recorded three interceptions. Again, replays showed Avril lightly pushing Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as he chased Jones.

Seattle's Walsh made a 41-yard field goal to make it a 17-9 game at the 6:21 mark. He led Seattle with 40 rushing yards, but the Packers sacked him three times for a minus 23 yards. The big story leading into the Packers Seahawks game is the Packers Right Tackle Bryan Bulaga is out, and Kyle Murphy filling in that position. In his first NFL start, against one of the league's top defenses, Murphy wasn't ideal but certainly held his own.

"That was the 2016 team; it's 2017", safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix said. "His personality is flawless for this situation".

"He simply makes that thing go, so keeping him in the pocket has been instrumental as far as forcing his arm to beat us because when he escapes the pocket, much like Aaron, that's when he's most risky, when those receivers become uncovered", Matthews said. It isn't like we parked someone behind him all day, either. Seattle is 19-13-1 in its past 33 road games dating to 2013. Rather than acquire a go-to guy in the offseason, they chose to stick with Ty Montgomery.

"It felt great", Montgomery said.
