SEATTLE Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and ran for another as the Green Bay Packers pulled away in the second half and defeated the Seattle Seahawks 27-17 at Qwest Field on Sunday afternoon.

With the victory, the Packers (3-3) pulled into a three-way tie with the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings atop the NFC North Division. Seattle falls to 1-4, tied with St. Louis for last place in the NFC West.

The first half was close, tied at 3 and then at 10. Rodgers scored on a 1-yard plunge with 1 minute, 8 seconds left in the half to pull the Packers into a 10-all tie.

In the second half, though, it was all Packers.

[img_r][/img_r]Green Bay went ahead for good at 17-10 on Rodgers 45-yard bomb to Greg Jennings with 5:56 left in the third quarter. The Packers made it 24-10 on Rodgers 1-yard pass to fullback John Kuhn with 11:23 left in the game.

Packers cornerback Charles Woodson foiled the Seahawks next drive, intercepting a Charlie Frye pass to set up a 51-yard field goal by Mason Crosby with 8:41 left.

Seattles next drive also ended in a turnover, with cornerback Tramon Williams making an athletic interception against former Packers receiver Koren Robinson.

Frye was filling in for Matt Hasselbeck, who missed the game with a knee injury. Frye threw touchdown passes of 6 yards to tight end John Carlson in the second quarter and 5 yards to wide receiver Keary Colbert in the fourth quarter.

Second-string quarterback Seneca Wallace didnt play for Seattle because of a calf injury.

Green Bays offense hammered the Seahawks in the second half, with running back Ryan Grant pounding away. He finished with 33 carries for 90 yards. The Packers had 313 yards of total offense to 177 for Seattle.

Rodgers was 21-of-30 passing for 208 yards, good for a 111.5 passer rating. He had no interceptions, but lost a fumble in the second quarter.

Frye was 12-of-23 passing for 83 yards. His passer rating was 53.4. [url=index.php?name=Pro_News&aid=90]Read More...[/url].

This team showed a bit more unity on the field than in previous games. By that I mean it looked like the team (namely the D) was in sync and players one individual match-ups, controlled the gaps for the most part.

This game is a big win, but the Packers HAVE to use it as a game that turns their season around, they have to grow from this game.

Ball control was the key today.. we kept our defense on the field for limited durations.. even though the running game was less than dominant, it helped balance the offense.

I though the preplay movement helped the passing game as well.. much better playcalling.

with all the replacements we got out there, we were bound to hit some rough patches. hopefully, we continue playing hard. i was just relieved to see consistant effort out there.

I think we missed B-Jack today.

Grant still seems to be less than 100%. He's just not where he was at the second half of the season last year.

I'm getting more and more worried that he's not snapping out of whatever funk he is in. He showed signs last week, but this week he had problems after the first couple of series.

Grant wasn't gaining a lot of yards, but he was moving the ball forward at least. Every yard counts when you're looking for that 3rd down conversion. We were solid on 3rd down after the first quarter, and I think that's what helped us come away with the W instead of losses like we had the past two weeks.

i saw no intensity today i know its a win but it looked like they new they could score or stop them anytime that they wanted to

it was a really weird looking game and i think rodgers is more hurt than we think (hes still a stud and made all the throws that he wanted too)

The o-line made up of old guys (clinfton and tauscher) and a bunch of late round draft picks equals Grant getting little net yards. Let draft some studs in the o-line...a la Dallas...get some HUGE bodies out there and dominate...opens up the passing game. Kudos to the win...Jennings is a stud...and Jordy made some catches... Did HAWK do anything?
