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.

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.

Rodgers is a stud.

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?

Big guys would really suck for the ZB scheme.

I've been hearing a lot of reports from various football sites that say the vets Taush and Cliffy have been hurting so much more than has been let on.

I read somewhere that Cliffy's hamstring problem made it real tough for him to be able to stay low in his stance last week.

Either way, the vets who've been rock solid for years past have been uncharacteristically below average. I'm thinking it does have something to do with injuries, and not simply they've lost 'it'.

It was a nice game all-around for the Packers today. The only real area of weakness was the run blocking. And it didn't help that McCarthy kept calling for those off-tackle runs to the left, gaining 1-3 yards every time. That drove me nuts. They finally ran one to the right and gained 7 yards.

But yeah, the good stuff: Rodgers, Jennings, Driver, Kampman, Collins, Woodson, Tramon Williams, and on special teams, Will Blackmon. Plus, Mason Crosby hit a long field goal to pretty much ice the game in the fourth quarter. The pass blocking was pretty good, and so was the pass rush. This was the first game since the opener where the Packers clearly outplayed their opponent at the line of scrimmage.

I sat down to watch the game. After about 15 min my wife told me we needed to go see out son. He was pretty sick and she wanted to Mother him and wanted me to come along. :crybaby:
I missed most of the game. Oh well. :shrug:
He is doing better so it was worth it. Unfortunately I am not exactly sure how the team played.
Grant had 33 carries. He may not have had a great yard per carry but he was a Hoss today.

It didn't show statistically, but Grant set the tone in this game.

If the Packers are going to win, they have to stay physical. I don't know if Bigby will be ready next week, but the secondary is going to have to stay rested because Peyton Manning seems to be back from his slump.

The trio of Harrison, Wayne, and Gonzalez are probably the best group of WR's we'll face all season.

This was an easy win as it should have been. Seattle is one of the few teams banged up more than us, and one of the worst teams in the NFC right now. That said, I take our success with the pass rush today with a grain of salt. It was against a bad team, and we should dominate bad teams. I don't see that in the Colts team I watched today. If the Colts play with that intensity next week, we're going to get pasted.

While maybe not impressive to most teams, relative to the other 5 games we played, I was impressed by 5 penalties for 45 yards. And I don't recall a single one coming at a critical time of the game. Coach has been talking about the correctable things for 3 weeks now and they seemed to finally show some improvement. The team just didn't look as sloppy today. That's a good sign.

That's a good point, Matt. FINALLY they took care of the penalty problem.

not TOO impressive to beat the 'Hawks with a backup QB...though the past few losses were really lost to penalties...so yeah, great job on that front. i think we coulda gained another 7 pts, at least another 3...but Rodgers was obviously like "dudes. i'm in PAIN. let's kneel it and go home."

Grant? what can i say? at least he gained POSITIVE yardage this week, but 33 carries and less than 100 yds? that's just sad. really sad. will he be the fluke of the year?

Rodgers? fucking champ. i can't believe how tough and precise he is. PLEASE stay healthy, my friend.

Jennings? he stays healthy he'll be a shoe-in for a HOF'er spot in a few decades.

Even if Rodgers was not in pain. Unwritten rule is if the game is in hand take a knee and don't run the score up. Most coaches follow that but not all.
