  • Carroll Rawls is questionable for Seahawks’ season opener

Green Bay tacked on Mason Crosby's 40-yard field goal before Wilson quickly drove the Seahawks into scoring position.

Green Bay Packers saw off the Seattle Seahawks 17-9 in their home season opener at Lambeau Field, thanks to a much-improved performance from their defence.

The Seahawks could point to two controversial penalties that negated what appeared to be a 64-yard interception return for a touchdown by Nazair Jones in the first quarter as a turning point. Jeremy Lane was ejected after allegedly throwing a punch. "He is just such a fantastic football player".

And Blair Walsh was a ideal 3-for-3 on field goals, with a long of 41 yards. The Packers are a good team and a loss at Lambeau Field was not unexpected. He was sacked three times, but Green Bay put plenty of pressure on Wilson all afternoon. The Packers scored on the next play on a Ty Montgomery run to take a 7-3 lead at the 10:33 mark of the third quarter and never trailed again.

"If our defense plays like that, we're going to be tough to beat", Rodgers said. Thomas Rawls is coming off a high-ankle sprain and hasn't played since the preseason opener August 13.

Instead, the Seahawks managed just 90 on 18 carries - 59 of which came on two runs (one by Chris Carson and another by Russell Wilson).

That and a couple incomplete passes on well-covered plays designed for him are why he had three catches on seven targets for only 8 yards on Sunday.

WR Paul Richardson - Richardson quietly has moved into the starting lineup for the Seahawks, He has the kind of long-ball ability that Wilson hasn't had at his disposal much during his time with Seattle.

Perhaps the biggest play of the game came in the third quarter.

The first half would have ended scoreless had McCarthy's decision to use two timeouts with Seattle backed up in the final minute not backfired.

Adams looked to have his hands on Lane's face mask when Lane retaliated, drawing the flag.

"That's definitely huge for us to have that opportunity", Packers wide receiver, Randall Cobb said. Up until the last 50 seconds of the first half, both teams struggled to get into their stride.

The Packers offense fared slightly better, putting together several solid drives and clearly winning the time of possession battle but yielded no points in the half for their efforts. Wilson had a bad opener and RB Eddie Lacy had a awful return to Green Bay.

Monday, they'll get back on the field at their practice facility in Renton, going back to work to fix more problems than they hoped they'd have.

The Packers' defensive front pushed Seattle's offensive line all over the place as the Seahawks gained just 225 yards, fewest in nearly three years, and Seattle was held to just three Blair Walsh field goals. A 34-yard pass from Wilson to Doug Baldwin, followed immediately by Wilson's 29-yard scramble, set up the score.
