Seahawks — 3-0-0-7–10
Packers — 7-14-7-10–38
Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdowns and sat for most of the fourth quarter as the Packers rolled the Seahawks 38-10. Rodgers, who was limping throughout the game despite throwing for 246 yards, watched as Brett Hundley finished off what is Rodgers’ 15th straight home win as a starter.
Russell Wilson didn’t struggle as much as his protection and receivers did. More than one interception was caused by his own receivers, and Wilson was sacked three times. He finished with five interceptions, the most in any game of his career.
The Packers are now 7-6 and sneaking up on the second wild card spot in the NFC. They will travel next week to take on rival Chicago, while the 8-4-1 Seahawks will host the Rams on Thursday Night Football.
Rodgers Hits Jordy Again
The Packers are on fire on both sides of the ball. Wilson has four picks, Rodgers has three TD passes, and the NFC playoff race is about to get a little complicated.
Seattle’s Second Half Answer Is Denied
The Seahawks work the first drive of the third quarter in the redzone, but Wilson’s third interception goes out of the endzone for a touchback.
Rodgers Picks Apart Seattle For Six
Rodgers has started 11/12, with the 12th attempt landing in the arms of Jordy Nelson for Green Bay’s third TD of the half. The key play on the drive came on a third down, when K.J. Wright slipped while covering Ty Montgomery out of the backfield. That gave Rodgers 24 yards and a first down, leading to the Nelson TD.
Burnett’s INT Helps Extend Packer Lead
Green Bay’s defense is playing more physical than then Seattle offense, and the result is this Burnett pick. Rodgers scores four plays later on a one-yard handoff to Montgomery. Huge swing.
Montgomery Goes Beast Mode
Look familiar? The Packers receiver-turned-rusher is having a solid first quarter, but the drive ends with a missed field goal.
Rodgers Hits Adams To Open The Scoring
Aaron Rodgers has been on a tear over the past four weeks, and he wasted no time getting into the endzone. The Packers need just three plays to score, as Rodgers hits Davante Adams in stride for a 66-yard touchdown.

The Packers are surging up the Wild Card standings, shaking off a three-game losing streak to win back-to-back games. They are 4-2 at home this season, and host Seattle in a game that should be affected by the elements. Overnight snow has pummeled Green Bay, and over six inches of snow should fall before it ends around sundown. The field should be cleared by kickoff, but a wintry mix could join the wind and cold for kickoff.
The Seahawks have won four of five, and are cruising as the second seed in the NFC playoff race. They’ve gotten a big boost from the return of Thomas Rawls, who exploded for 106 yards on 15 carries in last week’s blowout win over Carolina.
