Packers survive Seahawks

The Green Bay Packers staved off a strong second-half push by Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks Sunday night, winning the game 28-25 at Lambeau Field.

 

The Packers got off to a fast start with Aaron Rodgers finding Davante Adams open for a 20-yard score on their opening drive. After the Seahawks got on the board with a field goal, the Packers pushed across the endzone twice in the second quarter thanks to the legs of Aaron Jones. The two teams would trade scores in the third quarter with Rodgers finding Adams again from 40 yards out after the Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch got his first of two touchdowns to open the second half. The Seahawks would score two more touchdowns to bring the game to within three with just a few minutes left. After the Seahawks punted the ball, the Packers were able to drain down the clock with a completion to Jimmy Graham the game clincher.

 

The Packers will head to San Francisco to play another 5:40 p.m. Sunday game with a chance to go to the Super Bowl on the line.
