Packers’ defense leads the way in 17-0 win over Seahawks

Aaron Rodgers returned on a cold and snowy day at Lambeau Field, but he wasn’t the primary reason the Packers beat the Seahawks.

It was Green Bay’s defense that got the job done, shutting Seattle down in a 17-0 win.

Rodgers returned from his COVID-19 absence and completed 23 of 37 passes for 292 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception. He was fine but far from great; the interception to Jamal Adams in the end zone was a particularly bad decision.

But Rodgers was still a lot better than Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who was returning from a broken finger and couldn’t do anything. He finished with two interceptions and led the Seahawks to no points, the first time the Seahawks have ever been shut out with Wilson at quarterback. And an ugly game got even uglier for the Seahawks’ offense at the end, when DK Metcalf was ejected in the final minutes.

It was another big showing for the Packers’ defense, which has been playing very good football of late. The Packers expect Rodgers to lead them into the playoffs, but today showed that Rodgers doesn’t have to be at his best for the Packers to win.

The win improves the Packers to 8-2, and they currently have the inside track for the all-important No. 1 playoff seed in the NFC. The loss drops the Seahawks to 3-6, and their playoff hopes are just about gone.

  1. Guess what haters?????? ARod is still unvaccinated LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!

    Heeeee HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Every year the Seahawks employ Pete Carroll is another year the franchise moves backwards. Bobby Wagner has lost two steps and no first round picks because of poor free agent signings. Remove Carroll, Trade Wilson and do a complete rebuild. It’s their only way out.

    What do you guys think DK Metcalf’s Wonderlic score was?

  3. Loved seeing Jenkins getting his first Lambeau Leap, he and Dillon did it right with the 180 degree turn.

  4. First time Wilson has been shut out as a pro.
    Lots of cheap, chippy behavior from the Seahawks today. A real pleasure to see their playoff hopes get blown out of the air.

  5. I like in being in the driver’s seat for the #1 seed in spite of our selfish, horse-dewormed, fibbing QB.

  6. The dichotomy of a Seattle game:

    You hate seeing this happen to Russell Wilson.

    You LOVE seeing this happen to Pete Carroll.

  7. Love it, keep the hate coming. Had Rodgers not had 5+ dropped passes he’d be looking at close to or even over 400 yards passing after 10 days of no practice. Looked pretty good to me.

  8. Same ol’ Seahawks, the O-line can’t stop a horsefly. With the talent on defense they SHOULD be playing waaaay better then are. Ken Norton the DC NEEDS TO GET FIRED!! Wilson looked rusty and out sync and Metcalf needs to learn to hang on to the ball. 🏈

  9. Russell Wilson was the worst QB of the day by far. No zip, no deep ball ability and happy feet galore. Rodgers was bad too but compared to Wilson they weren’t even in the same building my god.

  10. Packers beat a 3-5 team at home…..lol. ya all prancing around the internet like you won something. The 4-5 Vikings beat the Seahawks. Lol…..but you all do you.lol

  11. The 2021 Green Bay Packers are like that old “Chicago” song, “Feeling stronger everyday……..”

  12. Packers looking like the best team in the NFC right now and stating the facts. Pats looking like the AFC’s dark horse. Don’t count them out yet.

  13. Offensively, BOTH teams looked pathetic for the first 3 qtrs. Then Seattle D ran out of gas and their prima donna player lost his cool…again. But most importantly he looked good with his dyed hair and cool eye makeup. Gotta have priorities. Tough game to watch.

    You might want to tabulate all the comments from the Zimmer era, divide by two (playoff victories), and stay in your lane.

  15. A sober front office would begin making plans to trade Wilson and any other tangible asset in the off-season and gear up for a rebuild. Seattle trades precious draft capital for overpaid jokers like Jamaal Adams and when they do have picks the choices are guys like Rashard Penny. Pete Carrol had a good run but dude has had the game pass him by. Move on Seattle.

  16. Wilson looked like Geno Smith out there. DK deserves a nice hefty fine. Packers got under his skin. Got to be more mentally tough out there. People may be talking trash but you can’t just start grabbing facemasks out there. I would say the goose is cooked on Seattles season. If Seattle loses next week to the Cardinals they might as well shut down Wilson for the season.

  17. Trade Russell Wilson to Cleveland. They have the offensive line to run the football and keep him upright as he ages.

    Yeah, you know, you’re right.
    The Packers could win again next week and it wouldn’t really even mean that much. 🤣

    Are you serious? Russell Wilson comes off finger surgery and you say, “He has no zip and no deep ball ability?” Too funny….

  20. Rodgers might be/is a complicated guy but he’s a winner. You could tell he was not 100% but gutted it out.

  21. Rodgers can sure play … and he’s still a lying dirtbag. The two are not mutually exclusive.

  22. Just take the rest of the season off Russ and let that finger heal up. Let the rebuild begin in Seattle.

  23. Russ is back! Seahawks will win out and finish 11-6.

    31 teams afraid, very afraid.

    Right 12’s?

  24. The refs get a lot of credit for this victory. No way were they letting the pack lose this
    game. Rogers fumble gets given to the packers because why? Rogers had one hand on top of it? The interception in the end zone, according to every other catch has to be completed to the ground with control. The totally obvious pass interference not called against the pack
    I don’t even like seattle but I sure hate to see a game taken away by the refs.

  25. Neither of these two teams would do anything in the playoffs…some sorry offense by both teams.

  26. “After reflection I’m pretty sure AJ Dillon wasn’t a wasted draft pick. Thoughts?”

    Correct, but J. Love plus a 3rd WAS….

  27. Diehard pats fan and Bostonian. I have to question whether Pete Carol and Schneider have lost it. Poor drafting, mortgaging the future draft picks for a great player in Jamal Adams, but he isn’t going to fix all of their issues…:::

    8-2 team destined to return their All-Pro Left Tackle and All-Pro cornerback pitches shut out despite a no practice QB with a covid hangover.

    Green Bay will do something in the playoffs. Play a game. Skol!

  29. Did you all see the Packers-Seahawks playoff game in 2019 when GB earned the game ending 1st down and Pete Carroll threw a tantrum like a 2 year old whose parents wouldn’t buy him a treat? That was funny.

    ________________

    Its about more than just beating the Seahawks, the defense has been playing amazing, they beat an undefeated Cardinals on a short week, they held Mahomes and a Chiefs offense that can score pretty easily to 13 points, and then shut out the hawks.

    That’s what Packer fans are excited about.

    After 1 start in a season game you know this how? Love didn’t cost the Packer’s the Chief’s game, Special teams did.

    ==========

    Lets say Seattle gets both of those turnovers; do you have any faith that they would have scored?

  33. Ken Norton the DC NEEDS TO GET FIRED!!
    ==========

    Its Pete’s defense.. why should Norton have to fall on the sword?

  34. Diehard pats fan and Bostonian. I have to question whether Pete Carol and Schneider have lost it. Poor drafting, mortgaging the future draft picks for a great player in Jamal Adams, but he isn’t going to fix all of their issues…:::
    ==========

    Dealing Draft capitol has been their MO since they built the Super Bowl teams (Percy Harvin, Jimmy Graham, Sheldon Richardson, Dwayne Brown, Jadeveon Clowney..) None of those moves really paid dividends the way they were hoping for. No different with Adams.

    They definitely haven’t drafted well, that is their biggest issue as the anchors of the Super Bowl teams moved on.

    Ownership is a big question. Paul Allen was very hands-off. No one has a pulse on what his sister (who inherited the team) will do.

    If this thing goes down in flames, I think Pete may have the good sense to walk away.
