Seahawks win means Rams can’t clinch NFC West this week

The Rams had a chance to become the first team since 2002 — when the NFL went to 32 teams — to clinch a division title before Week 12. Then, they didn’t. The Seahawks didn’t cooperate. Seattle’s victory over Green Bay on Thursday night means the Rams will have to wait at least another week. [more]

Seahawks had to use silent count at times last night

The stadium in Seattle is one of the loudest in the NFL. On Thursday night, it was a little too loud, at times, for the home team. The Seahawks had to resort to a silent count at times during Friday night’s game. “We went silent count a couple times,” left tackle Duane Brown said after [more]

Mychal Kendricks rejoined Seahawks on Friday

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks rejoined the Seahawks on Friday, coach Pete Carroll told reporters. Kendricks will return to practice next week but remains ineligible to play until Dec. 10 against Minnesota.

Mike McCarthy’s reliance on “the numbers” underscores the extent of his blunder

Packers coach Mike McCarthy has parlayed the absence of a traditional owner and the presence of a transcendent quarterback into the kind of job security that few other coaches enjoy. McCarthy’s ability to escape scrutiny may now be coming to an end, and he has only himself to blame for it. For the third straight [more]

Russell Wilson was undeterred by first-half misfires

Much has been, and will be, said about the mishandling of the closing moments of Thursday night’s game by the Packers. It’s important to not lose sight of the fact that, regardless of anything the Packers did wrong, the Seahawks did plenty of things right.

Aaron Rodgers explains the frustrations that flow from short-week football

Most of the complaints that some players have made about Thursday Night Football relate to health and safety concerns.

After Thursday’s 27-24 loss to the Seahawks, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers addressed another complication that emerges from [more]

Packers-Seahawks draws a big rating for FOX

The NFL’s ratings continue to trend upward. Last night’s Packers-Seahawks game drew an 11.9 overnight rating, according to Austin Karp of SportsBusiness Daily‏.

Pete Carroll appreciated the late Green Bay punt

When assessing the wisdom of a coaching decision, perhaps the best evidence comes from the reaction of the opposing coach. If it’s glee, then the decision may have been ill-advised. And that accurately describes Seahawks coach Pete Carroll’s reaction to Packers coach Mike McCarthy’s decision to punt the ball on fourth and two from his [more]

Tramon Williams on late punt: I want to go for it, play to win

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy’s decision to punt on fourth-and-two while down three points with 4:20 left to play in Thursday night’s loss to the Seahawks began being second-guessed even before the Seahawks were able to run out the clock. It wasn’t just people watching the game from afar who felt they would have handled [more]

Aaron Rodgers waits for “one galvanizing moment” to get the season going

The 4-5-1 Packers have yet to win on the road, and they’re running out of time to get enough wins to earn the ability to go on the road in January.

Seahawks center Justin Britt critical of officiating, says Packers were simulating snap counts

Seattle Seahawks center Justin Britt was in a terrific mood after Thursday night’s 27-24 win over the Green Bay Packers.

Seahawks ground and pound Packers 27-24

Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson dueled throw-for-throw, touchdown-for-touchdown, fist pump-for-fist pump in a game neither team could afford to lose. But the Seahawks made sure it lacked the great finish that has defined games between the teams, running out the final 4:11 to keep Rodgers on the sideline. Seattle won 27-24 to move to 5-5, [more]

Seahawks’ challenge leads to FG

The Packers, who benefited from Dez Bryant‘s catch becoming an incompletion after replay in the 2014 playoffs, disagreed with Al Riveron’s decision on a Seattle catch Thursday. Both Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy were caught shaking their heads. On third-and-seven from the Seattle 6, Russell Wilson threw deep to David Moore. Moore briefly had the [more]
