After huge 1st half, Packers go silent in loss to Seahawks

"There are games where we've rolled, in our history and places I've been, with very few personnel groupings, and (games where we've) gone to the other extreme where we've had four, five, six, seven groupings up in a given game", Pettine said.

The Seahawks rushed for 173 yards against the Packers, their eighth straight game running for at least 100 yards as a team and the seventh straight game topping 150 yards. Rodgers was unable to solve Seattle in the second half, and was left to watch Russell Wilson lead another late touchdown drive and send the Packers back home with a loss. The Packers (4-5-1) had leads of 14-3 and 21-17, only to see Wilson throw a 15-yard TD pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 remaining to give Seattle the lead for good.

With a little over four minutes left and one timeout remaining, McCarthy opted to punt the ball to Seattle on fourth-and-two.

The decision backfired. Green Bay never saw the ball again, instead forced to watch Wilson kneel three times to run out the clock.

A passing explosion like that isn't likely to happen this time. It was capped by a 54 yard bomb from Aaron Rodgers to a guy who just bought a Packers jersey on eBay.

The "Fail Mary" in 2012, the 2014 season opener when Seattle raised its Super Bowl banner and the NFC title game after the 2014 season are the only three times Rodgers has lost to the Seahawks in his career.

Green Bay is 0-5 on the road this season and has lost seven straight road games dating to past year. When you're playing in this environment, particularly when you're on the road up here. "But we talked it over game management-wise and that's the decision I made".

"It's a tough environment like I said but we've definitely done it before", Rodgers said. In fact, the first quarter was a major disappointment for the Seahawks offense.

Injuries certainly didn't help either. So when Chris Carson turned the ball over on Seattle's first play, I'm sure many 12s hung their heads. The secondary continues to suffer from injuries and has been able to be exploited. But this year has been drastically different for the Seattle Seahawks wideout, who's totaled just 23 receptions for 275 yards and no touchdowns in seven games.

The Packers used Lance Kendricks nearly exclusively in his place, but coach Mike McCarthy said rookie Robert Tonyan, who caught a 54-yard touchdown in the first half for his first career National Football League reception, could see his playing time increase if Graham misses significant time. "We've set ourselves up for a pretty good second half, we just have to get back to work. We're going to take our time, whatever time it takes to check that out", Carroll said.
