Seahawks outlast Packers 27-24

Green Bay falls to 4-5-1

The Packers and Seahawks aren’t traditional rivals, but every time they play it seems like it. Seattle outlasted Green Bay 27-24 to put the Pack in desperation mode.

Seahawks running back Chris Carson fumbled on the first play from scrimmage, and the Packers defensive back Tramon Williams recovered just inside the Seattle 30 yard line. Aaron Jones scored on an 8-yard run to make it 7-0.

After a Seattle field goal, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers launched a 54-yard touchdown pass to seldom-used rookie tight end Robert Tonyan to make it 14-3. It was Tonyan’s first career catch.

Jones came up big again in the second quarter, hauling in a 24-yard Rodgers pass to make it 21-17 Packers with :44 to go in the half.

In the fourth quarter, Mason Crosby put the Packers ahead 24-20 with a 36-yard field goal.

Russell Wilson hit Ed Dickson for a 15-yard touchdown pass with 5:08 to go to put the Seahawks up 27-24. The Packers had a 3rd & 2 play with 4:20 go, but Rodgers short-hopped a pass to Marquez
Vales-Scantling. The Packers punted, and the Seahawks picked up a pair of first downs to run out the clock.

The Packers fall to 4-5-1 (0-5 on the road), and the Seahawks improve 5-5.
