With the defense as exhausted as they were, they could not stop the Aaron Rodgers led offense in the fourth quarter. "I only play one game at a time", said Wilson, who starred in his senior season in college with the Wisconsin Badgers in 2011.
After a three-and-out by Seattle, Rodgers went to work again. Also behind the play, Davante Adams and Jeremy Lane got into it and Lane was ejected from the game for apparently throwing a punch. In those three games combined, the Packers have sacked Wilson 10 times and intercepted him 10 times; in their first two meetings with him - the first being the infamous "Fail Mary" game - they failed to intercept him, gave up four touchdown passes and only sacked him twice.
But it was the Seahawks who were backed up late in the half with:55 remaining when Mike McCarthy called back to back timeouts hoping to get the ball back. The forced fumble Daniels provided in the third quarter sparked the Packers offense with a touchdown the next play.
Surprisingly, it was Green Bay's offense that started off cold to open the season. On third-and-long for Seattle, Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels beat guard Luke Joeckel for a strip-sack, with outside linebacker Kyler Fackrell recovering.
The Packers extended the lead to 14-6 just before the end of the third quarter. Atlanta's Matt Bryant answered with a 37-yard field goal, making it 23-17 with 3:24 left. So, what did the Packers' "forgotten" receiver do today?
That was the 12th touchdown pass of Rodgers career where he caught a defense with too many men on the field, far and away, the most in the NFL.
The Seahawks took a 3-0 lead on Blair Walsh's 33-yard field goal in the closing seconds of the first half.
Martellus Bennett took exception and shoved Wright down well after the whistle resulting in a personal foul penalty.

"Beat the guy in front of you", Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniel said.
Rodgers saw his streak of 251-passes without an INT snapped, but after a slow start he finished 28-for-42 for 311 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. However, it wasn't the defense that most thought would perform at an elite level.
Randall Cobb was the favorite target with 9 catches for 85 yards, majority quick strikes from the slot or crossing the middle. In the receiving end, Randall Cobb posted 85 yards in nine receptions while Jordy Nelson added 79 yards and a touchdown in seven catches. Wilson was held to 14 of 27 for 158 yards. He also led the team in rushing with 40 yards. Green Bay held the ball for 39 minutes.
It was a collective effort on defense and that's where we'll begin with a trip inside the winning locker room. Accordingly, the offense struggled in the first half. Jason Spriggs had a hamstring injury and didn't return.
