Packers trail at halftime, 7-0

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on September 24, 2012 – 9:05 pm

SEATTLE—The Packers trailed the Seahawks, 7-0, at halftime of Monday night’s game at CenturyLink Field.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sacked a stunning eight times by a Seattle defense that had sacked the quarterback only twice through the first two weeks of the season. A big part of the pass-protection problem for the Packers was its inability to present any kind of rushing threat.

Cedric Benson carried the ball only twice for four yards in the first half. The failure to run the ball left the Seahawks to focus on the pass.

Seattle’s young and talented secondary blanketed the Packers’ receivers, leaving Rodgers to throw for only 86 yards. Most of his 12 completions (15 attempts) were of a short-yardage variety.

Other than for the touchdown pass to Tate, the Packers defense played superbly. Wilson completed only five of 10 passes for 69 yards. On the touchdown to Tate, it appeared a play-action fake helped Tate get behind cornerback Tramon Williams and safety Charles Woodson.

Running back Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks’ main offensive threat, rushed 16 times for 71 yards. Wilson bought time with his scrambling ability and was not sacked.

The Packers were shut out in the first half of only one game last season, a loss to Kansas City.
