GREEN BAY–The Seattle Seahawks scored a 17-10 win at Lambeau Field on Friday night, beating the Packers on a 42-yard touchdown pass from Brady Quinn to wide receiver Stephen Williams with 8:51 to play in the game.

Williams wrestled the ball away from cornerback Loyce Means. The catch capped a five-play, 81-yard touchdown drive.

Running back Alex Green’s 31-yard run moved the Packers into Seattle territory following the Seattle score, and a pass interference penalty against Seattle on a B.J. Coleman pass that was intercepted, moved the Packers inside the Seattle 20-yard line.

Coleman found rookie tight end Jake Stoneburner with a pass that appeared as though it might score, but Stoneburner had the ball knocked from his grasp and Seattle recovered at its 13-yard line.

Seattle killed off much of the time remaining and rookie running back Christine Michael continued his dominant performance. Michael rushed for 97 yards on 11 carries, including a 43-yard touchdown run. He was the game’s No. 1 star.

The Packers are 1-2 heading into next week’s preseason finale in Kansas City.
