RODGERS HITS JONES FOR 29-YARD TD
Catching the Seahawks offside, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers took advantage of the free play like he so often does. WR James Jones got open on a post route against Seahawks CB Richard Sherman, and Rodgers fired a perfect strike down the middle for a touchdown on the game’s opening drive. It would end up being Jones’ only reception of the night, but it was his third TD catch in two games.
RODGERS-TO-RODGERS FOR EIGHT POINTS
In the fourth quarter with the Packers trailing, 17-16, Rodgers capped an impressive 10-play, 80-yard drive with a 5-yard TD pass to TE Richard Rodgers, followed by a two-point pass to the same teammate. The Packers led by seven, and led for good.
ELLIOTT TAKES IT AWAY
Backup outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott made the defensive play of the game midway through the fourth quarter with a one-handed interception of a Seahawks QB Russell Wilson pass intended for RB Marshawn Lynch. The turnover set up a Mason Crosby field goal for the game’s final points, as Crosby became the Packers’ all-time leading scorer. Elliott then forced a fumble on Seattle’s final drive that teammate Micah Hyde recovered, to close out the win.
