UNDATED - The Green Bay Packers could be a lot more than an offensive juggernaut this season.
The Packers gave up no touchdowns and turned a big defensive play into a score to earn a 17-9 win over the Seahawks. Seattle had to settle for three field goals and finished with just 225 net yards, with Russell Wilson completing 14 of 27 passes for 158 yards.
The game turned on a defensive play early in the second half. The Seahawks were leading 3-0 when defensive lineman Mike Daniels stripped Wilson of the football to set up Ty Montgomery's six-yard TD run on the next play.
Montgomery had a team-high 54 yards rushing for the Packers.
Aaron Rodgers was 28 of 42 for 311 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson to make it an eight-point game late in the third quarter.
The Packers possessed the ball for 39 minutes, picked up 370 total yards and had a 26-12 edge over Seattle in first downs.
