Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers

  1. At home on Sunday night, the Seahawks crushed the Panthers, 40-7, piling up a 534-271 advantage in total yards and a 29-14 edge in first downs. Seattle took control from the outset, when Derek Anderson -- starting in place of Cam Newton, who was benched for the first series -- was intercepted on the game's opening snap. The Seahawks led 10-0 after one quarter and 23-7 at halftime, as Thomas Rawls rushed for 103 yards and two TDs in the first half. Tyler Lockett ran 75 yards for a third-quarter TD, Russell Wilson (277 yards, 92.0 rating) threw a one-yard TD pass to Jimmy Graham, and Steven Hauschka booted four field goals for the winners.
  2. Playing in a steady snow at Lambeau Field, the Packers defeated the Texans, 21-13, winning their second straight game after dropping four straight. Beginning late in the third quarter with the game tied, 7-7, Aaron Rodgers (209 yards, two TD passes) led touchdown drives of 98 and 89 yards to give Green Bay a 21-7 lead. The Texans scored a TD on their ensuing possession, but were unable to recover the ensuing onside kickoff. Jordy Nelson had eight catches for 118 yards and a score; on the Packers' two second-half TD drives, Nelson had three critical catches -- each one covering 20-plus yards -- including a 32-yard touchdown.
  3. Green Bay won the teams' last meeting, 27-17 at Lambeau Field on September 20, 2015. The Seahawks won the previous three games between the teams, including a 28-22 overtime thriller in the 2014 NFC Championship game. The Packers have won six straight games over Seattle at Lambeau Field; the Seahawks' last win in Titletown came on November 1, 1999, 27-7.
  4. In 12 games this season, Russell Wilson has only 12 TD passes, tied for 24th in the NFL; a year ago, Wilson had 24 touchdown passes in his last seven regular-season games. Wilson has not thrown a TD pass all season in the first or third quarters, and his six TD passes on the road have come in only two games -- three each at the NY Jets and at New England.
  5. Aaron Rodgers is working on the longest streak of his career of consecutive games with a TD pass, at 21. He has thrown multiple touchdown passes in seven straight games for the first time since 2012. Since Week 7, he tops the NFL in passing yards (1904) and TD passes (17).
  6. Rodgers (103.5) and Wilson (100.3) are the only two qualifiers in history with career passer ratings of 100 or better; they also rank 1-2 in career touchdown-interception ratio (Rodgers 3.97, Wilson 3.03). In their head-to-head matchups (including postseason), neither has been great. Wilson has won three of the four games, but has only an 80.6 rating (seven TD, five interceptions). Rodgers has an 83.6 rating in the four games (four touchdowns, three interceptions).

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Two weeks ago, when the Green Bay Packers were scuffling along at 4-6, quarterback Aaron Rodgers made a bold proclamation.

"I feel like we can run the table," Rodgers said on Nov. 23.

With victories over Philadelphia and Houston the past two weeks, the Packers are one-third of the way to that target. Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field (4:25 p.m. ET, FOX) looms as by far the biggest barrier.

Green Bay (6-6) remains two games behind Detroit in the NFC North but has gotten back into the wild-card chase, where it trails Tampa Bay (7-5) by one game.

"I think there's a lot of confidence in the locker room," Rodgers said Wednesday. "I think guys really believe that this team has the potential to make a run. We've shown it the last two weeks -- a tough road win and then holding serve at home.

"But, obviously, this is a little bigger game with the opponent. As every game progresses, there's more on the line for us to play for. So I'm confident in the guys that we're up to the challenge."

With Dallas (11-1) running away in the NFC race for home-field advantage, Seattle (8-3-1) is battling Detroit (8-4) for a first-round bye. The Seahawks have won four of their last five games, including a blowout of Carolina on Sunday night in which Russell Wilson threw for 277 yards and Thomas Rawls ran for 106 of the team's 240 rushing yards.

While the Seahawks appear to be surging, they did suffer a significant loss when safety Earl Thomas sustained a broken leg against the Panthers. Steven Terrell is expected to replace Thomas.

The Seahawks are still confident that the beat will go on for a defense that is trying to lead the NFL in points allowed for the fifth consecutive season, which would be unprecedented in the Super Bowl era.

"A team that's not great, they try to have everyone lift their play and do more than what they're supposed to do," said Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, who returned last week after missing five games with a knee injury. "When you've got people behind them, you expect them to do their job. We expect whoever plays where Earl is, they're going to do their job.

"Nobody's going to try to do more than what they're supposed to do, and that's how you play great defense."

The Packers no doubt will test Thomas' replacement, but within reason.

"The way he plays the position is extraordinary," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "He has tremendous range, anticipation and he's a big part of their leadership of the football team.

"You have to look at how the new guy's going to fit in, but we're not going to drop back and throw 50-yard post routes all day because they've got a new free safety. I don't think that's practical."

Injuries will be a major storyline for the Packers, too. Starting outside linebacker Nick Perry, the team's leader with eight sacks, has been ruled out with an injured left hand.

Fellow starter Clay Matthews, to use McCarthy's words, was "extremely limited" against the Texans with an injured shoulder. Starting inside linebackers Jake Ryan (ankle), who returned last week from a two-game absence, and Blake Martinez (knee), who has missed the past two games, are ailing, too.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is battling a hamstring injury -- not particularly good news for the Packers, considering Seattle ranks fourth in the league with 31 sacks.

After a relatively slow start to the season, Rodgers is heating up in the nick of time. In the past seven games, he leads the NFL in touchdown passes and 100-plus rating games.

"We've watched him all year," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "He's being what he is. He's an extraordinary football player, a great leader, an amazing competitor, such a creative player.

"This isn't a new guy to me. We played him back when he was in college a lot. Feel very familiar with him and have watched his career. If you want to break up this season by what he did early and what he did late, he's a great football player and, because of that, he's going to wind up showing you that if you watch him enough."
