Perhaps the player (or difference maker) of the game on offense was James Starks. Eddie Lacy went down. Starks was the only active running back other than John Kuhn.
He ran for 95 yards on 20 carries including a 35 yard scamper that happened at a most critical time of the game. He also caught four dump offs for 11 yards.
If the Packers had chosen not to run the ball, I am certain the outcome of the game would have been different. Kudos to the coaching staff for sticking to their running game and keeping Seahawk linemen honest and slowing their rush.
Randall Cobb is starting to look like the Randall of old. He caught 8 passes for 116 yards.Ty Montgomery had his best game offensively. James Jones and Richard Rodgers caught TD passes.
This was a total team effort from players and coaches. Well done.
Quote of the week:
"“Fumble! Recovered by the #Packers! And there! Is! Your! DAGGER!,” @waynelarrivee shouts on the radio."
This was a great Packers victory. The Packers are 2-0 and the Seahawks are 0-2. Packers win the head-to-head match up so in reality, the Packers are three games up on the Seahawks for home field advantage.
The Packers are off to their best start in years, giving their coach, Mike McCarthy the fast start for which he was looking.
Check out the highlights from the game.
