Packers vs. Seahawks Halftime Score Update: Wilson Throws Three Picks As Packers Lead 16-0

It's been sloppy, wet and loud inside of Century Link Field as the Green Bay Packers lead the Seattle Seahawks 16-0. Aaron Rodgers has moved around a lot better compared to last week's game against Dallas, attempting 21 passes while throwing for 115 yards and a score. This game has featured six turnovers between the two teams already, so let's pray this doesn't continue in the second half.

Here is the good, bad and the ugly from the first half of today's game:

Good

Green Bay forced two key turnovers in the first quarter of the game and held the Seahawks to just three total yards (six plays, 2:22 for time of possession). The first came after Ha Ha Clinton-Dix recorded his second interception of the season after a tipped ball from Russell Wilson fell into his lap, while another came from a Doug Baldwin fumble on Seattle's first special teams return.  Clinton-Dix later picked off another pass in the second quarter, and Sam Shields intercepted him again, give Wilson three picks in the half.

The Packers have also force Seattle to commit six penalties for 30, including three on the opening drive of the game.

Bad

Green Bay had two opportunities to step on the Seahawks' throats early in this game from those two key turnovers, but elected to settle instead. Another third and short situation ended in a 40-yard kick from Mason Crosby in the second. Although nine points from field goals are better than none, you don't get that close near the end zone for those results.

Ugly

There have been six (six!) turnovers in just the first half of this game already. Wilson has thrown three picks while going just 1-for-8 passing (14 yards, a 0.0 rating), while Rodgers has thrown two of his own. The turnovers have made this game U-G-L-Y.
