Football is often a game of numbers, and yesterday's 27-17 victory by the Green Bay Packers is no exception. After looking through statistics and notes, we can put together important numerical nuggets from the game.
Here are a few of the key numbers that stood out from Green Bay's victory in Week 2:
Packers coach Mike McCarthy is now .500 against the Seahawks for his career, posting a 4-4 record. Meanwhile, Russell Wilson lost his first game to the Packers and had his career record fall to 3-1. The Packers are now two games up on the Seahawks in the all-time series between the two teams, 9-7.
On Seattle's first drive of the second half, Russell Wilson threw for 60 yards and accounted for 76 of the Seahawks' 80 yards. A 5-yard touchdown pass from Wilson to Fred Jackson ended the drive. He had only 62 yards passing in the first half.
Mason Crosby's 21-yard field goal helped him surpass Ryan Longwell as the Packers all-time leading scorer with a record 1,057 points.
Although the Packers defense played pretty well throughout the night, they struggled against Wilson on the ground in the second half, who ran for 65 yards. As a team, they allowed 77 yards on the ground down the stretch.
That's how many sacks Seattle's Cliff Avril had on Sunday. Entering the game, Avril recorded a sack in each of his last five games against the Packers.
Aaron Rodgers has now attempted 545 consecutive passes at home without throwing an interception. The last time he threw a pick at home was Dec. 2, 2012, almost three years ago.
The Packers have won their last 10 games at home with Rodgers under center. During that stretch, Rodgers has completed 210-of-308 passes for 2,899 yards to go with 30 touchdowns and zero interceptions. His passer rating is also a ridiculous 130.5 over those 10 games.
Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham was held in check by the Packers secondary all night. The Pro Bowl tight end only caught one pass for 11 yards and was only targeted twice by Wilson. Last night was only the third time since Oct. 2012 Graham saw two targets in a game.
This number was pretty easy, isn't it? Jayrone Elliott created two turnovers last night for the Packers. The first was a fantastic interception he made with one hand, while the other was a game-sealing fumble he created off Fred Jackson. A fantastic game for Elliott.
