The Green Bay Packers jumped out to a 21-12 lead early in the 3rd quarter, then Seattle took over, dominating play the rest of the way in a 34-14 win at Qwest Field.
Shaun Alexander rushed 40 times for 201 yards to lead the Seahawks to the win. Seattle committed five turnovers, including four in the first half, but the Packers failed to take advantage. That generosity allowed the Seahawks to stay close in the first half, trialing just 14-12 at halftime.
Matt Hasselbeck was intercepted three times in the first half and his fumble was returned by rookie Abdul Hodge 29 yards for a touchdown. But Hasselbeck rebounded to throw three touchdown passes in the second half and shake off the rust that was evident after missing a month of play with a knee injury.
Seattle improved to 7-4 with the win, while the Packers fell to 4-7, dropping them into a tie for the 12th best record among the 16 teams in the NFC.
The Packers take the day off today. They'll return to practice Wednesday and start preparing for Sunday's home game against the New York Jets.
