Seattle will look to extend its preseason winning streak to eight games when it visits historic Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers.
Russell Wilson had two touchdown passes in the Seahawks’ 40-10 thumping of the Denver Broncos a week ago. The second-year star completed 8-of-12 passes for 127 yards for Seattle, which also defeated the San Diego Chargers in its first 2013 preseason game.
Wilson, of course, emerged as Seattle’s future during his rookie campaign last season, as the third-round pick led the Seahawks to an 11-5 record and had his squad within a play of the NFC Championship Game before a last-second Matt Bryant field goal lifted the Atlanta Falcons to victory.
Jermaine Kearse had a 107-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to go with a receiving score against Denver, while Brandon Browner returned a fumble 106 yards for a score in the triumph.
“I felt like we were doing things how we like to do them,” said Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.
The Packers are also coming off a win last week after Mason Crosby kicked three field goals helping Green Bay take a 19-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams.
Aaron Rodgers was a crisp 10-of-12 passing for 134 yards while B.J. Coleman had a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter for the Packers, who bounced back from a shutout loss to Arizona in their preseason opener. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy rushed for 40 yards on eight carries in the contest.
“As far as the overview of the game, I thought that the football team took a step forward,” said Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy. “But we obviously still have a lot to work on.”
The Packers and Seahawks have split their previous four meetings in the preseason.
