Rodgers completed 28 of 42 passes, which led to 311 yards. While Rodgers threw an interception during the first quarter, his pass to Jordy Nelson was the only touchdown pass he threw during the game. This occurred after the Seahawks were caught with too many men on the field.

Earlier in the game Seahawks cornerback, Jeremy Lane was called back after he caught an interception he ran into the end zone. The reason was that there were two penalties called on the field. Lane was on his way into the end zone when he got tangled up with Davante Adams. Referees called the penalties because they believed that Lane had thrown a punch. The replay of the play later showed that he didn't. With the poor performance of the team in the first half, someone like Jeremy Laclin might just be what they need.

A costly lapse in judgment

USA Today reported that the lesson from Aaron Rodgers is that when another team makes a mistake, he will capitalize it.

Late in the third quarter, a penalty was called on Seattle after the Seahawks were caught with too many men on the field. Linebacker Terence Garvin made the costly mistake, and Rodgers came back on a third down and two yards to throw a 32-yard pass to Jordy Nelson. As is classic Rodgers, Nelson was lined up in the slot to his right facing Bobby Wagner. Rodgers then threw the deep pass to Nelson and hit him in the numbers while Nelson was standing at the goal line.

The Packers new look

ESPN said that the Packers unveiled their opening credits with a 90s sitcom style. Although the opening credits don't contain someone famous like Steve Urkel or any of the other stars popular from 90s sitcoms, it does have the same look and feel. The release of the video came on Instagram Sunday morning. It comes with a jazzy theme song and freezes frame introductions of the main characters. The new opening credits may tie back into the success of the team in the 1990s.
