Big plays boost Seahawks over Pack


The Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Christine Michael ran for 97 yards on 11 carries and Stephen Williams snatched a ball away from cornerback Loyce Means in the end zone for a 42-yard touchdown catch and the go-ahead score in the Seattle Seahawks’ 17-10 preseason victory over the Green Bay Packers Friday night.

Michael had a 43-yard touchdown run in the third quarter for the Seahawks (3-0), who stayed unbeaten but didn’t look like the team that steamrolled over Denver and San Diego the previous two weeks.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, returning to the state where he turned into a college star at Wisconsin, finished 11 of 17 for 126 yards but threw two interception, including a pass tipped by two defenders that landed in the opportunistic hands of Casey Hayward.

Aaron Rodgers looked fine in his only series for Green Bay (1-2). He was 4 of 7 for 41 yards, with a 22-yard connection to tight end Jermichael Finley.
