Thomas Rawls is a game-time decision for Seahawks in Week 1

Tackle Brian Bulaga is uncertain to play, and with the running game lacking, the newly-minted "Death Row" defensive line will have its opportunities. A taunting penalty on WR Randall Cobb wiped out his own 14-yard reception, and a delay of game set up long yardage.

Alex Smith threw two long touchdown passes and rookie Kareem Hunt, after fumbling on his first National Football League carry, scored three times for the visiting Chiefs.

It was Rodgers' first interception since November 13, 2016, against the Tennessee Titans, a span of 252 attempts in the regular season. They also blew a home game to Arizona. But Lacy will need to produce when his number is called as running back depth is not an issue for Seattle.

Johnson had over 2,000 all-purpose yards for Arizona last season.

Matthews did just that during the playoffs, as he had a sack/fumble on the New York Giants' Eli Manning during the fourth quarter of the Packers' blowout NFC wild card win, then pressured Dallas' Dak Prescott on a critical third-and-3 late in the fourth quarter of the Packers' last-second NFC divisional playoff win the following week. That moved him one ahead of Ferguson. He started 26 of 29 games over the past two years.

"I'm disappointed that the play had such a magnitude on the game". Seattle signed him in March to a one-year, prove-it contract.

Seattle vs. Green Bay is probably the most hard game to pick on the Week 1 schedule. Rather than acquire a go-to guy in the offseason, they made a decision to stick with Ty Montgomery. The Seahawks lost starting cornerback Jeremy Lane to an ejection in the first quarter.

Splitting carries: Seattle would like to see Thomas Rawls be the primary ball carrier and Eddie Lacy as a complement. Avril left the field on that series with a shoulder injury and was announced as questionable to return.

The Packers won the toss and deferred to the second half.

Rodgers' regular-season streak of passes without an interception ended at a career-high 251.

All of which would have been enough to grab the attention but behind him everyone, it seemed, wanted their time on centre stage. They were quick whenever they went out, which is what we expected. "The weather was obviously incredibly tricky for us all".

Seattle might have more talent than anyone in the NFC, which is why they had the best Las Vegas Super Bowl odds of anyone in the conference for much of the offseason.

After leading the league in scoring defense from 2013-2015, the Seahawks finished third in that category past year. On offense, free agent tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks spice up a potent passing attack. Darby remained on the ground for several minutes as medical staff attended to him.

Carroll is expecting that Thomas will pick up where he left off before he was injured against Carolina. He accounted for 69 of the team's 75 total yards, finishing it off with a beautifully placed pass to Jordy Nelson in the middle of the field for a 32-yard touchdown.

The Pittsburgh Steelers started their season with a bang.

"We'll end up talking before the game".

The season got going Thursday night when Kansas City stunned New England 42-27 in the season opener.

The Titans opened the game against the Raiders with Ryan Succop attempting an onside kick that was recovered by Raiders safety Shalom Luani. Carroll is 4-4 in season openers with Seattle.

That put Oakland and their explosive offense with Derek Carr and Marshawn Lynch at midfield. Most importantly, his game could mean a lot down the road for home field advantage in the playoffs. Wilson threw incomplete to the end zone twice, and K Blair Walsh was good from 33 yards out on the final play of the half.

Seattle was flagged for 12 men on the play as the ball snapped with linebacker Terrence Garvin a step away from getting to the sideline. During the video, players asked for unity, equality and cooperation during a time of division in our country. Yep, a classic matchup in Week 1. "It's time to go win games", coach Mike McCarthy said. "I think us players got to take ownership of it and play better and finish this thing off".
