The Seahawks' offense took the field with 4:11 remaining in the game, and there was little doubt what head coach Pete Carroll desired his unit to accomplish while nursing a three-point lead.
But the Packers watched in vain as running back Mike Davis and quarterback Russell Wilson totaled 13 yards on the first two plays of the drive for a first down, forcing Green Bay to call its final timeout. Davis then sealed the 27-24 victory with two rushes for 11 yards and another first down, with Wilson's three straight kneel downs ending the game.
"We get the ball back with like, whatever, 4:15 or something, and then we run the clock out," Carroll told reporters after the game. "That's as good as you can do. I love it."
Seattle pounded out 173 yards rushing and a touchdown on 35 attempts, marking the seventh consecutive game the team has rushed for at least 150 yards.
Carson's 83 yards and a touchdown led the way against the Packers; Penny chipped in with 46 yards; and Davis came in to seal it with 15 of his 26 yards rushing coming on the final possession.
"Another good night running the football, 170-something, that's just the consistency that's continued to be there," Carroll said. "That's those guys up front. All three runners ran really well tonight. They all had good numbers and it was a committee going in, but they did a great job. I'm really proud of them."
After starting the season 0-2, the Seahawks have gone 5-3 behind a balanced offensive attack armed with the league's top rushing attack.
