This 17-0 victory by the Green Bay Packers over the Seattle Seahawks gave the tie between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions earlier in the day a run for its money for the worst collective offensive display this weekend.

Wilson was far from his best in his first game back from the finger injury suffered back in Week 5. Wilson averaged just 4.0 passing yards per attempt after averaging 9.6 through the first five games of the season. He completed just 2-of-15 passes 10-plus yards downfield.

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends
This was one of Gerald Everett’s most productive games since joining the Seahawks last offseason (eight catches for 63 yards), but it was an underwhelming game for the majority of the offense through the air.
That includes D.K. Metcalf, who was charged with two drops on initial review. Metcalf had an ejection tacked on top of those two drops late in the game.
The weak links for Seattle in pass protection were on the interior at guard. Gabe Jackson and Damien Lewis allowed at least three pressures each and were the Seahawks’ lowest-graded offensive linemen in pass protection.
Rasheem Green finished the game with a sack and quarterback hit on initial review, but there weren’t many opportunities to get to Rodgers with how he was getting rid of the football.
Seattle’s defensive front did make it difficult for Green Bay in the run game, allowing just 0.5 rushing yards before contact per rushing attempt.
This was an impressive performance for second-year linebacker Jordyn Brooks. Per PFF’s first-run analysis, he finished with four combined stops in run defense and coverage.
Outside of a D.J. Reed slip that resulted in a big play to Valdes-Scantling, Seattle’s secondary had a solid outing.
Outside of his dud in the season opener against New Orleans, this was Rodgers’ worst performance of the season. He did enough to come away with the victory, though.
Rodgers got rid of the football in 2.5 seconds on average, and 78% of his passing yards in the game came after the catch.

Dillon wasn’t overly efficient from a yardage standpoint (3.1 yards per carry), but eight of his 21 carries resulted in first downs or touchdowns.
Wide Receivers/Tight Ends
Davante Adams dominated the production from this unit outside of a 41-yard connection between Rodgers and Marquez-Valdes Scantling down the sideline.
Adams caught seven passes for 78 yards. All other Packers’ wide receivers and tight ends combined for 91 yards.
The Packers offensive line graded much better in pass protection than run blocking as a unit. Pending review, Rodgers was pressured on less than a quarter of his dropbacks, while the Packers averaged just over 3.0 yards per run play.
Preston Smith, Kenny Clark and Rashan Gary all finished PFF’s initial review of the game with three or more pressures, aided by Wilson’s propensity to hold onto the football (3.5 second time to throw).
Gary left the game in the second half with an elbow injury.
De’Vondre Campbell played over twice as many snaps (61) as the rest of Green Bay’s linebackers combined (30). Campbell wasn’t around the ball a ton, as the first contact defender on just three plays, but he had a solid all-around performance.
It’s hard to find much fault with this unit given Wilson’s performance, especially given that they’re still without Jaire Alexander. It was a big game for Adrian Amos at safety with an interception and multiple forced incompletions.
