Green Bay's Aaron Jones leads the National Football League in yards per carry, while Seattle has the No. 1 rushing offense and last week rushed for 273 yards against the Rams without starting running back Chris Carson.
Green Bay desperately wants to avoid missing the playoffs for consecutive seasons and Rodgers wants as many chances as possible at another Super Bowl. We knew what was coming. "We have confidence in Robert".
One of those moments could have come had McCarthy made a decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 from his own 33-yard line with 4:20 left against the Seahawks. The loss to the Seahawks left the Packers at 0-5 on the road this season and trailing the division-leading Chicago Bears (6-3) and the Vikings (5-3-1), and while a seemingly softer portion of the schedule follows after the game in Minnesota, a loss to the Vikings could render the final five games nearly moot.
"We've been through so much throughout this season it was time to get over the hump", Wagner said. Very frustrating and it's tough. But Seattle finally saw the promise of rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny last week when he rushed for 108 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown.

"He's been awesome and he did everything he could to get back", Carroll explained. Still, there might have been something therapeutic about just yelling at each other. "I can tell you, this isn't fun". "This is an important, obviously, six-game stretch left". So when Chris Carson turned the ball over on Seattle's first play, I'm sure many 12s hung their heads.
McCarthy said Friday that he still felt it was a "solid decision" to punt in that situation, and that his decision not to challenge a 34-yard Russell Wilson-to-Tyler Lockett completion that set up the go-ahead touchdown was based on not having a clear replay to look at in the coaches' booth.
Needing only two yards from their own 33-yard line, McCarthy went the conservative route and sent out the punting team.
