Michael Bennett forces safety, Seahawks break game open

Although the Seahawks were up 20-10 in the third quarter, the Packers it seemed had plenty of time to get back in the game. But with Green Bay pinned deep in its own territory, Michael Bennett came up with a big play that gave Seattle even more breathing room.

With Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga leaving the game with a knee injury in the first half, backup Derek Sherrod had his hands full with Bennett, who forced a sack and fumble of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Sherrod recovered the ball in the end zone and was tackled by Seahawks defensive tackle Tony McDaniel for a safety with 4:42 left in the third quarter.

The ensuing free kick set up a nine-play, 53-yard drive by the Seahawks that was capped off by a 3-yard run by Marshawn Lynch that gave Seattle a 29-10 lead early in the fourth quarter.
