Russell Wilson throws INT, but Seahawks make goal-line stand

The Seahawks’ first offensive possession after Sherman’s interception did not last long as Russell Wilson threw an interception on third-and-7 from the Seattle 23. The pass was intended for Jermaine Kearse, but it was tipped into the air and picked off by free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.  (Watch video of Wilson’s interception here)

But the Seahawks’ defense toughened up, stopping the Packers twice from the 1-yard line and ultimately forcing the Packers to settle for an 18-yard field goal by Mason Crosby with 8:07 to go in the first quarter. A key moment came on the interception, when the Packers were penalized were penalized for taunting at the end of Dix’s interception return. Instead of having the ball at the 4-yard line, the Packers started at the Seattle 19.
