In a controversial end to the football game, the Seattle Seahawks scored a touchdown as time expired on a 24-yard jump ball from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate.
Packers safety M.D. Jennings also made a play on the football, but the officials ruled that Tate had possession of the football.
After several minutes, the Packers and the Seahawks finally lined up for an extra point that put the Seahawks on top 14-12.
0:00 in the 4th quarter
Before any replay ruling has been handed down, one thing is for sure, there will be intense media scrutiny on the replacement officials.
1:54 in the fourth quarter
The Packers have forced a turnover on downs when Russell Wilson's pass in the endzone fell incomplete, but the Packers may need to convert a first down to really ice the game.
Cedric Benson will be needed to run down the clock, and just as importantly, he'll need to hang onto the football.
The Seahawks face a critical fourth down after the two minute warning. They've only converted only two of nine third downs tonight, but have converted their only fourth down attempt, for what it's worth.
The game could come down to this if the Packers stop them.
5:24 in the 4th quarter
A pass interference call on Sam Shields has given the Seahawks new life.
There have been two questionable calls this drive alone against the Packers, which of course, is drawing more attention to the replacement officials.
8:27 in the 4th quarter
An interception by rookie safety Jerron McMillian has been nullified by a roughing the passer penalty on linebacker Erik Walden.
It was the Seahawks that have been hurt by penalties most of the game, but the Packers were really stung by that call.
9:24 in the 4th quarter
Following a third-and-1 play in which Aaron Rodgers attempted to scramble for the first down, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has challenged the spot of the football.
This late in the football game, there's little to lose by McCarthy challenging the call on the field. It could mean the difference between scoring a touchdown and a field goal.
9:38 in the 4th quarter
A touchdown pass by Greg Jennings is being reviewed. It appeared as if he stepped out of bounds before the ball crossed the goal line.
It looks like the Packers will have to punch the ball in from short yardage if they're going to get in the end zone.
11:21 in the 4th quarter
After forcing a punt, the Packers offense has methodically worked its way down the field.
So far in the second half, the Seattle defense has forced field goals instead of touchdowns. We'll see if that continues.
End of 3rd quarter
Big third down coming up. The Seahawks have only converted two of seven third downs so far.
1:14 in the 3rd quarter
Cedric Benson now has 12 rushes for 52 yards, and what makes it all the more impressive is it's coming against a defense that's been pretty good at stopping the run.
The Packers still haven't gotten into the end zone tonight, so the Seattle defense definitely has been but don't break so far in the second half.
3:45 in the 3rd quarter
The Packers offense appears to be hitting its stride. They're doing a good job of running a no-huddle offense, that forced the Seahawks into using a time out.
They'll feel a lot better about themselves if this drive ends in a touchdown. At the very least, it's a different Packers team than the one we saw in the first half.
6:24 in the 3rd quarter
Packers outside linebacker Nick Perry had an impressive sack for a big loss of yardage on Russell Wilson, but the Seahawks continue to shoot themselves in the foot with penalties.
The Seahawks now have 10 penalties for 85 yards on the evening, which has prevented them from any consistency on offense.
8:11 in the 3rd quarter
The Packers finally got some offense going in their first possession of the second half.
Obviously they would have preferred a touchdown rather than a field goal, but it's a step in the right direction for them.
You can bet they'll continue to look to Cedric Benson more than they did in the first half.
11:22 in the 3rd quarter
Cedric Benson has five rushes for 32 yards so far in the second half. Obviously quite a difference from the first half.
The stat sheet may say Aaron Rodgers has 87 yards passing in the first half, but because of the eight sacks, the Packers have only gained 47 yards on passing plays.
On the other hand, the Seahawks have 147 total yards of offense in the first half, roughly equal between the running game (78) and the passing (69), the sign of a balanced offense.
It's pretty much been an ugly football game from all angles. Credit to the Seahawks. Through halftime, they've made one more play on offense than the Packers, and it was a big one, the touchdown from Wilson to Tate.
But with six penalties on both teams and eight sacks given up by the Packers, neither offense has done much of anything.
2:00 in the 2nd quarter
The Packers offensive line deserves their fair share of the blame, but Aaron Rodgers does too.
Rodgers has to get rid of the football. With eight sacks, there's plenty of blame to pass around.
The way the Packers are playing, they're lucky to only be down by seven points.
3:55 in the 2nd quarter
The Seahawks now have their seventh sack and it's not even halftime. On the most recent sack, Chris Clemons schooled Packers left tackle Marshall Newhouse.
It's looking ugly for the Packers offensive line, and as I write, the Seahawks now have their eight sack.
6:22 in the 2nd quarter
Russell Wilson came through in the clutch with his 41-yard touchdown to Golden Tate. Credit the Seahawks offensive line for giving him all the time he needed.
The Packers are going to need a better pass rush than they displayed on that particular play.
9:24 in the 2nd quarter
The Packers were temporarily buoyed by a 20-yard run by Randall Cobb, but the fifth sack on Aaron Rodgers has forced Green Bay to punt once again.
Right tackle Bryan Bulaga is struggling in pass protection, either getting beat or getting called for holding like he was on the most recent third-down play.
11:38 in the 2nd quarter
There's been quite the inequity in play selection so far for the Packers.
Cedric Benson only has one carry so far, while quarterback Aaron Rodgers has attempted nine passes, been sacked four times and took off on a scramble once.
If the Packers want to start moving the ball, they're going to have to have at least a modicum on success on the ground.
13:14 in the 2nd quarter
Credit the Seahawks secondary for Seattle's fourth sack of the game. The coverage was good downfield, and Rodgers didn't have anywhere to go.
It didn't help the Packers' cause that Greg Jennings tried to work his way to the sideline on a second-down reception. Had he just put his shoulder down and turned upfield right away, he probably would have gotten a first down.
0:15 in the 1st quarter
Make that 0-3 for the Seahawks on first down.
Marshawn Lynch is doing his job for the most part. At some point, Russell Wilson is going to have to make a big play.
Russell Wilson is doing a good job protecting the football and not turning it over, but that's not putting points on the scoreboard.
1:31 in the 1st quarter
The Seahawks are 0-2 on third downs so far. If they want to get things clicking on offense, they'll need to remedy that situation.
Their defense has been fine. It's their offense that needs to pick up the slack.
2:09 in the 1st quarter
Bruce Irvin has been the star of the game so far. With is second sack of the game, the Packers have third-and-long and can't covert.
Irvin did well, but it can be argued that Rodgers held onto the ball too long. With three sacks total, the Seahawks are stopping the Packers' pass game cold.
