GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers moved right out of the pocket, found Davante Adams
#1
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers moved right out of the pocket, found Davante Adams running down the right sideline and tossed a perfect pass into his receivers hands.Adams cut left as his defender slipped before racing to the end zone for a tone-setting touchdown on the opening drive of a decisive 38-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. On that same play, Rodgers hurt his right calf .Rodgers finished with 246 yards and three scores before leaving early in the fourth quarter with his team up by 25. Dont think for one minute that Rodgers plans to miss any time.The Packers (7-6) won their third straight game to keep their playoff hopes alive.Thats football. You deal with injuries, you know . Id like to talk about the win, youre talking about my injuries, Rodgers told reporters. Im not missing games, so ... weve won three in a row.The Packers are two games back of first-place Detroit in the NFC North, but play division opponents in the last three weeks of the season.Rodgers, who is already playing with a sore left hamstring, finished 18 of 23. He was sacked just once, an impressive accomplishment for a Packers offensive line against a formidable defense for Seattle (8-4-1).Aarons a great player. Frankly, he spoils us all, coach Mike McCarthy said.Green Bay gained 330 yards in Seattles first game without former All-Pro safety Earl Thomas, who is out for the season with a broken leg.The Packers defense flustered Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, who threw a career-high five interceptions.Obviously, we cant turn the ball over and I put that on me. That game was on me, Wilson said.He finished 22 of 39 for 240 yards and a touchdown. Two interceptions came off passes that deflected off receivers hands, including one that caromed off Doug Baldwins helmet to cornerback Damarious Randall.It was a stunning turn for Seattle a week after blowing out Carolina 40-7. The Seahawks missed out on a chance to clinch the NFC West following Arizonas loss to Miami earlier Sunday.This is such a rare occurrence for our team, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. Its just something at this time we have to push behind us and get going.DEFENSE RESTSMost of the focus about defense going into the game was about Seattles league-best unit, but the Seahawks gave up a season high points.The Packers dominated, mixing in a few blitzes and getting effective pressure on Wilson most of the game against a shaky offensive line. It was an impressive showing without starting linebackers Nick Perry (hand) and Blake Martinez (knee). Outside linebacker Clay Matthews (shoulder) was limited mainly to passing downs.OUT IN FRONTGreen Bay had a 21-3 lead at halftime, reminiscent of the way the Packers built big leads on opponents in recent dominant seasons. Theyve scored first each time in their three-game win streak.Obviously it makes a difference. It means were being successful, were scoring points, receiver Jordy Nelson said. We saw what happens when our defense can play with a lead.The Packers look nothing like the team that suffered back-to-back blowout losses at Tennessee and Washington a few weeks ago.WRIGHT WRONGSeattle linebacker K.J. Wright slipped on consecutive plays in the second quarter, and the Packers took advantage each time. He was covering Ty Montgomery in the flat on a pass that turned into a 24-yard gain to the Seattle 9. He slipped again on the next play trailing Nelson across the end zone, leaving the receiver open for a touchdown pass and a 21-3 lead with 5:15 left in the first half.We had the right cleats on, it was just terrible, defensive lineman Cliff Avril said about the footing. He said it got worse as the game progressed.The field was covered by a tarp until about 90 minutes before the game. By that time, the snow had mainly subsided in Green Bay.RECORDRodgers threw two touchdown passes to Nelson. They have connected on 57 TD passes overall, tying Hall of Famer Brett Favre and Antonio Freeman for the most touchdown passes from a quarterback to a receiver in franchise history.INJURY REPORTTE Jared Cook left the game with a chest injury following an incompletion deep down the left sideline with 1:55 left in the second quarter.UP NEXTSeahawks: Have a quick turnaround with a Thursday night home game against the Los Angeles Rams.Packers: Begin their season-ending stretch of three straight NFC North games with a trip to Chicago on Dec. 18 to play the Bears.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL .

The ability to adapt quickly to unfamiliar conditions was crucial to New Zealands victory in the first Test over Zimbabwe, according to coach Mike Hesson. He praised Neil Wagner and BJ Watling for assessing the Bulawayo surface, which did not offer much pace or bounce but grew abrasive as the game went on, and working out how to succeed on it.Wagners career-best 6 for 41 was headlined by his short-ball barrage, an unusual sight at Queens, where most seamers stick to simple plans and wait for a mistake. But Wagner bent his back and attacked Zimbabwes line-up in the first innings and the early parts of the second, before adjusting his strategy and searching for reverse-swing as the ball aged.Although his second-innings returns were a third of his first innings, it showed his dual use as a wicket-taker, with both new and old ball, something that has come with being more certain of his game.When he came up three or four years ago he was excited and keen to make an impression. He probably didnt stick to his gameplan for too long but hes a lot more experienced now and hes certainly got the confidence of the captain, Hesson said. Hes able to change his game, as we saw. He can swing the new ball if hes given it. He can certainly reverse the old one and we know he can bowl bumpers. Especially on unresponsive surfaces, hes a good bowler.Equally good but less celebrated was Watling, whose century did not get the same attention as Tom Lathams or Ross Taylors, perhaps because it came after theirs. Watlings was the fastest of the three hundreds and ensured the game did not drift at a time when Zimbabwes wearing bowlers were focused on containing. Watling tired them out even more, pierced the gaps and rotated strike with intent.He is incredibly perceptive. He is one of the few players that can adapt technique mid-game, Hesson said.ddddddddddddHe makes subtle changes to his grip. He is a very talented and very hard-working cricketer.Some conversations around the match spoke of Watling being the best wicket-keeper batsman in Test cricket at the moment, a label Hesson would not mind endorsing. His keeping in very tough conditions, in the subcontinent, in England, has been exceptional for us. He often bats with the tail and he has an ability to eke out as many runs as possible. Were not going to trade him for anyone, Hesson said.Overall, Hesson assessed New Zealands performance as very thorough, with both batsmen and bowlers executing the patience plan as intended. We talked about playing the long game. We did that. We also showed how important the new ball was. We can be a little bit impatient with the ball at times but I am clutching to find some work-ons. Before hand, we said 20 wickets would be tough to take so were pleased that we did it.New Zealand will have Monday off before spending a night at Heath Streaks farm outside Bulawayo and will then return to training on Thursday in preparation for the second Test which starts on Saturday. Doubtless, they will be eyeing a clean sweep in Zimbabwe before moving on to South Africa, where they will face a tougher challenge in their bid to keep climbing the rankings.These two series are a chance for us as a group to gain some of the ground that we lost a few months ago against Australia, Hesson said. We had gone eight series without a loss before we faced them at home and away. Before that, we had gained a lot of ground and then we lost some. ' ' '
