Opening score got things started right for Packers

66-yard TD strike to Davante Adams came on third play of the game


GREEN BAY – It only took three plays, but it got the Packers rolling.

The opening drive of Sunday's 38-10 victory over the Seahawks covered 75 yards, 66 of them coming on a long touchdown pass from QB Aaron Rodgers to WR Davante Adams.

It gave the Packers a 7-0 lead just 90 seconds into the game, and it's the Chevy Drive of the Week.

The Packers opened the game with a 9-yard pass completion to WR Jordy Nelson, but WR Ty Montgomery was stuffed for no gain on second-and-1.

That brought up third-and-1, and when Adams got behind Seattle CB Jeremy Lane down the far sideline, Rodgers rolled to his right and fired a perfect pass.

It was the Packers' longest play from scrimmage this season as well as the longest catch of Adams' career.

Rodgers injured his calf on the play but proceeded to put up a season-best 150.8 passer rating anyway (18-of-23, 246 yards, three TDs), his fourth straight game above 100. Adams went on to catch four passes for 104 yards, his fourth 100-yard game this season. Adams now has nine TD receptions on the season.
