The defending champion Seahawks kicked off the 2014 NFL season against the Packers just like they ended the 2013 season in the Super Bowl -- with a dominant win. Seattle trounced Green Bay 36-16 at CenturyLink Field, as Russell Wilson went 19/28 for 191 yards and two touchdowns while Marshawn Lynch tore through the Green Bay defense, gaining 110 yards on 20 carries for two touchdowns. Seattle's defense didn't let Aaron Rodgers get much going, especially in the second half, and the Seahawks cruised to a 1-0 start on their quest to repeat their championship this year.
