Maxwell says he likes the attention and had a message for opposing quarterbacks on ESPN 710 in Seattle Thursday: "Keep coming at me."'s NFL Week 2 Coverage

Seattle's defense held Rodgers to 189 passing yards, the first time he failed to throw for more than 200 yards since Week 13 of the 2012 season.

Maxwell had one interception and two passes defended against Green Bay.
