Packers Snap Counts: With Graham out, wide receivers fill void

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has proven he's a legitimate MVP candidate

Packer tight end Jimmy Graham suffered a broken thumb while playing against his former team on Thursday night.

Russell Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seahawks' victory.

In a key matchup in the battle for the two NFC wild-card spots, Seattle (5-5) snapped a two-game losing streak by overcoming an early 14-3 deficit.

The Packers used Lance Kendricks nearly exclusively in his place, but coach Mike McCarthy said rookie Robert Tonyan, who caught a 54-yard touchdown in the first half for his first career National Football League reception, could see his playing time increase if Graham misses significant time. Graham left the field during the first half of Green Bay's 27-24 loss to the Seahawks and didn't return. And after the Seahawks took the lead back (27-24) with just over five minutes to play, it seemed nearly certain Aaron Rodgers would add another 4th quarter game-winning drive to his resume.

Green Bay's 25th ranked run defense was tasked with stopping the NFL's leading rushing offense.

Green Bay was down four starters with CB Kevin King, S Kentrell Brice, LB Nick Perry and WR Randall Cobb all out due to injuries.
