2. DA­MAR­I­OUS RAN­DALL’S IN­TER­CEP­TION VS. SEAT­TLE NEAR GOAL LINE

Packer Plus - - Notebook -

Pack­ers 38, Sea­hawks 10, Dec. 11 at Lam­beau Field It was Green Bay’s most im­pres­sive vic­tory of the reg­u­lar sea­son, a game in which the de­fense dom­i­nated with a mind-bog­gling five in­ter­cep­tions of Wil­son — a ca­reer worst for the star QB — and lim­ited the po­tent Sea­hawks of­fense to a sin­gle touch­down and field goal. Co­or­di­na­tor Dom Ca­pers’ ma­ligned unit had been gashed in the pre­vi­ous month, yield­ing 33 points in At­lanta, 31 to In­di­anapo­lis, 47 in Ten­nessee, and 42 in Wash­ing­ton. Ran­dall made the high­light reels with his in­ter­cep­tion near the goal line in the fi­nal 30 sec­onds of the first half with Green Bay lead­ing, 21-3. Wil­son was at­tempt­ing to make a big play to close that gap be­fore in­ter­mis­sion. He scram­bled out of the pocket and launched a 40-yard pass to a seem­ingly open Baldwin at the 3-yard line. Ran­dall came streak­ing in and leapt to grab the football at the 4. His mo­men­tum car­ried him into the end zone, and he re­turned the ball to the Pack­ers’ 22-yard line to squash the drive. It was the first of two in­ter­cep­tions for Ran­dall in the game.
