Jimmy Graham (thumb) expected to miss over a month for Green Bay

The Seahawks took the lead three plays later on Russell Wilson's touchdown pass to Ed Dickson.

Wright had undergone arthroscopic surgery over the summer and sat out the first six games of the season before easing back into play.

Mike McCarthy attempted to explain two questionable decisions he made late in the Green Bay Packers' 27-24 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Thursday night.

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.

That run Wilson referenced from 2015 was based largely on a passing offense that erupted in the final two months of the season. "To be honest, I thought it was Jimmy".

"I don't have the exact extent of the injury, so I'm sure he'll answer that next week for you", McCarthy said. The Packers more than doubled the Seahawks offensive production in the first quarter and they did it while possessing the ball less.

That was Green Bay's fourth NFC Championship Game appearance under McCarthy, who led the 2010 team to the Super Bowl XLV title and eight consecutive playoff berths before missing the postseason previous year, when Rodgers missed nine-plus games with a broken right collarbone. With just two touchdowns so far this year, Graham perhaps hasn't had quite the impact in the end zone as in 2017, when he had 10 scores with Seattle.

The Green Bay Packers' 13th-year head coach acknowledged he is aware that the team's 4-5-1 record has led to questions about his future.

"Of course there's hope". His absence created a large v0id to fill for the Packers as it should see a larger dependency on Pro Bowl wide receiver DaVante Adams along with the other wide receivers in Marquez Valdes-Scantling along with Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb when he returns from injury. Rodgers was sacked five times, four of those in the second half.

NFL insider Mike Silver penned a column for NFL.com in which he said there's a "growing sense" that McCarthy will be replaced. "Frustrating obviously, I can do that a hundred times and probably not do that again".

"I have faith in this team so I'm going to be an aggressive caller and go for it and say that we'll get it, but at the same time, you have to be realistic and I agree with coaches call 100 percent put it back on the defense", Adams said.
