Wilson throws 5 picks, Seahawks routed by Packers, 38-10

SEATTLE -- Russell Wilson threw five interceptions in a game for the first time in his career as the Green Bay Packers demolished the Seattle Seahawks 38-10.

It's the first time in Wilson's five-year career he has thrown that many picks in a game. It's also the first time the Seahawks have lost a game by more than 10 points with Wilson at the helm.

Aaron Rodgers looked magnificent for the Packers, going 18 for 23 for 246 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He was pulled in the fourth quarter with the Packers up 28-3 after he was noticeably limping.

Wilson, who came into the game with the best December quarterback rating since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, was uncharacteristically mortal. He went 22 for 39 for 240 yards with one touchdown and those five picks. He finished the day with a rating of 43.7 (out of 158.3).

The interceptions were not all his fault. A couple of those picked-off passes bounced off the hands of his receivers including the normally sure-handed Doug Baldwin.

Running back Thomas Rawls had another good game with 67 yards on 12 carries. But with Seattle trailing most of the game, he was little used in the second half.
