Packers TE Jimmy Graham suffers broken thumb

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers visit Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks in a Thursday Night Football matchup on November 15.

When asked if he's concerned the talk of his future will affect the locker room, McCarthy said: "I don't think you can tune it out".

Seattle is one of only two National Football League teams (Tennessee is the other) with more rushing attempts than passing attempts this season.

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. "We talk about the focus - focus on winning games, what's in front of us".

Seattle still has not lost three straight games since the middle of the 2011 season and the Seahawks finally closed out a one-score victory after consecutive close losses to the Chargers and Rams.

Rodgers thought he was throwing to starting tight end Jimmy Graham, but Graham was out of the game at that point.

Wilson threw for 225 yards on the night but his most important pass was a 15-yard dart to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left that pushed the Seahawks past the Pack for good.

Aaron Rodgers threw a handsome, 54-yard touchdown pass to fourth-string tight end Robert Tonyan Jr. on Thursday. "I've been in this position before, so I have confidence in how we do things", McCarthy said Friday.

The ball floated right into Tonyan's hands - his first career catch coming on a highlight-reel play in a crucial game. "That's the old days", McCarthy said. "I know this is different personnel on their side of the ball than we've seen over the years, but they're still playing really well". Seattle ranks eighth at 8.0 yards per passing attempt.

With Wright missing this game, look for the Seahawks to deploy more nickel packages with Bobby Wagner and Barkevious Mingo as the feature linebackers. LB Mychal Kendricks will be able to rejoin the team in practice next week, but won't be eligible to play until Week 14 against Minnesota.
