Seahawks trounce Packers

The Seattle Seahawks trounced the Green Bay Packers, 36-16, to open the NFL season.

The Super Bowl champions were led by running back Marshawn Lynch's 110 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Wide receiver Percy Harvin combined for 100 receiving and rushing yards.

"We'll always find something that we can do better," said Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner, who had 14 tackles. "That's why we're so good."

Quarterback Russell Wilson delivered a 33-yard touchdown pass to Ricardo Lockette, completing 19 of 28 passes for 191 yards.

Lynch rushed for 1,257 yards and 12 touchdowns last season and scored two touchdowns against the Packers.

"Obviously, we were the more physical team today, offensively and defensively," Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said. "I saw supposedly some of the best players in the league not want to tackle Marshawn Lynch. Of course, nobody is going to say nothing about that, but I seen a lot of guys whiff on tackles that should have been 2-yard gains, and they're supposed to be the best."
