Packers fired special teams coach Shawn Slocum in offseason and promoted assistant Ron Zook. … Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is 3-0 in career vs. Packers, including playoffs. … Wilson played final season of college eligibility at Wisconsin in 2011, where he holds career completion percentage record (73 percent). … TE Jimmy Graham leads tight ends in catches (361) and yards (4,447) since 2011, is tied for first in TDs (47). … Safety Earl Thomas is only NFL player with at least 400 tackles, 16 interceptions and eight forced fumbles since 2010. … Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw for 237 yards and TD in 48-10 win on Dec. 27, 2009, teams’ last regular-season meeting at Lambeau Field. … Rodgers has not thrown interception at home since Dec. 2, 2012, spanning NFL-record 418 passes. … RB Eddie Lacy has rushed for at least 90 yards in six of last nine games, including playoffs. … LB Julius Peppers has six sacks in last five games, including postseason. … With 1,044 career points, K Mason Crosby needs 11 to pass Ryan Longwell for franchise record. … Fantasy: WR James Jones may have had two TD catches against Bears in return to Green Bay, but fellow WR Davante Adams had team-high eight targets, doubling up Jones.
