Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Seattle Seahawks defense sacked Aaron Rodgers eight times in the first half of Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Seattle Seahawks defense sacked Aaron Rodgers eight times in the first half of Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. Rookie Bruce Irvin got the first two sacks of his career, Chris Clemons racked up four sacks and Brandon Mebane added two sacks of his own. Brian Bulaga was completely abused throughout the first half, while Aaron Rodgers was guilty of holding the ball too long.

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks' defense is the real deal. When playing in Seattle, the Seahawks have one of the best home field advantages in sports. The defense was flying all over the field and managed to hold the Packers scoreless in the first half.
