On Thursday night, the Green Bay Packers traveled to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Seahawks. With Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson on the field, all eyeballs were tuned to FOX to see how this game would play out.

According to Austin Karp of the Sports Business Daily, the Thursday night game received the best overnight ratings for Thursday Night Football since Week 13 of 2016. It was FOX's highest-rated Thursday night game this season and the best for any Thursday night telecast in the past five years.

Here's the news from Karp.

Rodgers and Wilson delivered an entertaining matchup that ended with a 27-24 Seattle win. Despite solid play from Rodgers, the Packers failed to find a first down late in the fourth quarter.

Head coach Mike McCarthy made the controversial decision to punt the ball. After two first downs, the Seahawks were able to ice the game.

Green Bay moved to 4-5-1 on the season and is in serious danger of missing the playoffs. Meanwhile, Seattle moved to 5-5 on the year and is just outside the second wild card spot.
