Alexander gains 201, calls for masseuse

In his second game back from injury, Shaun Alexander ran for 201 yards, and Matt Hasselbeck returned after missing four games to help the Seahawks rally for a 34-24 victory over the Packers on Monday night.

Hasselbeck, who threw three first-half interceptions, recovered to throw touchdowns of 23 yards to D.J. Hackett in the third quarter and 4 yards to Darrell Jackson and 3 to Jerramy Stevens in the fourth, erasing a 21-12 deficit.

Alexander's 201 yards, on 40 carries, nearly matched his total for the season: He went in with 224 yards and a 2.7-yard average. He had missed six games with a stress fracture in his foot.

"I feel like I need a massage and a cold whirlpool and some good rest," he said.

The temperature was 34 at kickoff and snow fell for the first time at a Seattle home game. Green Bay's Brett Favre lost for the ninth time in 50 games played with the temperature 34 or below.

The Seahawks overcame four first-half turnovers by Hasselbeck - one returned for a touchdown by Abdul Hodge - thanks to a four field goals by Josh Brown.
