Here is the latest Washington, Oregon and Alaska sports news from The Associated Press

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks are hoping to snap a pair of losing streaks this week. The Seahawks have lost their past eight trips to Green Bay. Seattle’s previous win over the Packers at Lambeau Field came in 1999. The Seahawks have also lost the past eight times they have played in the divisional round of the playoffs on the road. Their only divisional round road win in franchise history came on Dec. 31, 1983, when they upset Miami in the AFC playoffs. The Seahawks know it will be a challenge to end both of those losing streaks. 

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers won his first Super Bowl nearly a decade ago. The time to capture a second is running out.

Wilson is 0-3 as a starter at Lambeau Field.
