Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers didn't challenge cornerback Richard Sherman once in Thursday's 36-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

On Friday, coach Mike McCarthy said his quarterback wasn't intentionally avoiding one of the league's top cover men.

Rather, McCarthy and his coaching staff wanted to see if -- by putting top receiver Jordy Nelson on the left side of the formation -- Sherman might leave his comfort zone on the right side of the field.

Sherman stayed put, and as a result, according to ESPN Stats & Information, Rodgers did not attempt a single pass to a receiver outside the numbers on the right side, where Sherman patrolled.
