GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was none too happy about a shot he took from Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane at the end of the first half when they were in kneel-down formation.

Cobb was standing in a slot position watching Rodgers take the snap when Lane came up and drove him back with a two-hand shove. No flag was thrown, but the play caused a scrum between the two teams in the middle of the field and Cobb could be seen talking to Lane as the two headed to their respective locker rooms.

"They’re just cheap," Cobb said Monday, a day after the Packers beat the Seahawks 38-10 at Lambeau Field. "Bunch of front-runners."

Asked if he thought there was a gentleman's agreement that players don't hit the opposition on kneel-downs that end the half or the game, Cobb said: "That’s Seattle for you. That’s what they do. It was all over the field (Sunday)."

Cobb said he didn't know why Lane chose to hit him in that situation or if it was retaliation for something Cobb had done to him.

"No clue," he said.

Packers coaches lectured players all week not to respond to any pushes or shoves the Seahawks might give them during the game. Cobb said it was difficult not to retaliate.

"Yeah, it was hard, but I have to keep my composure in those situations," he said. "I tried my best to."
