Green Bay Packers Grudge Match Against the Seattle Seahawks
Two of the top teams in the NFC clash Sunday when the Green Bay Packers host the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have walked away with a 3-0 record in their past three games against Green Bay, including the NFC Championship Game last year. Rodgers and company face a tougher defense this Sunday, but they do get to take on the Seahawks at home. The Packers are 9-0 in their last nine games at home. The game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks is set for Sunday, September 20, 2015, at 8:30 p.m. ET at Lambeau Field. The game will be broadcasted on NBC.
The Green Bay offense and looks like the real deal. James Jones was the replacement for Jordy Nelson, and Randall Cobb looked just fine on the outside in spite of some injury woes coming into the year. Eddie Lacy wasn’t quite as explosive looking as we remember him, but he should do well.
The Seattle defense is supposed to be an aggressive defense which forces a lot of turnovers. Last week, Nick Foles of the Rams was awesome against this unit in his first game. Also, not having Kam Chancellor will be a the big loss. Chancellor is still holding out in search of a new contract, and he won’t be playing this week either.
The Seahawks are going to put the ball in the hands of Marshawn Lynch. The quarterback Russell Wilson should run his offense as good as he always does. This offense put up 343 yards against the Rams last week. If this is a similar game for the offense, there’s a good chance that Seattle will win. The key is going to be staying out of third down and long situations for Wilson. He only averaged 6.1 yards per pass attempt, but he went 32-of-41 against St. Louis. That’ll be good enough to keep the chains moving and keep the Green Bay offense off the field, which is going to key for Seattle to win this one.
