Sunday Afternoon Seahawks Vs Packers
Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers
On Sunday afternoon we’re treated with what has come to be a classic rivalry in the NFC over the last few years. Between the playoff matchups, close games and featuring two of the best quarterbacks the game has to offer, Seahawks vs Packers has become must-watch football. This season will be no different. Both squads will be looking for a little redemption in 2017 and an early victory over this opponent would certainly start the season off on a good note.
Keys to the Game
As always, the key to beating Aaron Rodgers and the Packers is to try and contain Rodgers. Easier said than done. However, if anyone has the defensive talent to do such a thing, Seattle would definitely be on the short list. The Seahawks excel at getting pressure from their D-line and have one of the best secondaries in all of football. Slow Aaron Rodgers down and it will be Seattle’s game to lose.
The Pack is going to have to pressure Russell Wilson in order to win this one. Their pass defense was horrendous in 2016 and it’s hard to predict any drastic improvements for the start of 2017 when they return similar personnel. Forcing Seattle to settle for short, quick passes and running the ball will keep Green Bay in the game and give Aaron Rodgers a chance to work some magic on the offensive side of the ball without being forced to throw it every down.
