Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers preview and prediction

Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers preview and prediction

While every defender was quick to point out this was only one game and the defense did make a handful of mistakes against a Seahawks offense that was missing starting halfback Thomas Rawls and hasn't fully fixed its problems on the line, there was no way the Packers could have put together this kind of performance against this caliber of opponent last season. What is the Week 1 National Football League picks for this game?

This would be the ultimate troll job after his career with the Green Bay Packers came to an abrupt end following last season. On third-and-long for Seattle, Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels beat guard Luke Joeckel for a strip-sack, with outside linebacker Kyler Fackrell recovering.

How many times has Aaron Rodgers battled back from penalties with big plays that make the penalty an afterthought? Some have looked ahead to the possibility the Seahawks will decide not to invest multiple years in the 30-year-old tight end and instead use their franchise tag to keep Graham for 2018 on a one-year contract. They had the one offsides touchdown and they got that fumble and they scored on the next play.

Seattle had two chances for big plays.

Wilson found receiver Doug Baldwin streaking across the field for a gain of 34 to the Packers' 44 with 22 seconds left. However, Wilson's pass - unloaded just before he was drilled by Daniels - went over Lockett's head. And of course the 38-10 debacle last season that stands as the worst blowout in the Pete Carroll-Russell Wilson era. The receiver caught the ball inside the 5-yard line but was pushed out of bounds by safeties Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix before he could get two feet down. Carroll said he thought it hit the white paint at the back of the end zone, but the team settled for a field goal on a day that would end without a touchdown in a 17-9 loss.

"We played a really good team today and were in it the whole way". Wilson was sacked 41 times and took 111 hits during the regular season, and he was sacked six times in two postseason games. "Me, personally, I don't plan on letting him get anything going on this field here, but he's definitely going to have a chip on his shoulder, and he's definitely got a point to prove coming in here". He did that tonight. They've got to stay on the field, and if not we will take advantage of them.

The free agent addition of former Packers running back Eddie Lacy didn't do anything to help the Seahawks. Rodgers would finish by completing 28 of 42 for 311 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

The Green Bay Packers - not the menacing Seattle Seahawks - landed the momentum-swinging punch.

"I get kicked in the shins a lot, get stepped on a lot".

The Packers made the most of their opportunity to make life miserable for Wilson. This is the 12th time since 2000 the Seahawks have opened the campaign on the road.
