Keys To The Game

For Green Bay:

1. Can they block Michael Bennett? He had 8.5 sacks last season.
2. Can they contain Marshawn Lynch? He rushed for 1257 yards last season.
3. Can the secondary slow down Doug Baldwin? He caught 50 passes for 778 yards and 5 touchdowns last season.

For Seattle: 

1. Can the Seahawks cornerbacks shut down Jordy Nelson?
2. Can they contain Eddie Lacy? HE rushed for 1178 yards last season.
3. Can the Seahawks offensive line block Clay Matthews? He had 7.5 sacks last season.

 

My Prediction

The Seahawks want to make this game a defensive game and the Packers want it to be a high scoring game. Whichever team plays to their style will get the win.

I think the Seahawks play to their style and make it a defensive game. I think the Seahawks take advantage of the game being a defensive game by forcing a couple turnovers and then taking advantage by scoring off the turnovers.

Final Score

Seattle: 27
Green Bay: 17
