Seahawks versus Packers week one

Seahawks versus Packers week one

Green Bay Packers on the radio? Green Bay's defense though will need to sharpen up as they will have to match the skill of their offense if they're going to compete with the league's best and a strong showing at home in week one would be a huge building block.

"He's had a great run with us getting to this point". That was all the offense the Packers needed.

"I feel like I can remember any of the good rushes that I had", Fackrell said. Or, to put it another way, they'll try to answer this question: If Seattle uses Lacy the way we used Lacy, how can we try to stop him?

In Green Bay, he'll join fellow 49ers castoff Ahmad Brooks.

The gist: In a game where the Seahawks were playing lights-out defense, it was their O-line issues that actually opened the doors for the Packers. "I think we have all the pieces in place to go out there and give them a great fight, and I look forward to it". Burnett and rookie Josh Jones are the safeties that will rotate in and out of the linebacker position this year.

Seattle's secondary was hit with three first quarter penalties, but Green Bay couldn't capitalize. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has all the weapons, starting with Jordy Nelson and newcomer Martellus Bennett (yet, oddly familiar) at tight end.

Notable: The Seahawks' defensive line has the potential to be the best in the league this season, but it twice almost sustained big blows as defensive end Cliff Avril and debuting defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson each had to get looked at on the sideline for shoulder and hip injuries, respectively.

The Seahawks superstar quarterback Russell Wilson, who has a three a career-high five interceptions in the contest at against the Packers in 2016, has appeared to be very fierce and intense during the preseason and thanks to his healthy diet he's now even more athletic. The recent addition of defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson from the New York Jets gives the Seahawks eight starters on defense who have played in at least one Pro Bowl. I'm just processing everything.

The other early games included Pittsburgh beating Cleveland 21-18, the Jaguars dominating the Texans in Houston 29-7, Matthew Stafford and the Lions beating Arizona 35-23, the Falcons holding off the Bears 21-17, the Eagles and Carson Wentz beating Washington 30-17 and the Raiders beating the Titans 26-16.

But as Sherman said of the prospect of today's matchup: "A different game, a different team".

The good news for Buffalo Bills fans ahead of this game is that the team has not listed LeSean McCoy on their final injury report. The loss of T.J. Lang and JC Tretter in free agency has led to shakeup of sorts along Green Bay's offensive line which could play into Seattle's hands in this game. "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".

Wilson found receiver Doug Baldwin streaking across the field for a gain of 34 to the Packers' 44 with 22 seconds left.

Russell Wilson's five interceptions against Green Bay a year ago were an anomaly. Wilson struggled with timing on quick passing plays in the past, but it's something he worked on in camp to improve this year.

Notable: Tyler Lockett showed he's doing just fine. "First off, he's ready", Carroll told reporters regarding Lacy. Along with a couple of playoff games, the Seahawks were ultimately 9-9 against the spread last season.
