Seahawks vs Packers Sunday Night Football Pick

A pair of teams that consistently have been in the conversation for a Super Bowl berth the past few seasons will battle in Sunday Night Footballs Seahawks-Packers game.

NBC will have the national Seahawks-Packers Sunday Night Football broadcast, starting at 8:30 p.m. Eastern from Green Bay. It should be one of the most anticipated SNF games of the entire season.

The Seahawks (0-1) and Packers (1-0) played one of the most entertaining games of the entire postseason – other than the thrilling Seattle-New England Super Bowl of course – when Seattle defeated Green Bay 28-22 in overtime in Seattle in the NFC title game. That victory in the Seahawks-Packers game sent Seattle to a second straight Super Bowl, although it came up just a yard short of winning back to back Super Bowls, falling 28-24.

In the Seahawks-Packers NFC Championship Game, Green Bay led 19-7 late in the game. But Seattle scored on a Russell Wilson run with 2:09 remaining, recovered an onside kick, and scored on a Marshawn Lynch TD run with 1:25 left. After the 2-point conversion the Seahawks led the Packers, 22-19. Green Bay kicked a field goal with 14 seconds left to set up overtime, where Wilsons touchdown pass won it for Seattle.

Wilson threw for 209 yards in the Seahawks-Packers NFC title game, but had four interceptions. His only TD pass came in overtime. Lynch had 157 yards rushing on just 25 carries. Aaron Rodgers threw for 178 yards and a touchdown for Green Bay, but he had two interceptions.

Seattle fans likely dont want to be reminded of the Super Bowl loss to New England, where – inexplicably – Lynch didnt receive a handoff from the Patriots 1-yard-line in the closing seconds. Instead Wilson was intercepted on Seattles final offensive play with 20 seconds left, causing heavy criticism of Seattles coaches and play-calling.

Unfortunately for the Seahawks, they were in a similar situation in Week 1, needing 1 yard on fourth down to stay alive in overtime against St. Louis, which had kicked a field goal on its first overtime possession. This time the coaches chose to hand off to Lynch, who was hit for a loss, allowing St. Louis to upset Seattle, 34-31. Lynch finished with 73 yards on 18 carries against St. Louis, while Wilson threw for 251 yards with one TD and one interception in Week 1.

Green Bay won its opener at Chicago, 31-23. Rodgers threw for 189 yards and three scores against the Bears. But Green Bay will need a stronger rush defense in the Seahawks-Packers game, as they allowed Chicago to rush for 189 yards on just 33 carries.
