Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers
- Spread: Seahawks +4 at Draftkings Sportsbook
- Over/Under: 47
- Sun: 6:40 PM
Carson Wentz getting knocked out prevented us from having a really fun game. Josh McCown deserves some credit for a gutsy performance, but I have to think that if Wentz were in there the Eagles would have scored at least one touchdown inside the red zone if not two. That being said, Seattle is the one wild card team I can see that can make some noise. It’s not because of their putrid running game, but because Russell Wilson is that good. He makes pass rushers miss, he extends plays, and his scrambles result in first downs. He’s the one wild card QB I can trust on the road.
Green Bay is probably the softest 13-3 team I have ever seen.
Cheeseheads are going to be crowing about Rodgers all week, but he’s not having the greatest of years. I love Aaron Jones, but the Packers receivers are bad. Davante Adams is good, but he hasn’t been lighting it up this season. The offensive line is getting older. The defensive line gets nice pressure and can sometimes be tough on the run, but their back seven is just atrocious. I don’t trust their defensive backs and there isn’t much team speed to take away tall, rangy receivers who like to streak downfield.
Seattle’s a weird team that doesn’t scare and they can win on the road. They are now 8-1 on the road including last week. This is a full-blown trend and while a lot of those wins were one score games, last week’s win wasn’t. I’m expecting a tight one that comes down to the wire and right now, I’d take Wilson in a close one.
