The Green Bay Packers will be facing the Seattle Seahawks for Sunday Night Football. NFL draft managers can tune to NBC TV on September 20th at 8:30PM Eastern Time to follow the results of their roster picks.

The clubs met twice a season ago with the Seahawks winning both games. During the regular season it was a 36-16 home victory for Seattle as the team ran the ball for 207 yards in the win. Then in the NFC Championship Game it was the Seahawks with a second half comeback that resulted in a 28-22 home overtime victory that sent Seattle into the Super Bowl.

Seattle looks for their first victory of the season after the club was defeated 34-31 on the road last week to the St Louis Rams in overtime. The Seahawks were down 11 after three quarters than rallied for 18 straight fourth quarter points. But they allowed the Rams to score the tying touchdown as Nick Foles completed a 37 yard touchdown pass with 53 seconds left to push the game into overtime. Seattle allowed 352 yards to the Rams offense with 276 yards to their passing attack. The Seahawks need to be better than 1 of 4 inside the red zone.

The Green Bay Packers were sent on the road to open the season at the Chicago Bears where they earned a 31-23 victory. The Packers offense was efficient going 4 of 5 inside the red zone. They will need to clean up the ten penalties from week one. A concern for the Green Bay defense is they allowed 189 yards on the ground. They face a Seattle Seahawks offense that has a very good running attack so the Packers ability to improve their run defense will be keys in this game. Green Bay allowed Bears running back Matt Forte to rush for 141 yards.

Seattle Seahawks QB:

Russell Wilson

In the opener last week Wilson completed 32 of 41 passes for 251 yards with a touchdown and a pick. The Seahawks quarterback was given a huge contract in the offseason.

Marshawn Lynch

The Seattle running back was busy in week one as he ran 18 times for 73 yards with six first down gains. He had a run for 24 yards and averaged 4.1 yards per gain.
