NFL Predictions: Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers 9/10/17

NFL Predictions: Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers 9/10/17

Sure, Seattle's defense looked like the same "Legion of Boom" defense fans are accustomed in seeing, at least in the first half, but it was the Packers defense that stole the show. The Legion of Boom is the heart of the Seattle defense, and they've been missing members in each of their previous encounters with Green Bay.

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.

Parry, meanwhile, called back Jones' return, which originally went for a touchdown, because of an illegal block in the back by Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril.

In the other Sunday evening games in the National Football League, the Los Angeles Rams secured a huge 46-9 home win over the Indianapolis Colts, while the Carolina Panthers bettered the San Francisco 49ers 32-3 along the Californian coast.

On Green Bay's opening possession, Rodgers' interception-free streak was snapped at 251 attempts.

The Green Bay Packers - not the Seattle Seahawks - landed the momentum-swinging punch. "We were in the backfield a bunch". "That's really what it was tonight, if you really think about it". He's always been able to get the football to his tight ends, now he has one of the better ones in football.

"We played with great energy, but we didn't score enough points". The good news is that the Hawks offense eventually meshed and went on to score 24+ points in 10 games.

Struggling on offense, in part due to rough field position, the Packers erased the zero from the scoreboard in one play.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll liked how Wilson moved around in the face of the Packers' pressure. However, Wilson's pass - unloaded just before he was drilled by Daniels - went over Lockett's head. Russell Wilson did not have time to throw. On first down from the 23, he connected deep with receiver Amara Darboh against rookie cornerback Kevin King, but safeties Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix quickly converged and got Darboh out of bounds before he could get his feet down. Carroll said he thought it hit the white paint at the back of the end zone, but the team settled for a field goal on a day that would end without a touchdown in a 17-9 loss. Those are moments you take with you for a long time. Green Bay opens season at home for first time since 2012. He did that tonight.

Eddie Lacy couldn't help but laugh when he saw who the Seahawks' Week 1 opponent would be. He finished with just 158 yards and a fumble, and this play sums up why. Before Seattle drove for a field goal to close the first half, the Packers had allowed all of one first down.

"You've got to have that in your game, and I've been trying to implement it", Carson said.

The Packers made the most of their opportunity to make life miserable for Wilson.
