Seattle Seahawks vs Green-Bay Packers : The Green Bay Packers (4-4-1) will aim for their first set of consecutive victories this season as they face the slumping Seattle Seahawks (4-4) in a Thursday night matchup.
The Packers have beaten the Seahawks each of the last three years since Seattle’s win in the 2014 NFC Championship Game. In that run, Green Bay has nine takeaways as opposed to two turnovers. Also, the Seahawks have lost five of their last seven home games, including two straight. The Seahawks haven’t lost three in a row at home since dropping five between Oct. 12-Dec. 7, 2008. However, Green Bay has lost six straight on the road – the team’s worst run since Dec. 2, 1990-Sep. 29, 1991
Coming off a loss to the New England Patriots, the Packers enjoyed a relatively stress-free 31-12 win over the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 19-of-28 passes for 199 yards and two touchdown passes. The Packers were also helped by running back Aaron Jones, who rushed for 145 yards and two touchdowns in the win. He is just the fifth different Packer with 145-plus rushing yards and two-plus rushing touchdowns in a game.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks dropped their second consecutive game in a 36-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. However, Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny rushed for a career-high 108 yards and a touchdown in the loss. Only three Seattle rookies have had a better performance on the ground than Penny. Overall, Seattle’s rush game has been a strength as the Seahawks are averaging 152.2 rushing yards per game this season, best in the league. In 2017, they averaged just 101.8 yards per game, tenth worst in the NFL.
In addition to winning the last three meetings, the Packers own the all-time series advantage at 11-7.
Just like every other team that faces him, the Seahawks will have to contain Aaron Rodgers the best they can. He passed for 311 yards in their last meeting and has 10 pass touchdowns with just two interceptions for a 101.5 rating in seven career starts against the Seahawks.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is coming off a solid performance in Week 10, passing for three touchdowns and posting 92 rushing yards. In two meetings against the Packers at CenturyLink Field, Wilson has four touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also has performed well on Thursdays, going 6-0 with 12 touchdowns and three interceptions.
The Packers lost their ninth fumble of the season last week – tied for second-most in the league this season. That could be one way the Seahawks can neutralize Green Bay and secure a win.
Seattle wide receiver Tyler Lockett caught his seventh touchdown pass of the season, setting a career high. He is now tied for fifth in the league in touchdown receptions this season. He also has caught touchdown passes in two of his three career Thursday night contests.
Green Bay receiver Davante Adams caught two touchdown passes against Miami last Sunday. It was his second two-touchdown performance of the season, and only one player in the NFL has more such games this year.
