NFL Football Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers Start Time, NFL Odds

Carroll Rawls is questionable for Seahawks’ season opener

Carroll Rawls is questionable for Seahawks’ season opener

The Seahawks look to make an early statement with a pivotal road victory against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but a win at Lambeau is always tough to come by for visitors and this spot is no different. Establishing a running game helped ease pressure on Rodgers past year, as he lit up the Seahawks with three touchdowns. Green Bay's defense had its way with Seattle up front, leaving Russell Wilson running for his life and keeping the Seahawks' passing game from ever really finding any consistent rhythm.

It'll also be interesting to see whether ex-San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who saw the Seahawks twice a year, can chip in on the Packers' pass rush after just arriving this week. "For me, it's going to be the first time being on the opposite side of that".

"I've never been to the visitor's locker room", Lacy said with a chuckle. Get $60 worth of FREE premium member picks. He is just such a fantastic football player. Started at the line of scrimmage.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll will have a few gripes about the officiating in this game.

"He's done everything we've asked of him". The Packers let him go after season-ending ankle surgery in October-and two 1,100-yard rushing seasons before that.

"The less bags you carry in, the better. And we will be". Packers' defensive tackle Mike Daniels wrecked Seattle nearly single-handedly.

"He's a difference-maker", Rodgers said of Thomas.

In his prime, Rodgers is ready to make another run. "That kind of got everybody going". The Seahawks responded with their longest sustained series, driving 71 yards over 11 plays thanks to some impressive plays by Chris Carson and Paul Richardson, but they stalled out at the Packers' 3 and had to settle for another Blair Walsh field goal. Lacy and Thomas Rawls likely will share the majority of carries on first and second down, though an exact distribution of playing time remains unclear. His injury was announced at the start of the third quarter.

SEAHAWKS NOTABLE ROOKIE: Cornerback Shaquill Griffin. The Packers beat Seattle 27-27 at then Qwest Field. "Because I don't", defensive end Cliff Avril said. "Today, they made one or two more plays more than us".

"As good as he is, I would've thought they would've won more than one by now". They believed coaches took it easy on the offense and Wilson in particular, excusing their mistakes while harping on defensive miscues, even as Seattle's success hinged on the defense's dominance. "I mean, really, two plays that really changed the game". The Packers have the edge in total yards, first downs and time of possession, but the Seahawks lead.

Can the Seahawks figure it out and find a way to stop one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL? It's filled with plates dating back to "87, including the fabled PACK-Y2K".

Wilson found receiver Doug Baldwin streaking across the field for a gain of 34 to the Packers' 44 with 22 seconds left. Thus, Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell should be able to give Wilson the green light to run anytime he sees fit.

Rodgers still threw for 311 yards, a TD and an interception, but he had just a 86.5 rating.

Lane, the starter opposite All-Pro Richard Sherman, was ejected, but the Packers couldn't take advantage during the first half.

Jordy Nelson: Nelson had seven catches for 79 yards and a touchdown. I said this during the offseason, our defensive backs are working.
