The Seattle Seahawks face the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday, Sept.10 in NFL Week 1. Here is all the info you need to watch.
Two teams that made the playoffs last season will meet up in the first week of the 2017 NFL Season. The Green Bay Packers will travel to the Pacific Northwest to meet up with the Seattle Seahawks. Both teams are incredibly talented and well-rounded.
Green Bay was a mess to start the season as they found themselves in a 4-6 hole with people calling for the head of coach Mike McCarthy. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t tell everyone to R-E-L-A-X, but he had another iconic press conference where he said the coach is fine and the team can run the table. They did in the regular season as they finished 10-6, then got themselves a game away from the Super Bowl.
Seattle isn’t too far removed from back-to-back Super Bowl appearances and made it to the playoffs last year despite having a terrible offensive line which led to a season of bumps and bruises for quarterback Russell Wilson. He will hope to get more help this season and one of their potential big players is former Packers running back Eddie Lacy, who likely wants to stick it to the team that refused to sign him.
A 1-0 start will be good, but the game between these tow could matter months from now as Seattle and Green Bay should again be in the playoff picture. A head-to-head victory would give one of them a tie breaker that could be valuable later on when the postseason could be on the line.
