Packers-Seahawks preview


Packers at Seahawks

When/where: 8:30; CenturyLink Field, Seattle

TV/radio: Ch. 8; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Line: Seahawks by 6, 46½

This matchup pits the league's top secondary (Seattle) against one of its top passers (Aaron Rodgers). If cornerback Richard Sherman and the Seahawks neutralize some of Rodgers' targets, the game could come down to running backs. Marshawn Lynch has taken a beating in Seattle, but Eddie Lacy had a strong rookie season in Green Bay (1,178 yards). The Packers have the advantage at quarterback but not by much: Seattle's Russell Wilson had the seventh-best passer rating in the league last year.

Matt Baker's pick: Seattle, 21-20
