The Green Bay Packers (13-4) travel to the 12th man to face the Seattle Seahawks (13-4). This is a rematch of the first game of the year when Seattle steamrolled GB 36-16. These teams represent the top 2 seeds in the NFC. Aaron Rodgers started really slow last week against Dallas, but then went 9 for 9 on that last drive to seal the game. (If you want to call it that, we all know that was a catch). What makes this game interesting is that the NFL’s top offense (GB) will play versus the NFL’s best Defense (Seattle). Seattle is heavily favored in this game, but the presence of Aaron Rodgers gives them an opportunity to pull the upset.

Important things to know: Aaron Rodgers is still limited with that sore calf and things could get real on Sunday. The Seattle Defense is action packed with stars at every level. If Rodgers’ mobility is limited, he’ll be a sitting duck back there with guys like Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril rushing the passer. I don’t expect his receivers to create much separation, as the Legion of Boom is playing at an entirely different level than any other secondary GB has faced. In the first game they stayed away from Richard Sherman, and still didn’t really get anything going. For Green Bay to have a chance guys like Randall Cobb and Eddie Lacy have to have the games of their lives. On the other side Russell Wilson is 25-2 at home including the playoffs and yes he is an elite Quarterback. Marshawn Lynch is just a stud. Forget statistical evidence the Seahawks are just bigger, faster, and stronger than everyone else in the league.

Corner Politics Prediction: Pete Carroll has been on a ridiculous run at Seattle and we look for them to roll against Green Bay on Sunday. Green Bay just is not a good matchup against Seattle on either side of the ball. Rodgers has the ability to keep the game close for the first quarter and a half, but this one will turn into a bloodbath. Final Score 40-17 Seattle
