What should concern the Packers against the Seahawks

12th Man Rising: What are some of your biggest worries about the Seahawks on Sunday?

Paul Bretl: My biggest worries are Russell Wilson and the big play. I’m not sure how to necessarily quantify it but Wilson is able to extend plays and pull off some truly remarkable things. Russell Wilson magic is what I will call it, and too much of that could easily spell trouble for the Packers. Then as I mentioned above, the Packers have given up a number of big plays this season – although they have been better as of late – while Seattle likes to take their deep shots. With the ups and downs we’ve seen from the Green Bay offense this season, if the defense allows too many quick scores, it’s reasonable to wonder if the offense can keep up and play from a large deficit.

Next. 3 bold predictions for Seahawks versus Packers. dark

Paul Bretl: I think the Packers win on Sunday for many of the reasons that I’ve mentioned. I think there is the potential for a big day from Aaron Jones, the defensive front should be able to pressure Wilson, I also expect Rodgers to have plenty of time in the pocket where he can find some success against a Seattle secondary that has allowed over 260 receiving yards per game. And this game is at Lambeau Field, where home-field advantage has been a huge factor between these two teams. Packers 20, Seahawks 13.
