Bold prediction number 4: Aaron Rodgers throws 2 interceptions and 2 touchdowns
Aaron Rodgers still needs to be cleared to play for Sunday’s game after missing week 9 after testing positive for COVID-19. Let’s assume he will. Rodgers will probably come in extra-motivated playing off the fact that he, whether right or wrong, feels wronged by the reaction he has gotten from some misleading statements about vaccinated.
Rodgers is going to play well but he is going to make two mistakes that end up in interceptions. One will be by Quandre Diggs and the other by Tre Brown. By the end of the game, Rodgers will still throw for 350 yards and a couple of touchdowns, though.
Bold prediction number 5: The Packers win in a game that is closer than the final score implies
This game is going to go a lot like most 2021 games for the Seahawks. The offense will start decently enough but as the game unfolds Green Bay will dominate time of possession more and more. This year, Seattle is last in the NFL when it comes to its offense have time of possession. The Seahawks averages holding on to the ball for 25:52 of the game and this is 1 minute and 15 seconds less than the 31st team.
Green Bay keeps the ball for an 8th-best 31:21 of the game. So what is going to happen in week 10 is Green Bay is going to keep the ball for 38 minutes to Seattle’s 22. By the beginning of the fourth quarter, the game will be tied at 17 but the Seahawks defense will be tired. Green Bay will dominate the final quarter and win 31-17.
