The Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks game kicks off at 2:05 p.m. (CT) on Sunday, January 18. The TV channel for the game is FOX. The game can be streamed live online through FOX as well. The Seahawks are a 7.5-point favorite.
It is rare in the NFL that the two teams most people thought would be the best at the beginning of the year end up being the best, but that is exactly what we have here.
I like Green Bay in this game. That is not a popular pick. Someone on the Facebook page told me I am crazy for picking the Packers- which probably means it is a really good pick. Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback on the planet right now. I know he is banged up, and I know that the Seahawks have a great defense, but this is a quarterback league. Rodgers leads the Pack to a late win.
Maybe I am crazy. Seattle is the toughest place to play in the NFL. The Seahawks also have Marshawn Lynch, who has been nothing short of spectacular in the playoffs. He looks to have a big day against a Packers defense that isn't great. Even with all of that, give me Green Bay.
