Rodgers, Packers down Seahawks in epic Week 1 defensive battle

Or would they embrace him, celebrating his four years and more than 3,000 yards as a Green Bay Packer?

The Seahawks will host their NFC West rival in the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon.

"Tyler's ready to go", Carroll said. Eddie has the ability to hurdle, you've seen that as well.

Daniels and Perry - whom the Packers signed to contract extensions over the past two years - led the way for the pass rush in combining for 10 tackles, three sacks and six hits on Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, who was limited to only 158 yards on 14-of-27 passing.

This was Lacy's first game since last October 16, here at Lambeau Field against Dallas. The Seahawks have a seven-game losing streak in Green Bay, including playoffs.

According to Bovada sports book in Las Vegas, Brady is favored to win the 2017 MVP (4-1), followed by Rodgers (5-1), Carr (9-1) and Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (9-1).

Rodgers still threw for 311 yards, a TD and an interception, but he had just a 86.5 rating. "I keep a lot of notes about games, pre-game and post-game, and just going back and reviewing those over the years, what worked, what I was thinking about certain times and just staying in a really positive head space".

Offensively, Seattle will look to run the ball more. The numbers when he's there and when he's not are staggering. When the Seahawks kicked off the 2017 National Football League season on Sunday afternoon, the former Alabama standout was where he expected to be - in Green Bay. He's that big a factor all over the field.

"You should never want to shy down from a tackle, because then it just looks bad", Green Bay cornerback Davon House said about the prospect of tackling Lacy on Sunday. The Packers let him go after season-ending ankle surgery in October-and two 1,100-yard rushing seasons before that.

Rawls is continuing to recover from a high ankle sprain suffered in the exhibition opener against the Chargers on August 13. This year, at least one, when the Seattle Seahawks travel to Green Bay to face the Packers.

And Seattle needs to get some pressure on Aaron Rodgers.

But Lacy - perhaps more than anyone - knows the Hawks are up to the task.

Lane, the starter opposite All-Pro Richard Sherman, was ejected, but the Packers couldn't take advantage during the first half.

If the Packers crave more insight they might turn to an unlikely source.

Few quarterbacks are able to put up big numbers against Seattle's pass defense, which has been the backbone of the team's success over the last five years. Odhiambo played in nine games as a rookie, counting playoffs, and made zero starts.

What a juicy match-up to help kick off the NFL's opening week. If the Seahawks pull this off they could be 6-0 in mid-October. "Maybe I can find a small patch of Seahawks fans and do it there, but I've thought about it".

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt.

Tune in to Action 2 News at 10 and Sunday Sports Night Cover 2 at 10:35 for all your Packers postgame coverage. A head-to-head victory would give one of them a tie breaker that could be valuable later on when the postseason could be on the line.
