Green Bay Packers @ Seattle Seahawks
Sunday January 18, 2015. 3:05 p.m. EST, FOX
Packers’ fans are riding high after knocking off the polarizing Cowboys and silencing their always mouthy fan base. A combination of a one legged QB and fast acting karma doomed Dallas and propelled Green Bay to victory. Aaron Rodgers was visibly hobbled in the game but stepped up when it mattered most. He shined in the fourth quarter and looked like the MVP he will inevitably become at the end of this month. Meanwhile, in Seattle, the Seahawks just continued chugging along, dominating everything in their path. Let’s be honest, the Panthers never really had a chance. Let’s be honest again, neither do the Packers. Not in Seattle, not with a hobbled QB. The Seahawks front seven is going to get at Rodgers and The Legion of Boom will eat them alive. Last time these teams faced off on opening night Rodgers didn’t even throw at Richard Sherman once. More importantly, it’s the last time Rodgers looked really bad. If he was 100-percent, they would have a very slight chance in Seattle. With Rodgers at about 80-percent, no chance. Seattle will get a chance to defend their title in Arizona.
Green Bay Packers: What to look for
Believe it or not, Rodgers is the cheapest starting QB on DraftKings.com. If you think that’s crazy, what’s even crazier is the fact that you should go nowhere near him. At $7,800 he is $200 cheaper than next cheapest QB Russell Wilson and $700 cheaper than top QB Tom Brady. Along with Andrew Luck, all three QBs are better options this week than your next NFL MVP. He is playing in Seattle with a tear in his calf. No QB can overcome those odds. [Read more…]
