Holy hell it’s week 14! The Seattle Seahawks will dive into the home stretch head first, starting with a trip to the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, before returning home to face the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football. If the near-annual game against the Carolina Panthers has become a seventh divisional game, then games against the Green Bay Packers must be rivalry week.
Russell Wilson is in his fifth season in the NFL, which almost matches the amount of memorable games he’s had against the Packers in that time: the Fail Mary, the wonderful NFL kickoff game following the XLVIII triumph, the NFC Championship Game, annnd an awfully forgettable Sunday Night Football game last season. Really, the only things I remember from that game are K.J. Wright’s ejection, Luke Willson’s ridiculous catch, and Al and Cris gushing over Aaron Rodgers’ hard count like it was the first few ever.
Seattle will begin its long stretch without Earl Thomas against a stiff task, with Rodgers once again playing like one of the best quarterbacks in NFL, while Green Bay’s defense has stopped breeding Offensive Player of the Week-performances from opposing quarterbacks, instead being just good enough over the past few weeks.
