The Green Bay Packers played the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1 as the first game of the season. This week, the Packers will look to avenge their 36-16 loss in the opener. Both teams are different teams than in that first meeting, but Bovada sees the Seahawks as 7.5 point favorites at home.
The fact that both teams could be without a key defensive player this Sunday when the 49ers and Packers play is not good. While Green Bay already knows their fate, San Francisco is hoping and waiting that they will not be without Carlos Rogers.
Hats off to Mike Tomlin and his staff for guiding their team to a 2nd Super Bowl appearance in three years. In the era of the NFL where salary cap, free agency and bad behavior from athletes makes it hard to stay on top, this franchise still manages to do so.
