Seahawks vs Packers Winner Is Obvious, Says ESPN
The Seahawks vs Packers winner is obvious, says ESPN.
Heading into Sunday’s showdown between Seattle and Green Bay, ESPN put together a computer model to determine the winner.
According to this model, the Packers have a 66.3 percent chance of coming out with a win.
The Seahawks won an ugly outing versus an injury-riddled Philadelphia Eagles squad this week, but they are facing a much different beast this time around.
Green Bay’s pass rush is legit and it remains to be seen if Seattle’s offensive line will be able to keep up. If they can’t, it will be a long day for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
Za’Darius Smith, Preston Smith and Kenny Clark lead a defense that boasts the best pressure rate in the NFL. Wilson, contrary to popular opinion, is not great under pressure.
If the Packers defense makes Wilson uncomfortable from the jump, things could get out of hand quick.
On defense, Pete Carroll’s group has to figure out a way to slow down quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Davante Adams. That too will not be an easy task.
Counting out Wilson can sometimes be a recipe for disaster, but it is legitimately difficult to see a scenario where Seattle comes out of this weekend with a victory.
