The 3-5 Seattle Seahawks have a 31st ranked defense and a 29th ranked offense, so it’s a good thing quarterback Russell Wilson (finger) has been cleared by his doctor to play, but they are most likely facing a Packers team with Aaron Rodgers under center so it’s time to start taking advantage of playmaker receivers D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett and get on the board early.
It looks like future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers should play on Sunday for Green Bay after much Covid-19 drama this last week and a half, and the Packers’ top-5 defense is one of the other main reasons this team is 7-2 and poised for a playoff run, so a Week 10 win against these subpar Seahawks should give them yet another positive notch in their win column.
These two NFC rivals have met up 23 other times (including 4 postseason games), with the Green Bay Packers winning 14 of those games and the Seattle Seahawks winning 9 of the games.
Seattle Seahawks vs Green Bay Packers Predictions
Can Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (Finger) Return This Soon?
Seattle’s franchise quarterback Russell Wilson fractured a finger on his throwing hand against Rams Aaron Donald’s pass-rushing body in Week 5 and Wilson has had a pin in place ever since, but that pin has just been removed and his doctors have cleared him to play on Sunday.
Credit Wilson’s hard rehab work and consistent training while he was injured for his ability to jump back under center to help his team win during this second half of the season, but there is no telling how his throwing motion has been affected or how long it will take for him to return to prior shape.
Despite his Seahawks’ losing record, Wilson has had a decent season stats-wise, completing 72 percent of his passes with 90 completions for almost 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns with just one interception in the five games he has started, good numbers he could use on Sunday.
Can Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Pass Covid Protocols?
After testing positive for Covid-19, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had to pay a fine for breaking league protocols plus do some serious explaining to the league and fans about why he seemed to imply earlier that he had been vaccinated when he described himself as “immunized.”
All drama aside, the future Hall of Famer needs to show no symptoms and test negative on Saturday in order to suit up on Sunday for this one, something that he and his head coach Matt LaFleur seem to think will most likely happen.
Rodgers’ sick status likely cost his team their Week 9 matchup with the Chiefs which his team lost by a score of 7-13, a game that they probably could have won with him under center, a loss that this seven-win team can thankfully absorb.
Seahawks Key Player: (WR) D.K. Metcalf
For this Seahawks team to stay alive this season, they could use a Week 10 win against these Packers, and a big part of that victory should be playmaking wide receiver D.K. Metcalf who has the size and speed and hands to make a difference on Sunday.
Metcalf is 6’ 4” and 235 pounds but runs faster than most cornerbacks and can fight them for the football, plus he is tough enough to earn yards after his catches, which makes a valuable target, especially for a guy like QB Wilson who could use some help as he returns from injury.
Metcalf has had catches in ever game so far this season, right now with 39 receptions for 580 yards and 8 touchdowns, impressive numbers already that should begin to grow exponentially now that his quarterback Wilson is back to hurling the balls.
Packers Key Player: (WR) Davante Adams
When the conversation turns to the best NFL receiver playing right now, Davante Adams’ name invariably comes up because he is playing at the top of his game right now when it comes to running routes, dependable catching, and total production.
Adams is 28 and has been in the league since the 2014 season, and he and quarterback Aaron Rodgers have built up a special connection that the 6’ 1” 215 pound receiver has taken full advantage of in all eight of the Packers games this season.
Adams has 58 catches off 87 targets for 786 yards and 3 touchdowns, right now ranked as the fourth most productive receiver in the league, so watch for him on Sunday as he and Rodgers attempt to tear up the Seahawks’ 28th ranked passing defense all afternoon at Lambeau.
