Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers face Russell Wilson on the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football.
Tonight's Monday Night Football game features Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers facing Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks in CenturyLink Field. Both teams are 1-1 and looking to get over .500 for the first time this season after opening week losses.
The Packers lost their opening game of the season against the San Francisco 49ers before rebounding to beat the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football four days later. The Seahawks lost their first game of the season to the Arizona Cardinals before coming home to face and beat the Dallas Cowboys.
The big matchup figures to be the Green Bay offense facing off with the Seattle defense. The Seahawks looked mighty impressive in shutting down a Dallas team that beat the Super Bowl champions on opening night, and the Packers have shown they can struggle with strong defenses after sputtering against San Francisco and not exactly putting together their best game offensively against Chicago. The Packers defense might need to be called upon to pressure the young Wilson and give Rodgers some help offensively.
The game is on at 8:30 PM ET on ESPN, and Green Bay is favored by 3 to 3.5 points depending upon where you look.
