The last time the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers met was during the dark ages of the 2012 NFL referee lockout. In what may have been one of the final blows causing the league to finally meet the terms of officials on a collective bargaining agreement, a replacement referee ruled touchdown on the Seahawks' last-second heave that was seemingly intercepted by Packers cornerback M.D. Jennings.
Expect the play to be rehashed when the two teams face each other Friday. The Packers may even be particularly motivated for revenge, at least as much as any team can be for a preseason game. The game is in Green Bay, so fans will almost certainly have a chip on their shoulder.
Ignoring the subtext, Friday's game should be fun to watch because it pits two of the league's best teams in what is roundly considered the best week of preseason football. Week 3 means that starters should see extended reps, giving fans what could be a fascinating duel between Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson before the first-team gives way to reserves.
