Morning Buzz: Finally Packers game day
Welcome to your game day Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Pete Dougherty’s latest column on today’s matchup between the Seahawks and the Packers.
The Packers (4-1, according to Bovada) and Seahawks (5-1) are the favorites to win the NFC, followed Atlanta (6-1) and Dallas (13-2).
And when it comes to Packers-Seahawks, it’s Goliath against Goliath.
The Packers should have one of the NFL’s most explosive offenses with perennial MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers at quarterback and a corps of multi-skilled weapons, including Jordy Nelson, Martellus Bennett, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery.
The Seahawks counter with what should again be football’s best defense. They led the NFL in fewest points allowed from 2012 through 2015 and made a big personnel move last week that they hope will get them back to the top after slipping to No. 3 last year: trading for defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson from the New York Jets.
