Morning Buzz: Saving a season in the snow
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 cup of coffee (or brew some tea, if that’s your thing) and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers as they get set to take on the Seattle Seahawks in snowy Lambeau Field later this afternoon.
Bob McGinn’s game preview is, as always, you best place to start on game day.
In their last two games against Seattle, the Packers have played solid defense in all but one quarter (and overtime). The key to victory is making the Seahawks pay for their porous offensive line, making life miserable for Russell Wilson and forcing punts and/or turnovers. Points will be at a premium. The offense will need some short fields.
In case you hadn’t heard, it’s going to be incredibly snowy during today’s game:
