NFL Predictions: Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers 9/10/17

The Seahawks excellent defense got even more excellent recently.

This would be the ultimate troll job after his career with the Green Bay Packers came to an abrupt end following last season.

Green Bay is coming off of an NFC Championship Game appearance last season as the Packers fell short against Atlanta. And when the quarter came to an end, the Seahawks had all of 3 total yards of offense.

While Seattle coach Pete Carroll said on Friday that Rawls is improving and has been officially a full participant in practice all week the team also wants to be cautious and make sure he's fully recovered before he plays. "The minute he gained a little weight, or you guys thought he couldn't move the way he wanted to move, everyone wanted to kick him down and throw rocks at him". But it can last for only so long, and their first performance of the year widened any existing gulf between offense and defense. He played 51 snaps in the second exhibition game against the Minnesota Vikings after Fant tore his ACL, then 45 snaps in the third game and 12 in the fourth.

Nadal eager to move up gears after slow US Open start
On the other hand, Nadal had a relatively easier first round outing during his straight sets win over Dusan Lajovic of Serbia. The No. 6 seed wrapped up a 6-4, 6-1, 6-1 rout of Australian Alex di Minaur, not long after they returned to the Grandstand .

With youngsters Justin McCray and Lucas Patrick behind them, the Pack is dangerously thin in the middle. In an effort to slim down and add strength, he went on a diet that consisted of nine meals and 4,800 calories a day, and he does indeed look leaner and stronger to those who've watched him on tape. Typically, however, you see more force involved when such penalties are called. "He's new, he'll probably have tendencies". The free-agent addition of ex-San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks last week only fueled discussion of Matthews lining up here, there and everywhere on defense, with the hope of making it harder for opposing offensive coordinators to scheme for him - if that's something they still do, of course. No, these two giants get to open against a fellow Super Bowl contender-each other. He's definitely pretty calm back there. Once you get into the game, you get into the feel of what he's doing, if things hold true. I think it's just everyone getting to the ball, everyone low tackling him. It's a fair question, because with starting left tackle and former power forward George Fant tearing his ACL, the inexperienced Rees Odhiambo steps into the starting role protecting Wilson's blindside. He made 11 tackles, including 2½ for loss, and had a number of rushes against Odhiambo.

"We have to recognize Eddie was an excellent, excellent player for us for three years there and it is unfortunate that you don't get to continue on with your own guys and that is usually the way we go forward", Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. " ... (But) he was good". The home team has won six straight meetings between these two, while the Packers have covered the spread in three straight meetings.

Wilson is back healthy and that is a scary proposition for the rest of the National Football League, as he looked leaner and more agile in the preseason. In addition to the offensive line struggles, starting tackle Bryan Bulaga's status for week one is now unknown due to an ankle injury that plagued him throughout the preseason.
