Packers @ Seahawks

Recommended Posts



The home team has won seven straight between these teams (regular season and playoffs) dating back to 2009. The Seahawks have lost at Green Bay in each of the past three seasons, with Seattle's last win in the series coming in the 2015 NFC Championship game. The Packers haven't won in Seattle since 2008.

Green Bay has lost six straight road games (four this year), its worst road losing streak since dropping six in a row between the 1990 and 1991 seasons. A loss Thursday would saddle the Packers with their longest road losing streak since a nine-game skid from 1978 to '79.

Seattle is trying to avoid losing three consecutive home games for the first time since a five-game slide in 2008. The Seahawks are 5-6 at home since the start of last season after going 39-6 (.867) in Seattle from 2012-16, best in the NFL over that span (regular season and playoffs).

Aaron Rodgers has thrown for multiple touchdowns and no interceptions in each of the last two weeks and six times this season -- only Drew Brees (7) has done it more. Rodgers ranks fifth in the Super Bowl era (since 1966) with 67 such games. Rodgers has 17 TDs to one INT this season for an interception percentage of 0.3, on pace to be the lowest in NFL history (min. 300 attempts).

With 21 touchdowns and five interceptions, Russell Wilson joins Patrick Mahomes as the only QBs with a TD% of 8.0+ and an INT% of 2.0 or lower. The only QBs to do that over a full season are Peyton Manning (2013, 2004), Nick Foles (2013), Rodgers (2011), Tom Brady (2007) and Milt Plum (1960).

Seattle leads the NFL in rush attempts per game at 32.0, while Green Bay ranks 27th with 22.3 rushes per game. Both teams are productive when they run, with 51.2 percent of the Packers' rush attempts going for 4+ yards (2nd in NFL -- LAR, 53.2) and 50.7 percent of Seattle's going for 4+ yards (3rd in NFL).

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports "there's a growing sense" Mike McCarthy will be replaced after the season.

McCarthy is on the hot seat after another road loss. His job security has been a storyline all year, but McCarthy's track record is strong enough to avoid an in-season firing. McCarthy's questionable playcalling was on full display Thursday night, costing the Packers a chance to win by punting with four minutes remaining. Green Bay's playoff chances are looking slim with losses in three of their last four games. After a lame duck extension in January, the Packers can easily move on from McCarthy this offseason.

The San Diego Union Tribune's David Chao expects Jimmy Graham (thumb) to miss 4-6 weeks.

A Friday MRI confirmed a broken thumb for Graham. He may potentially need surgery, putting his rest-of-season status in question. Graham hasn't been a huge factor this year, but losing him is another hit to the Packers' offense. Lance Kendricks will start until Graham returns.
