It's been a long time since opening weekend of the season where the Green Bay Packers lost to the defending Super Bowl Champions the Seattle Seahawks.
The weather in Seattle is going to be very wet and with Packer quarterbackAaron Rogers still nursing a calf injury his mobility is questionable, many are saying that due to his injury and the wet conditions it will be very difficult for Rogers to throw the ball, whereas the Seahawks have been practicing all week in the wet conditions preparing for the game.
The Packers have had a hard time on defense lately. They have been moving a number of players around trying to improve their run defense and with Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch running the ball for the Seahawks the Packer will need all the help they can get.
It is for these reason that I feel the Seattle Seahawks will be returning to the Super bowl this year. They will defeat the Green Bay Packers 27 - 17 in wet and rainy Seattle.
See what CBS Sports Pete Prisco and Pat Kirwan have to say in their preview of the NFC Conference Championship between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.
An interesting sidebar Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson has never, in his short NFL career, been beaten by a quarterback that has won the Super Bowl.
