SEA­HAWKS, 28-27

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NL WEST - Sea­hawks RB Ed­die Lacy.

Con­sen­sus line: Pack­ers by 3 Pre­dic­tion: What’s shap­ing up to be one of the best ri­val­ries in foot­ball should have an­other mem­o­rable in­stall­ment. Other than last year’s blowout at Lambeau, this game al­ways seems to fea­ture a can’t-miss end­ing, and this week should pro­vide plenty of en­ter­tain­ment. Seat­tle has added mo­ti­va­tion af­ter last


year’s em­bar­rass­ment, and the Sea­hawks are healthy. Green Bay hit its stride down the stretch last sea­son and en­ters 2017 as one of the NFC fa­vorites. Two of the best quar­ter­backs in the NFL should keep the chains mov­ing, but this game could come down to which run­ning game has the most suc­cess and also might have a crazy fin­ish.

uSTART: Pack­ers WR Da­vante Adams. Pack­ers QB Aaron Rodgers is matchup proof, so his wide­outs are never risky starts. Adams burned the Sea­hawks sec­ondary for 104 yards and a touch­down last year.

uSIT: He’ll be pumped up to pro­duce against his former team, but the like­li­hood of that hap­pen­ing is slim. Lacy is in a time­share with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Pro­sise. Un­less he scores a short­yardage touch­down, he won’t see enough touches to make an im­pact.
