NFL Betting Preview: Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks – Sunday, November 14, 2021

by Spooky Express | November 11, 2021 |

The big question heading into the week 10 Seahawks at Packers matchup is if we’ll see a Russell Wilson vs. Aaron Rodgers battle, or will it be Geno Smith vs. Jordan Love? Both star QBs (Wilson and Rodgers) seem to be more likely than not to play in this game, Wilson returning from a finger injury and Rodgers from COVID protocols. 

This matchup is still very intriguing for the simple fact that Wilson hasn’t played in over a month, and Rodgers will have missed ten days of practice and team activities by the time he’s first available to be cleared on Saturday. It’s hard to find two other QBs (besides Tom Brady) that are more adaptable to this adversity, however.

At 3-5, it’s not completely out of the question that the Seahawks could get on a run and make a playoff push, but that would make a win in Green Bay Sunday mandatory. Plus, for all intents and purposes, Seattle is likely home for the postseason, if anything, just because Arizona (8-1) and the Rams (7-2) are having such great years in the NFC West. 

Even so, it will be good to get Wilson back under center for Seattle. Geno Smith went 1-2 in his absence, but both of those losses were by a FG, 23-20 at Pittsburgh and 13-10 vs. New Orleans. Seattle did dominate Jacksonville 31-7 in their last game on Halloween and had their bye last week to have extra prep for Green Bay.

The Packers likely would have come out with a different result if Rodgers had been able to play in last week’s 13-7 loss to the Chiefs in Kansas City. Love was 19/34 for 190 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT, which is about as good as you can expect for a guy making his first NFL start. 

Banking that Rodgers gets cleared gives the Packers much better value vs. Seattle – obviously – because when we last saw him in action, he was leading Green Bay to a 24-21 win in Arizona to handle the Cardinals their first loss of the season. That was without some key targets in Davante Adams, Marquez-Valdes Scantling, and Allen Lazard, who all returned to the team last week.

Sure there are some questions surrounding the Green Bay QB situation, but Seattle has those same issues with Wilson returning. Ultimately the Packers defense held the Chiefs to 13 points last week while Patrick Mahomes threw for just 166 yards. There’s your X-factor.
