Is anyone else excited for NFL football tonight? Tonight the NFL kicks off their season opener with a potential NFC Championship preview as the defending Super Bowl Champion, Seattle Seahawks face-off against the Green Bay Packers at home in Century Link field.
Tonight’s match-up showcases two of the NFL‘s best quarterbacks with Russell Wilson taking on former MVP, Aaron Rodgers. Russell Wilson has lit-up pre season action with a completion percentage just shy of 80%, while tossing over 400 yards in limited playing time. Wilson has grown considerably every year in his short time in the NFL and could be poised to make a run at the MVP and take home another Lombardi trophy. Aaron Rodgers had another stellar season last year before breaking his collarbone mid-season and is looking to get back into his MVP form as he faces the leagues top-ranked defence in the Legion of Boom.
Not to disappoint fans, the LOB has already began talking as Linebacker Bruce Irvin was quoted as saying “I’m going to pray for him” in regards to the Packers starting center, rookie Corey Linsley. This could cause Rodgers and running back Eddie Lacy trouble in the back field against one of the leagues best defensive fronts. Even with a healthy offensive line, the Seahawks posed a problem for Rodgers the last time they met in 2012 as he was sacked eight times and hit an additional four. That game came down to the wire and ended in the controversial game winning touchdown by Wilson, that still gets disputed as a bad call by replacement officials.
