The Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks will kick off the NFL’s Week 11 action with a game from CenturyLink Field on Thursday.
Green Bay comes into this one at 4-4-1 on the year. The Pack tied Minnesota early in the season, and have fallen to the Redskins, Lions, Rams and Pats, but otherwise beaten the Bears, Bills, 49ers and Dolphins.
In the Miami game, Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers put up 199 yards and two scores, and Aaron Jones led the rush with 145 yards and two TDs. Leading the receivers for the Packers was Davante Adams with 57 yards and two TDs off four grabs.
Over on the Seahawks’ side, they’re 4-5 this season. The Seattle wins have come against the Cowboys, Cardinals, Raiders and Lions, but they’ve lost to the Broncos, Bears, Rams (twice) and Chargers.
In that second Rams game, Seattle QB Russell Wilson threw for 176 yards and three scores, while Rashaad Penny logged 108 yards and a TD to lead the rush. Tops in receiving was Tyler Lockett with five grabs for 67 yards and a TD.
The Packers are 4-1 ATS in the last five Thursday games and 8-17 ATS in the last 25 in November. Green Bay is 1-5 ATS in their last six road games and 0-4 ATS in their last four on turf.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks are 7-0-1 ATS in their last eight Thursday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five versus the NFC. Seattle is 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and the under is 4-0 in their last four Thursday games.
Green Bay is an odd animal this year. At times it seems Rodgers carries the team on his back, and at others it seems like they’ve got a complete roster. The Packers don’t have a lot of difficulty dispatching lesser or mediocre teams, but they’re certainly not in the elite class right now.
Seattle has shown some flashes this year but really hasn’t done too well against anyone of consequence—but they did play the Rams very, very tough. Still, this should figure to be a pretty fun game to watch. All in all, I think the Packers have the edge on the cover here.
