Green Bay (4-4-1) at Seattle (4-5), 8:20 p.m. on FOX, NFL Network and Amazon. Cheese, beer and Bratwurst meet Grunge, Salmon and Starbucks as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers travel to Seattle to face off against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks at Century Link Field. While the Packers are coming off a huge win at home against Miami at Lambeua Field last Sunday, the Seahawks look to bounce back from their loss to their NFC West rivals the Los Angeles Rams.

Green Bay got back on the winning track at Lambeau Field Sunday afternoon, taking care of Miami 31-12. Rodgers and the Packers led 14-9 at the half, then floored the gas in the second half, outpacing the Dolphins 17-3 in the final 30 minutes of play. Green Bay out-rushed Miami 195-131 with Packers RB Aaron Jones leading all rushers with 145 yards and a pair of TDs (Miami was paced by Frank Gore, who ran for 90 yards), while Rodgers threw for 199 yards with a pair of TDs and no interceptions, despite being sacked twice (Brock Osweiler led Miami with 213 yards of passing with six sacks and an interception). Green Bay went 4 for 10 on third down tries in the land of beer, cheese and Bratwurst (they were 1 of 2 on fourth down) and kept the ball for 27:57, while Miami ruled the clock and held on to the ball for 32:03, while going 4 for 14 on third down, 3 of 4 on fourth down.

Seattle went to Los Angeles for a rematch with the Rams at the Coliseum and the Rams would make the sweep of the series a reality in sunny California, coming up on the short end of a 36-31 NFC West loss on the road. The Seahawks led 14-7 at the end of the first quarter, then watched the Rams chip away at the lead and trailed 17-14 at the intermission. Seattle would then make things close and would pull themselves to within five with 1:56 left in regulation when TE Mike Davis and Wilson connected on a 3-yard TD toss. The Seahawks would eventually get the ball back after the Rams went three and out and took the ball on their 35-yard line. Seattle advanced to as close as Los Angeles’ 35-yard after the two teams got offsetting penalties and could not dent the end zone after three Wilson passes fell incomplete.

Sunday’s contest had a pair of running backs breach the 100-yard barrier; Seattle’s Rashaad Penny ran for 108 yards, while Rams RB Todd Gurley III led everyone with 120 yards (both men had a rushing TD in the contest) as the Seahawks out-rushed the Rams 273-149. Rams QB Jared Goff threw for 318 yards and a pair of TDs, while Wilson threw for 176 yards and three TDs (Wilson was sacked four times, Goff was sacked twice, neither man threw an interception). Seattle went 2 of 9 on third down and 0 of 1 fourth down, while keeping the ball for 30:37, while the Rams kept the ball for 29:23, going 5 for 10 on third down tries.

The Packers lead the series 11-7, they’ve outscored the Seahawks 462-360 and have won the last three meetings, including taking a 17-9 win at Lambeau Field last year (Seattle’s last win over the Packers came in the Pacific Northwest in 2014 by a final of 36-16).

They met at Lambeau in week one and Green Bay erased a 3-0 halftime deficit (the teams played a scoreless first quarter) and took a 7-3 lead with 10:33 left in the third when RB Ty Montgomery scored from a yard away after the Packers got a turnover deep in Seattle territory. After Blair Walsh kicked his second field goal of the day later in the third, Rodgers and Jordy Nelson connected on a 32-yard TD toss with 17 seconds left in the quarter. Walsh and Mason Crosby would exchange field goals in the fourth quarter to round out the scoring in the season opener.

While Seattle out-rushed Green Bay 90-84, Montgomery led all rushers with 54 yards, while Rodgers burned Seattle with 311 yards (Wilson threw for 158 yards in the contest; Wilson was sacked three times with no interceptions, while Rodgers was sacked four times with an interception). Green Bay went 9 for 16 on third down at Lambeau and kept the ball for 39:13, while the Seahawks kept the pigskin for 20:47, while going 3 for 12 on third down (neither team had a fourth down try).

In the season opener, while neither club covered the 51 over/under, Green Bay did manage to cover the 3-point spread with the 8-point win in the land of beer, cheese and Bratwurst. Seattle in the week 11 opener is favored by 2 1/2 and the over/under’s 49. Seattle’s struggled in their last two games, while Green Bay’s trying to get their NFC North ducks in a row. The Seahawks would love nothing more than revenge against the Packers, while Green Bay wants to prove to them that last year’s win at Lambeau was not a fluke. Packers cover the 2 1/2 in the land of Grunge, Salmon and Starbucks and wins the Thursday night contest.
