The Green Bay Packers played the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1 as the first game of the season. This week, the Packers will look to avenge their 36-16 loss in the opener. Both teams are different teams than in that first meeting, but Bovada sees the Seahawks as 7.5 point favorites at home.
The Bears-Packers game had something for everyone going into the game.
Bears coach Marc Trestman said the team’s season-ending loss to the Packers was “very disappointing,” and called Green Bay’s first-half fumble return for a touchdown while on offense “a debacle,” as the entire defense stood around and watched their rivals make an easy score.
Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin picked up a loose ball and ran it for a touchdown after Julius Peppers knocked the ball out of Aaron Rodgers’ hands.
Le’Veon Bell scored a 1-yard touchdown with 1:28 left and the Pittsburgh Steelers withstood Green Bay’s last throw into the end zone, dealing the Packers’ playoff hopes a blow with a wild, 38-31 win Sunday.
Injuries in the NFL are inevitable, but this year they come in bunches.
