It was another Thursday night blowout, as the Packers dominated the Vikings 42-10 last night in Green Bay. The Packers moved to 3-2, while Minnesota is 2-3, struggling on offense without Teddy Bridgewater, who was inactive with a sprained ankle.
These two bitter rivals will lock horns at Lambeau Field tonight in a key early-season NFC North showdown.
Will this contest between NFC North rivals be the first competitive Thursday night game of the season?
It’s easy to pencil the Seahawks as back-to-back Super Bowl champs after their 36-16 beat-down of the Packers last night. Or to think Green Bay is a shadow of the franchise that won it all in 2011 and hasn’t reached the conference championship since.
Brian Baldinger of NFL Network joined Scott, Jeremy and Jason to preview the NFL Opener between the Green Bay Packers and Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Brian believes that tonights game could be great matchup. “We get to see two great quarterbacks on the field in a great environment. I think they picked great matchup to kind of kickoff the season with because anybody who watched Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers in the preseason, they know that these two guys are ready to go, and they have a great surrounding cast around them.”
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
The risk NFL Players take is high, but for the successful players who can stay healthy & deliver for their teams under high pressure the rewards are massive.

It’s a poorly-kept secret that the Seattle Seahawks don’t mind taking a penalty flag or two for pass interference or defensive holding in exchange for five or six no-calls on borderline plays. Supposedly, the NFL will be cracking down on physical play in the defensive backfield. If true-and that’s a big if-it could mean even bigger numbers for the quarterbacks.
