In what's already the earliest scheduled game in CenturyLink Field history, it will also have the home-boosting advantage of wind and rain.
The top-seeded Seahawks will host the Packers in weather conditions that greatly favor the defending champions - and could be a part of the reason they're 7.5 point favorites. To top it off, the Packers will have to work through Aaron Rodgers' calf injury, casting doubt over Rodgers' ability to generate enough against a dominant Seahawks defensive unit to win this game.
Green Bay doesn't appear to have the weapons needed to match the depth of Seattle, and we're taking Seattle in this one after a close first half. The Seahawks will pull away, hoist the trophy and move on to Super Bowl XLIX.
Prediction: Seahawks 31, Packers 22
