THURSDAY NIGHT PREVIEW:
GREEN BAY PACKERS AT SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
November 15, 2018
Week 11 kicks off on Thursday, November 15 (8:20 PM ET, FOX/NFL Network/Amazon Prime) with the Green Bay Packers travelling to Seattle to take on the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. Thursday marks the 22nd meeting between the teams (including the playoffs), with Green Bay leading the all-time series, 13-8. In their last game, Packers quarterback AARON RODGERS passed for 311 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay’s 17-9 home win on September 10, 2017.
In Week 10, Packers running back AARON JONES recorded a career-high 172 scrimmage yards (145 rushing, 27 receiving) and two rushing touchdowns in the team’s 31-12 victory against Miami. Rodgers connected with wide receiver DAVANTE ADAMS, who leads the NFC with nine touchdown catches this season, for two scores in the contest and linebacker BLAKE MARTINEZ, whose 221 tackles since 2017 are the most by any player in the NFL, led the team with nine tackles.
Last week, Seattle quarterback RUSSELL WILSON threw three touchdown passes and no interceptions for a 123.2 passer rating and added 92 rushing yards while rookie running back RASHAAD PENNY, the Seahawks’ 2018 first-round pick, rushed for a career-high 108 yards and his first-career touchdown in the Seahawks’ loss at the Los Angeles Rams. The Seahawks are the only team in the NFL to have three different players rush for at least 100 yards in a game this season: Penny, running back CHRIS CARSON and running back MIKE DAVIS. Seattle linebacker BOBBY WAGNER, who led the team with 13 tackles in Week 10, has 365 tackles since 2016, the most in the league over that span.
