Seahawks Vs Packers Spread, ATS Pick & TV InfoNoah Williams
The Green Bay Packers are in a must-win situation as they host the Seattle Seahawks in what is predicted to be a snow game. According to Weather.com, there is a 90 percent chance that snow will hit Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Sunday. In all, 3 to 5 inches are expected. The projected high temperature? 32 degrees.

Luckily, both quarterbacks — Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson — are equipped with strong enough arms to deal with the wintery conditions. The Seahawks are happy to have rusher Thomas Rawls back to help in the snowy conditions, while the Packers struggling rush attack may be their Achilles heel in this tilt. Weather.com projects the winds to be at just 5-10 miles per hour, so Green Bay fans may be spared a humiliation.
With that being said, the weather could, in theory, impact the Seahawks more than the Packers, because the Seahawks don’t play in snow as often.
