Why this game is intriguing: Perhaps all those worrying about the Packers' offense can simmer down. Sure, Green Bay struggled against the 49ers, but San Francisco's defense makes everyone uncomfortable. The way the Packers played in the win over Chicago was more like it, but this is an undercover tough game. Seattle can be a miserable place to play for a visiting offense, especially one that relies on communication. Aaron Rodgers will have his work cut out for him. That could mean good things for the Seahawks, who served notice by thumping the Cowboys.
What to watch: Seattle might hold one key to slowing down a fiercely productive Green Bay pass rush: They can run, as the Cowboys found out. Marshawn Lynch's beast mode is always available, and quarterback Russell Wilson has done his part early on. Throw in some improved health on Seattle's offensive line, and the Packers will be hard-pressed to duplicate their impressive Week 2 performance. Of course, the Packers have four more days to prepare than the Seahawks do, so who knows what they could unveil? Defensive coordinator Dom Capers might have a few surprises for Seattle's rookie signal-caller.
