Keep your eye on ...Green Bay's psyche: The Packers looked to have a win last week, but the final play ended in a Pittsburgh touchdown and a heartbreaking loss for Green Bay. Given their tenuous playoff positioning, the Packers cannot afford to let that defeat linger against the reeling Seahawks.

Jim Mora's response: Seattle is coming off a disheartening home loss in which it was pummeled by the 2-12 Buccaneers. It is Mora's responsibility to make sure the team bounces back and has a better performance at Lambeau Field.
