NFC Championship Picks Analysis: When the Seahawks have the ball they will be challenged by a solid Packers defense that can really get after the QB (44.0 sacks). Russell Wilson is a clutch signal-caller but without a true threat at wideout he will be blitzed often. Wilson will rely on his All-Pro RB Marshawn Lynch () to take the heat off the blitz and wear down the Packers suspect run defense (4.6 yards per carry allowed) with his bulldozing runs.

When the Packers have the ball they will turn to RB Eddie Lacy (1178 yards 4.1 YPC 11 TD) to put the offense on his back with QB Aaron Rodgers (104.9 passer rating) severely limited with a calf injury. Seattle’s defense is a legendary unit that is equally effective against the run (4 rushing TD’s allowed) and pass (63.4 defensive passer rating). A major part of Rodgers game is his ability to throw on the move and against a swarming Seattle pass-rush (44.0 sacks) Rodgers could find himself on the turf early and often. Packers vs Seahawks Vegas Odds Over/Under is at 47.0 points at DIMES.EU

ESPN2 News Bottom Line: Seattle boasts a team just as good as last year’s Super Bowl squad with the exception of their suspect receiving corps. Seattle’s defense is a different form of nasty and it will be too much for a good but not great Packers team. Seattle’s ball-hawking secondary that has notched 28 interceptions will help them win the turnover battle. Bet the Seahawks as the favorites to win by double-digits.
