2. NFC Championship preview? – The Seahawks and Packers look like they are locks to make the playoffs, which means that this game may not be the last time these two teams play against each other this season. Both teams have the look of 10+ win teams and a history of success in the playoffs. Assuming either one of them obtains a top 2 seed in the playoffs and the two of them could see each other in January – or even in the NFC Championship game.
1. Football Is Back – The NFL is a sport that always leaves its fans hungry for more and as soon as the 2013 season ended, people were dying to see what 2014 had in store for them. There are also plenty of questions that need to be answered: Can the Seahawks repeat? Will the Packers return to being a titan in the NFC North despite the rise of the Bears and Lions? Who will be the better back in 2014 – Marshawn Lynch or Eddie Lacy?
All of these great questions, great matchups and potential for a truly remarkable sight are what makes this game as good a game as any to kick off what should be an incredible 2014 season.
