Seattle Seahawks at home
This one is a no-brainer.
While things may change by the time the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks hit the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, this is our top game of the the 2015 season the Packers must win.
Like the Niners, the Seahawks have given the Packers and their fans nothing but headaches ever since that Fail Mary back in 2012.
That was capped by the Championship Game a few weeks ago.
We all know what happened … we’re all still sick about it … and we all feel that it was the game that kept the Green Bay Packers from becoming World Champs.
If that’s all going to melt away, it would only occur if the Packers can find a way to beat the Seahawks in 2015.

The good news is that the Packers play Seattle on their home turf … a place where they are as successful as the Seahawks are in their home with their 12th Man.
No matter at what point these two teams meet in 2015, this will be hyped beyond belief.
We’ll all have to live through the lowlights of the Championship Game; we’ll all have to struggle with our feelings about botched onside kick recoveries, two-point conversion mishaps and an overtime when the Packers didn’t even touch the ball.
It was brutal. We will never forget.
Our hope is that the Packers players and coaches will also head into this matchup with redemption on their mind.
The only way to reverse the sour taste that we all have in our mouths at this point is for the Packers to take care of business against the NFC Champion and come away with a win at Lambeau Field.
That’s why this is our top “must-win” game of 2015.
