Four bold predictions for the Packers’ divisional-round game against the Seahawks.

Three years on from the Green Bay Packers‘ last playoff appearance, and five years after the NFC Championship debacle against the Seattle Seahawks, the Pack are back in the postseason. And their first game gives them an opportunity to get revenge on the Seahawks for ending their Super Bowl dreams back in 2015.

It’s going to be a fascinating contest on Sunday evening between two teams that know how to win close games. Or “win ugly”, as others might say. That’s not a bad thing when it comes to winning playoff football, as the Seahawks showed with their road victory over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday.

Green Bay has been dominant at home this season, and the same is true in recent games against Seattle at Lambeau Field. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur will be hoping that can continue at least one more time and his team can get back to the NFC Championship Game, the hurdle they fell at during two of their past three playoff runs.

Ahead of another chapter in this recent rivalry, let’s preview this matchup. It could be a close game, and here are my four bold predictions for the divisional-round contest between Green Bay and Seattle.
