Following their wild-card win at Philadelphia, last week do the Seahawks merit serious respect. Seattle is a bona fide Pro Football betting playoff threat. It begins with quarterback Russell Wilson. Of course, Wilson is a grade-A impact player. But so is Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay enjoyed a remarkable resurgence this year under first-year head coach Matt Lafleur. Now comes the challenge of overcoming some metrics that leave doubts about the Pack’s championship ability. Green Bay has had some defensive lapses along the way. Most important of all is that the Packers consistently beat the spread.
