SEATTLE (AP) — Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson have faced off in a few memorable games in Seattle JK Scott Jersey , from the “Fail Mary” to an unforgettable NFC championship game that sent the Seahawks to their second straight Super Bowl.For the fifth straight regular season — and the seventh time overall since 2012 — Green Bay and Seattle will meet again on Thursday night, but this time it’s positioning in a jumbled NFC playoff picture at stake.Washington, New Orleans, Chicago and the Los Angeles Rams are the division leaders in the NFC, leaving a pile of seven teams — including Seattle and Green Bay — within a couple of games of each other likely competing for the two wild-card spots. And every advantage or tiebreaker in that race — such as a head-to-head victory — could end up being crucial.“I know that this team is very, very capable of doing what we’re setting out to do,” Wilson said. “I think everybody should watch out (for) what we can do.”Seattle (4-5) has dropped two straight after winning four of the previous five, and hasn’t lost three straight since the middle of the 2011 season. Green Bay (4-4-1) snapped a two-game losing streak with a 31-12 thumping of Miami last week.The “Fail Mary” in 2012, the 2014 season opener when Seattle raised its Super Bowl banner and the NFC title game after the 2014 season are the only three times Rodgers has lost to the Seahawks in his career.The past two matchups with Seattle have been among Rodgers’ best, throwing for 311 yards in a 17-9 win to open last season and in 2016 posting a 150.8 passer rating in a 38-10 Green Bay rout.He also has the distinction of having won in Seattle — although that came 10 years ago.“It’s a tough environment like I said but we’ve definitely done it before,” Rodgers said. “You’ve just got to start fast, take care of the football. They’re very good at turning the ball over. I know this is different personnel on their side of the ball than we’ve seen over the years, but they’re still playing really well.”Rodgers and Wilson are being helped this year by improved run games that are among the best in the league. Green Bay’s Aaron Jones leads the NFL in yards per carry Brett Favre Color Rush Jersey , while Seattle has the No. 1 rushing offense and last week rushed for 273 yards against the Rams without starting running back Chris Carson.Here’s what else to watch for on Thursday night:FIRST UPSeattle expects Carson to be available after missing last Sunday’s game with a hip injury. If Carson can go, he will be the starter. But Seattle finally saw the promise of rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny last week when he rushed for 108 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown. Penny showed the burst and big-play ability that had been missing through the first half of the season.Expect Penny to get additional chances no matter Carson’s health as the Seahawks look to use its three-back trio — Carson, Penny, Mike Davis — all of whom have 100-yard rushing games this season.SECONDARY MATTERSAnother week, another lineup shuffle likely in the Green Bay secondary. Kentrell Brice was walking in the locker room with a boot on his left foot early in the week, making it appear unlikely that he will be ready to go on a short turnaround.The Packers traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to Washington two weeks ago. Jermaine Whitehead was released last week. No Brice would mean probably mean veteran Tramon Williams and second-year player Josh Jones starting at safety. Kevin King (hamstring) also appears likely to miss another game, while fellow cornerback Bashaud Breeland (groin) was limited during the week.HERE’S JIMMYTight end Jimmy Graham is returning to Seattle for the first time since signing with the Packers as a free agent in the offseason. With just two touchdowns so far this year, Graham perhaps hasn’t had quite the impact in the end zone as in 2017, when he had 10 scores with Seattle.But with 33 catches through nine games, Graham in on pace to match the production he had with the Seahawks. He’s also taking pride in his run-blocking, and his part in helping Aaron Jones run for career highs of 145 yards and two scores last week.“I know everybody knows me for running go routes and snagging touchdowns, but I think I’ve dedicated myself to the run, to being a part of that because I’m a tight end now ,” Graham said on Sunday. “For us to be successful I’ve got to do those things and I’ve got to be good at them.”QUICK TURNAROUNDBecause of the quick turnaround from last Sunday several players have been ruled out. Along with Brice and King, the Packers have also ruled out wide receiver Randall Cobb and linebacker Nick Perry.Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright was listed as doubtful because of a knee injury that knocked him out of last Sunday’s game early. Carroll said Wright would be a game-time decision. Seattle sat Carson and guard D.J. Fluker against the Rams and both appear set to play against the Packers. After suffering a Sunday night loss at the hands of the Chicago Bears last week, the Minnesota Vikings’ prime time struggles this season were brought to light with a third loss of that variety. Perhaps lost in the continuous ebb and flow of the Vikings’ current campaign is their pass coverage issues in the first half of games as well as at U.S. Bank Stadium.Certainly, that is something the Green Bay Packers will be looking to exploit this weekend.Minnesota has played an even five games on the road and five at home in 2018. Although they are 3-2 in those games, the Vikings have seen drastically different outputs in defending the pass on their home turf and on the road.Vikings’ 2018 Pass Defense Splits from Pro Football ReferenceLocationCompletionsAttemptsCmp %YardsYards/AttemptTDINTFirst DownsRateAdj. Net Yds/AttemptLocationCompletionsAttemptsCmp %YardsYards/AttemptTDINTFirst DownsRateAdj. Net Yds/AttemptAlthough there have been 38 more total pass attempts on the road against the Minnesota defense over the course of the season, the Vikings have allowed a staggering 419 more yards at home in addition to a whopping seven more touchdowns. A quarterback rating 17 points higher also points to the Vikings’ defense being susceptible at home. Oddly, Minnesota has faced a crew of San Francisco, Buffalo, Arizona, New Orleans, and Detroit at U.S. Bank Stadium. With the exception of the Saints, all four other teams have faced massive struggles on the offensive side of the ball this season. Surely, a Packers offense with its season on the line could pose a legitimate threat on Sunday night.Another potential advantage for Green Bay would be an early lead. In the previous matchup between the two teams this season in week two Bart Starr Jersey , the Packers were able to take a 17-7 lead into halftime behind a blocked punt recovery for a touchdown and two scoring drives in five first-half possessions. All three drives without points were destroyed by either penalties or untimely sacks. While Green Bay was able to successfully move the ball on Minnesota defense with a quicker passing game, only a well-orchestrated second drive of the game reached the end zone. For the Packers to win on Sunday, they must once again jump out to an early lead with the Vikings’ rocky first half numbers versus the pass.Vikings’ 2018 Pass Defense Splits from Pro Football ReferenceHalfCompletionsAttemptsCmp %YardsYards/AttemptTDINTFirst DownsRateAdj. Yds/AttemptHalfCompletionsAttemptsCmp %YardsYards/AttemptTDINTFirst DownsRateAdj. Yds/AttemptSimilar to the home versus road statistics above, the Vikings have allowed more passing touchdowns and higher yard per attempt numbers, both adjusted and non-adjusted, in the first half this season. Jumping off the page is the quarterback rating, with opponents sporting a 101.0 mark in the first half of games compared to just 70.9 in the second. A significant reason behind that gap is the interception rate, as the Minnesota defense has forced eight interceptions in the second half and just two in the first two quarters. The Vikings have also registered a striking 13 sacks in the third quarter of games this season, six more than in any other quarter. It becomes apparent that the Packers will be far more likely to pick up a crucial divisional win if they can expose the Vikings’ defense before they make halftime adjustments.While Anthony Barr figures to boost the Vikings’ pass rush after a three-game hiatus, the Packers were successful against a fully healthy Minnesota squad in week two. Although personnel is different now for both teams with Mike Hughes on injured reserve for Minnesota and Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb missing significant time for Green Bay, there should be opportunities for players like Equanimeous St. Brown and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to make early-game impacts in the passing game. And with Aaron Jones available this time around, the Packers have an opportunity to be more balanced and further add to the Vikings’ defensive woes against the pass on their home field this Sunday night.
