This weekend, real professional football finally returns as the NFL begins the 2017 season. Arguably the best matchup on this Sunday’s slate of games involves the Green Bay Packers, as they square off with a team that has become quite the rival — perhaps the Packers’ biggest rival outside of the NFC North.
Green Bay and Seattle are now perennial playoff teams and Super Bowl contenders, and the two teams share plenty of similarities and bonds. One common factor is in the front office, as Seahawks GM John Schneider worked for the Packers for several years before taking over in Seattle. There is also running back Eddie Lacy, who spent four years in Green Bay before signing with the Seahawks this fall.
Check out our podcast preview here with ESPN’s Mina Kimes, and take a look below at how to tune in for Sunday’s game.
