The Green Bay Packers are in the midst of a painfully short week as they prepare for their week 11 contest. The NFL scheduling department gave them a brutal draw, as they have a cross-country flight on short rest, playing in Seattle on Thursday Night Football just four days and a few hours after hosting the Miami Dolphins in week ten.
This matchup with the Seattle Seahawks is the latest in a fascinating rivalry, one that over the past decade has been dominated by the home team. In fact, it has been almost exactly ten years since the visiting team won — the Packers beat the Seahawks in Seattle on October 12, 2008.
This week’s game will be just the second time the two teams have played on a Thursday, however; the first such contest came in week one of 2014, when the Seahawks were coming off a victory in Super Bowl XLVIII. Seattle won that contest 36-16, which effectively gave them the right to host that season’s NFC Championship Game. In that game, the Packers held a 19-7 lead early in the fourth quarter before [REDACTED]. That was the last time the two teams met in Seattle, with the last three games all coming at Lambeau Field.
On Thursday, fans across the U.S. will be able to watch the nationally-broadcast game through a variety of methods, but primarily over-the-air on FOX. Here’s our Game Primer to prep you for everything you’ll need to tune in this week.
