APC Week 11 NFL Picks: Close game expected between Packers & Seahawks

APC is taking the Packers — just barely — in a tough Thursday night game tonight.

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

In week 11, more than any other, it is critical that Acme Packing Company’s weekly game picks get in before kickoff of Thursday Night Football. That is because the Green Bay Packers are playing tonight, suiting up at CenturyLink Field to play the Seattle Seahawks in a battle of mid-tier NFC teams.

The Packers’ travel schedule has been brutal lately, as they flew four hours across two time zones on Tuesday for a game on just three days rest — and after a late afternoon game, no less. It is probably for that reason that APC’s writers are split almost evenly on picking the winner of this game, which sees the Vegas sportsbooks favoring the Seahawks by three points.

Indeed, our writer picks see a pretty close 8-5 vote in favor of the Packers this week. Here’s a look at the full picks:
