And this wacky 2012 NFL season continues into the Great Northwest on Monday night.
The Green Bay Packers face the Seattle Seahawks in a game that has more NFC implications than given credit.
For one, it's about maintaining a pace within each division. The Packers need a win to remain atop the NFC North courtesy of the Week 2 tiebreaker over the Chicago Bears.
Seattle, on the flip side, is trying to keep up with the undefeated Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West. Both sides feature upgraded defenses and the offenses provide some intrigue.
Obviously, Aaron Rodgers is the premier player here, but his counterpart in rookie Russell Wilson is legit. To that end, let's break down each aspect of this vital matchup and get a winner.
