When Seattle has the ball ...
Seattle run offense vs. Green Bay run defense
Running the football against an improved Packers run defense will be a gut check for the Seattle offense. The mid-season acquisition of DT Grady Jackson has helped solidify the Green Bay run defense, and defensive coordinator Ed Donatell has had to call fewer run blitzes to plug the interior. Green Bay can get to the edges quicker and they are in much better position to drop into coverage off play action when they don't have to bring linebackers or safeties on run blitzes.
