Matchup To Take Advantage Of: Seahawks Pass Rush vs. Packers O-line
Aaron Rodgers‘ blind side is protected by a second-year left tackle, David Bakhtiari, who struggled mightily last season giving up 10 sacks, 28 QB hurries and 13 penalties. Profootballfocus.com rated him as the 60th best tackle in the NFL last year out of the 76 that qualified. The Packers current depth chart has rookie fifth-round pick Cory Linsley starting at center.
Right guard Josh Sitton has given up 15 sacks over the past two years and their most talented blocker, Bryan Bulaga, is coming off back-to-back season-ending injuries. Not to mention the Hawks recorded eight sacks IN THE FIRST HALF the last time these two teams played.
