Packers prep for Richard Sherman and Hawks D; Jordy Nelson says Pack has more threats than in Week 1
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Seattle’s Richard Sherman may have more to do this time against the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers didn’t throw in the standout cornerback’s direction when the teams met in the season opener in September, a 36-16 win for the Seahawks.
The game plan for the rematch on Sunday in the NFC title game is still in flux.
Still, the offense seems better equipped this time around to face Sherman and Seattle’s swarming defense.
Aaron Rodgers is playing well despite a sore left calf. The Packers are getting contributions in the passing game from options other than receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
Coach Mike McCarthy says that there was never an edict to stay away from Sherman’s side in the opener, that it just happened that way.
