The Seattle Seahawks suffered a tragic loss to the St. Louis Rams during the team's first game this NFL season. The controversial loss had the majority of fans and followers of the Seattle Seahawks blaming the coaching staff for failing to foresee the reaction of the St. Louis Rams' to the alleged predictability of the move to use Marshawn Lynch in a crucial moment at overtime. The fact that the St. Louis Rams were confident enough to block all efforts that could put the ball in Marshawn Lynch's hands showed that the Seattle Seahawks might need a revamp in the NFL team's roster and strategies.

However, the Seattle Seahawks are attempting to move on from the loss and remain positive on the next games the NFL team will face. Week 2 of the NFL regular season will allow fans and followers of the sport to witness one of the most highly anticipated games. Following the match against the St. Louis Rams, the Seattle Seahawks will find themselves face to face with the Green Bay Packers.

The Week 2 match of the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday (September 20) is scheduled at 8:30 pm ET. The Green Bay Packers will play host to the Seattle Seahawks at the Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Fans of the NFL could view this event as a repeat of the NFC Conference Championship in the previous NFL season, where the Seattle Seahawks walked away victorious - a feat that Russell Wilson intend to duplicate and one that Aaron Rodgers will attempt to prevent from happening.

With the 34 - 31 OT defeat of the Seattle Seahawks against the St. Louis Rams last Sunday (September 13), the Super Bowl runners up presumably eye their next NFL match as an avenue to appease fans over the disappointing loss and redeem themselves in the league. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will come face to face with Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson, who managed to rake in 32 passes out of 41 for 251.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback also pitched in one touchdown against one interception as well as contributed 31 yards rushing. It could be recalled that Russell Wilson was sacked six times by the St. Louis Rams during the games in the previous NFL season.  Meanwhile, the ground work of Marshawn Lynch covered 73 yards in 18 attempts. As for Jimmy Graham, he pitched in 51 yards and one touchdown in six catches. Jimmy Graham's fourth appearance in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks also included a 7-yard score.

Despite the loss, the Seattle Seahawks remain optimistic on their chances of dominating the NFL this season. "They're arguably one of the better teams we're going to play all year, in our opinion at least, so it's one of those things where you keep battling, you keep facing the challenges," stated Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, referring to the loss of the team to the St. Louis Rams in Week 1 of the current NFL season. He added, "We just came up short."

Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin echoed the same sentiment and shared that the NFL team still have a long way to go before the season's over. He said, "Staying together, staying focused on what we can control. There's a lot of things in this game we did good, there's some things we did not so good, so we'll look at the tape, get better at it, move forward, and do what this team has always done." Baldwin added, "We're so resilient in the fact that, it doesn't matter what adversity we go through, we're going to overcome it, so I have no doubt we're going to overcome it, we've just got to maintain the path we're on."
