NFL FREE PICK: Seattle over Green Bay. Latest NFL trends say the Packers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win. Seahawks are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games, 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games on fieldturf, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in Week 3, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 vs. NFC. The Seahawks are for real. The Packers (1-1) are going through some dysfunction as they were still dealing with questions about an incident between Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver James Jones, who accepted blame for the interception that led Rodgers to voice his displeasure with his teammate. The Seahawks' defense, though, caused plenty of problems for Tony Romo and Dallas during Seattle's 27-7 win last Sunday. By comparison, the Seahawks (1-1) ran for 182 yards - 122 from Marshawn Lynch. The 5-foot-11 Wilson, who beat out former Packers backup Matt Flynn for the starting job, acquitted himself nicely last weekend in his home debut, completing 15 of 20 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown without a turnover. It's hardly a coincidence that his first NFL victory came at CenturyLink Field. Including the postseason, the Seahawks have won seven of 11 there and are 15-11 on the banks of Puget Sound since 2009 compared to 6-20 elsewhere, including a 20-16 loss at Arizona in Week 1. Seattle has a 17-8 record on Monday Night Football, the best winning percentage of any team.
