3. Week 15 @ Seattle Seahawks

Playing in Seattle is always a tall task and it's easy to overlook this Seahawks team. They won three of their last four games to close the season and are 7-3 in their last 10 games at home. Just like the Cardinals matchup, this contest comes during a tough stretch in the schedule, potentially giving the Packers a challenge late in the year.

Green Bay returns from the bye to face the Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins, and Detroit Lions before traveling to Seattle. That's four possible playoff teams, three in the NFC, all of whom project to have strong offenses. The Packers will be tired, and it'll be crucial not to slip up against a capable team.

While the Seahawks have just one win in their last six tries against the Packers, Geno Smith, DK Metcalf, and Tyler Lockette are still an experienced trio in the passing game. Under new head coach Mike Macdonald, no one can fully know what to expect from Seattle. It's possible he struggles to replace Pete Carroll, though it's also possible the organization takes a step forward.

Smith is not one of the NFL's best quarterbacks, but he's firmly in the top 15. In the NFL, after a grueling portion of the schedule, he's a scary player to face. He's fearless and has good wide receivers with Kenneth Walker providing a threat out of the backfield.

If this were an early-season game sandwiched around easier teams, I wouldn't be overly concerned. This late in the season after a gauntlet of opponents, it's a bit more concerning.

Overall, this should be an exciting season for Packers fans, but the team needs to win these three games to ensure they don't fall short of expectations.
