It’s easy to pencil the Seahawks as back-to-back Super Bowl champs after their 36-16 beat-down of the Packers last night. Or to think Green Bay is a shadow of the franchise that won it all in 2011 and hasn’t reached the conference championship since.
At some point they will take a moment to acknowledge the celebration taking place around them. Pete Carroll and his team will step back from an offseason focused on forgetting what happened in 2013 and for a brief second appreciate the festivities commemorating Seattle’s first Super Bowl title.
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.

Meet the NFL players you need to follow this football season.
The NFL regular season is getting closer by the day as teams are now finished with their respective training camps and preparing for the all-important third preseason game. Fans are very lucky these days because every single preseason game is made available to them, whether it be online or on television. That gives fantasy football players the opportunity to scout everyone and anyone that they may consider drafting.
NFL training camps are beginning to wrap up as teams continue making their way through the preseason. It’s a time for players and coaches to sharpen their skills in preparation for the upcoming season. It’s also a time for fans to keep track of which players they may want to draft in their fantasy football leagues and which players they want to avoid.
With the NFL season fast approaching, fans are getting ready to root for their favorite teams and enjoy the wonderful thing that is football Sunday during the fall. There is also another thing that gets football fans worked into a frenzy as the season grows closer, and that thing is fantasy football.
It’s a poorly-kept secret that the Seattle Seahawks don’t mind taking a penalty flag or two for pass interference or defensive holding in exchange for five or six no-calls on borderline plays. Supposedly, the NFL will be cracking down on physical play in the defensive backfield. If true-and that’s a big if-it could mean even bigger numbers for the quarterbacks.
Even the NFL’s official Twitter account is piling on Johnny Manziel’s slide in the draft.
