Game To Watch:

Green Bay Packers - Seattle Seahawks

It's being called the "Revenge Of Fail Mary" as the Packers and Seahawks meet for the first time since the epic failure of replacement officials occurred in 2012. The 12th man will be even louder as the excitement over the Seahawks receiving their Super Bowl rings and the kick off of the NFL's 2014 season converge at Century Link Field.  Both teams are expected to challenge for the NFC title and a trip to Super Bowl XLIX, so this may not be the final meeting this year for the two teams.  Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense - the Legion of Boom and the 12th man, there is no better way to kickoff the 2014 season.

Game To Skip:

It's the opening weekend, everyone is 0-0 and holding on to some hope, so sit back and enjoy the return of the NFL.

Each week NFL writers for VAVEL Sports will be making their picks for every NFL game during the season.
