The Seahawks had a rough Week 1 performance while losing 30-13 at home to the Los Angeles Rams. However, they picked themselves up in Week 2, earning a clutch 37-31 overtime road win at the Detroit Lions.
Meanwhile, the Panthers got run over in their season opener at the Atlanta Falcons. Carolina’s rookie quarterback, Bryce Young, through a pair of interceptions, and the team had three total turnovers in a 24-10 loss. The Panthers’ Week 2 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football is still to come.
The Seahawks lived up to expectations in Week 2 after sleepwalking through their opening contest. With that momentum and home crowd on their side, they’ll now face a rookie quarterback and a team traveling across the country on a shortened week.
Pick: Seahawks -4.5
