Watch 2013 Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers

The Seattle Seahawks begin their quest to reach the Super Bowl when they play against the Carolina Panthers in a week one NFL Sunday Football match up. Russell Wilson led his starters to dominating performances during the preseason and hope that carries forward, while the Panthers hope to cut short their Playoffs drought before it gets any longer. The game’s start time on the NFL schedule is 1pm EST with live online streaming info below.

Seattle enters this season having won a road Playoff game last season and showing that they have the pieces in place to make a run for the Super Bowl. That Russell Wilson showed he had versatility and an accurate arm as a rookie quarterback, and running back Marshawn Lynch ran over opponents for 1,590 yards after the regular season concluded. The Seahawks offense is a force to be reckoned with.

As this season starts, the Seahawks are without their big free agent acquisition in wide receiver Percy Harvin. He’s currently on the physically unable to perform list and is expected to miss at least the first half of the season. Even so, Seattle has their strong and balanced secondary returning that ranked sixth in the league against the pass last year and is expected to do even better this year.

Carolina comes in understanding that the Seahawks have dropped six straight road games to open seasons and historically they have been prone to penalties on the road. Last season, the Panthers could only muster 190 total yards of offense against the Seahawks, not even close to enough to win. The Panthers will be looking to avoid a third straight 2-8 start.

A big question mark for the Panthers is which Cam Newton will show up. Newton has shown flashes of brilliance during his young career, but he’s also shown poor decision making skills at times and has a losing 13-19 record as a starter. New offensive coordinator Mike Shula might help Newton get back on track. If he can’t, then Carolina might be looking in another direction by season’s end.

The Seahawks are the better team on paper and it’s about time they snap their road losing record in week one. I predict they will win a tight game by a score of 20-17.
