These teams have met in the playoffs the last two seasons, developing a nice out of the division rivalry.
Both have beaten the other on the way to Super Bowl and this game was probably thought to have been pivotal in determining the best team in the NFC this season. It has not turned out that way.
Kick off is set for 8:30 PM ET with both teams looking to rebound from losses.
Carolina is teetering under .500 and another one probably guarantees no return to the playoffs.
Carolina squandered a fourth quarter lead in a very entertaining game against Oakland on Sunday – something that really hasn’t happened over the last couple of seasons.
Cam Newton had one of his better games throwing the ball but the Carolina running attack has been in neutral most of the season. They just can’t grind out victories when they have the lead like they used to.
If you got the right number Carolina cashed for you but their loss probably means they are not heading back to the playoffs for a shot at returning to the Super Bowl.
The Panthers success of late has been built upon one of the best defenses in the NFL.
This year they have been below average. Losing Josh Norman in the offseason hurt them more than they are willing to admit but not as much as missing LB Luke Kuechly now – he is in the concussion protocol so it is difficult to know when he will return.
Without a strong defense it is hard to get excited about Carolina when they are playing good competition because then it all falls on Cam.
It still looks like the Seahawks will win the NFC West but last week was a game that got away from them at Tampa. They not only lost the game but the only scored 5 points, none in the second half.
For a very good team Seattle has had way too many games where they look really bad – this is the third game this season they have failed to score a TD and as good as Russell Wilson is I think he is missing not having Beast Mode to balance the attack.
Last week was by far his worst game of the season and you have to think he is going to bounce back at home.
The Seattle defense is tops in the league giving up just 17ppg.
They keep the team in the game even when the offense has sputtered.
Seattle is 5-0 at home this season and that defense has been key. Michael Bennett has not been a force at rush end this season due to injuries but others have stepped up. Cliff Avril has 10 sacks.
The secondary, featuring the Legion of Boom is as good as ever. Folks are still talking about that lick Earl Thomas put on Gronk.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Seahawks -7
The opponent and venue and the fact they were embarrassed last week should produce a maximum effort from Seattle. I do not see the Panthers being able to match that effort.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Seattle 28 – Carolina 16
Can Newton vs. Russell Wilson is always intriguing, Newton vs the Seahawks is a much tougher battle. In this disappointing season Carolina will come up short.
