Friday Round-Up: John Clayton Previews Seahawks at Panthers

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Friday, November 23 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Clayton Previews Sunday's Game

At 710Sports.com, John Clayton previews this weekend's game between the Seahawks and Panthers at Carolina. The Seahawks sideline reporter looks ahead to Sunday and outlines six storylines to consider when the two teams match up at Bank of America Stadium. Here's some of what Clayton had to say about the Week 12 meeting between the two teams:

  • Last year was the first time since (Russell) Wilson arrived in Seattle that the Panthers and the Seahawks didn’t play each other. The first three Panthers-Seahawks games were played in Charlotte, and Wilson won all three in low-scoring affairs: 16-13, 12-7 and 13-9. The Panthers won in Seattle 27-23 in 2015, but the Seahawks bounced back to beat the Panthers 40-7 at CenturyLink Field in 2016. You would expect Sunday to be a lower-scoring type of game. The Seahawks’ plan is to run the football more than 30 times and try to win the battle along the line of scrimmage. The Panthers are good at stopping the run, though, allowing only 98.5 rushing yards per game. If the Seahawks can establish the run, Wilson might be able to work some play-action pass on a Panthers pass defense that has struggled of late.
  • In back-to-back losses to Pittsburgh and Detroit, the Panthers’ defense hasn’t played to its potential. Missed tackles have been a problem and Carolina has struggled in pass defense. Part of the problem was being on the road, where the Panthers are 1-4. They are 5-0 at home, though, and hope that home-field advantage will prevail.
