Jerry Brewer:

Seahawks, 17-6

The Seahawks’ defense heard all preseason what they aren’t, and now they’re hungry to remind everyone of what they are.

Bob Condotta:

Seahawks, 21-13

It won’t always be easy or look pretty, but the Seahawks’ running game and defense should eventually wear down the Panthers.

Jayson Jenks:

Seahawks, 24-17

Carolina is better than you might give them credit for, but Seattle’s defense knows how to bottle up running quarterbacks.

Larry Stone:

Seahawks, 24-10

All you worry-warts can relax: Despite Cam Newton and the dreaded East Coast start, Seattle is not going to open with a stumble.
