Watch Seattle vs Carolina Live Stream
It’s the last excursion of the normal season for the Seattle Seahawks when they take on the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte on Sunday. The Seahawks (10-3) are searching for their seventh street win this season, which would be an establishment record, while the Panthers (5-8) have lost five of every a column, terminated their lead trainer, and have fundamentally effectively turned the page on this season. The climate at Bank of America Stadium will be a fascinating one, as it could feel practically like an unbiased site game for the Seahawks if Carolina fans remain away in large numbers.
The truth of the fact that it is so difficult to experience a NFL customary season undefeated out and about raised its head for the Seahawks on Sunday night when the lost 28-12 to the Rams. It was an ideal tempest of everything turning out badly for Seattle; running back Rashaad Penny endured a season-finishing knee damage in the primary quarter, and things snowballed from that point. Security Quandre Diggs was a splendid spot, as he had a 55-yard capture return in the second from last quarter for the group’s solitary touchdown and afterward took out another pass on the following belonging. The absence of hostile creation was disturbing since it was the first run through Russell Wilson and Co. didn’t score a touchdown since a 2017 season-opening misfortune at Green Bay.
Carolina had its very own unpleasant evening at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta last Sunday with a 40-20 victory misfortune to the Falcons. Kyle Allen tossed four interferences and was under attack throughout the day and ended up getting sacked multiple times. Carolina’s safeguard couldn’t prevent Atlanta from moving the ball, as Devonta Freeman arrived at the midpoint of 4.9 yards per convey before sitting down and Matt Ryan tossed for 313 yards and two touchdowns, including a 93-yarder to new kid on the block Olamide Zaccheaus. Christian McCaffrey was a brilliant spot for the Panthers with 145 universally handy yards. He’ll have to convey the offense again this week.
Sunday speaks to an opportunity for Seattle to verify a season finisher spot. On the off chance that the Seahawks succeed at Carolina, they can get in relying upon what occurs with the Rams (at Dallas), Vikings (at Chargers), and Packers (versus Bears). In any case, securing situations won’t make any difference except if they set last week’s disillusioning appearing behind them and put everything in order against a group that has nothing left to play for now.
Three Things to Watch
1. Seahawks’ passing game versus Pumas’ protection
This will be a pivotal matchup, as it sets up well for Russell Wilson to set up really large numbers against the Panthers. His hostile line was pushed around a week ago against Aaron Donald and the remainder of the Rams’ cautious front. So this will be a test for this gathering to ricochet once again from a harsh night in Los Angeles. They will be tried by another strong cautious front as Carolina’s 47 sacks on the season trail the primary spot Steelers by only one. Mario Addison and Bruce Irvin have consolidated for 15 of them, so expect those folks to come after Wilson, alongside linebacker Shaq Thompson, who simply earned a monstrous payday.
Wilson’s top objective, Tyler Lockett, preferably will make progress in his arrival from shin damage. He has hushed up the most recent couple of weeks with only 107 yards on eight gatherings and 15 targets aggregate in the course of the last four games. In the mean time, individual wideout DK Metcalf should keep on getting his objectives downfield on Sunday trying to extend the Panthers’ protection, and Josh Gordon should be to a greater extent a factor too to supplant Rashaad Penny’s generation. Carolina positions fifteenth against the pass and has gathered 12 interferences, however this unit gave up some large plays to the Falcons a week ago. Expect Seattle hostile facilitator Brian Schottenheimer to follow cornerback Donte Jackson early and regularly, alongside the remainder of the auxiliary, to perceive what they are made of.
2. Feed Christian McCaffrey
Probably the most ideal approaches to hinder the Seahawks is to have a powerful running back who can move the chains by running or getting drops of the backfield. McCaffrey absolutely fits that bill, as he is third in the group in surging (1,220 yards) and fourth in gatherings (86). He’s No. 1 in yards from scrimmage (1,946) and complete touchdowns (16). Carolina will forcibly feed him the ball, so the key for Seattle’s barrier is to monitor where he is consistently and attempt and point of confinement the dangerous plays. Search for Panthers hostile facilitator Scott Turner to move McCaffrey all around the development to keep the Seahawks protectors on their heels and attempt to get the show on the road to the dynamic running back in space so he can get something going. McCaffrey’s viability will ease the heat off of quarterback Kyle Allen, who has battled in the course of the last a few games since groups have more film on him.
3. Assault Kyle Allen
Discussing Allen, one way Seattle’s barrier can shake off a week ago’s presentation is to overwhelm the line of scrimmage and get after the youthful quarterback. Pass assurance has been an issue for Carolina, who has given up 50 sacks in 13 games, one behind the 32nd-positioned Dolphins. If they are sound and great to go, Jadeveon Clowney and Ziggy Ansah will have a chance to establish the pace with steady weight throughout the evening. Ansah was latent a week ago, and the Seahawks followed through on the cost, as Jared Goff tossed for 293 yards and two touchdowns (but with two block attempts) and wasn’t sacked all game.
Allen has been sacked at least multiple times in each of the 11 of his beginnings and has gone down multiple times in the last four games alone. Subsequently, he has tossed seven capture attempts over that equivalent four-game stretch. Any turnovers Seattle can make could give assistance kick off the offense by giving it a shorter field to work with. At the point when the Seahawks’ guard has clicked at a significant level this season, the formula has been this: control the line scrimmage, produce pressure, and command the turnover fight.
Search for the Seahawks to refocus this week, as they have a lot in question season finisher savvy to not turn out pulled together. The capacity to get off to a fast start will be vital. In the event that Seattle can excel by two scores early, it will likely remove the group from the game — if that even is a factor in any case, thinking about Carolina’s conditions. Russell Wilson ought to have the option to set up respectable numbers against a Panthers protection that has been drifting off course. The Seahawks will up their eleventh win of the period, which likewise would give them an establishment record seventh out and about.
