Week 8: vs Seattle Seahawks
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Carolina's offense went from finding a rhythm vs. Cincinnati (during a 37-37 OT tie game) to getting blown out (10-38 scored by the first team offense before the second-string tacked on a late TD to make it 17-38 in the crushing loss to Green Bay last week). Cam Newton (17/31 for 205 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -25, with 7/41/0 rushing to his credit) had an O.K. outing, but O.K. doesn't do it against the Packers in Green Bay. As usual, Greg Olsen (eight targets for 8/105/0 receiving) and Kelvin Benjamin (six for 3/61/1 receiving) saw most of the action for the Panthers' receiving corps.
The Seahawks' D is also in a funk after having dropped two straight games, allowing 21/32 for 239 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions to Tony Romo (with one sack for -11 yards) and then 19/22 for 170 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions to the Rams last week (86.3 completion % for those keeping score at home). Seattle is not able to assert their usual defensive dominance over the middle weeks of October.
On balance this looks like a neutral matchup for the home-team Panthers.
