The Panthers were 3-8-1 at one point in the season, and one of those losses was a 13-9 loss to the Seahawks. Since then, things have gotten a lot better for the Panthers, as they have won their past five games, including the wildcard win over the Cardinals.
At one point, the defending Super Bowl Champions were 3-3 and reeling. They flipped a switch and finished the season 9-1, including six straight wins, most of which were in convincing fashion. Their defense especially came alive -- during their six-game winning streak, they allowed a total of 39 points, or just 6.5 points per game. Yowsa! Seattle is a much better team than the competition Carolina faced during their winning streak. This will by far be the most lopsided-projected game of the weekend. Seahawks 31, Panthers 10
