I picked the Hawks to win this game. Carolina isn't exactly a tough road stadium to play in, I remember watching that Thursday night game against NY, and it didn't seem like a lot of noise to me. That and Carolina's record at home I think isn't that great.
When you look at the two defenses, obviously Seattle's is better in both passing and the run. It all comes down to the wild card that is Cam Newton and Seattle's ability to control him in the read option scheme.
Carolina's backfield can't inspire much confidence, and I think Wilson, if he finds passing lanes, can put up good numbers.
I don't know how good Seattle is on ST but Carolina's been pretty bad on coverage and returning kicks.
You guys think I'm about right on all that?
Houston Texans fan and realist.
