On Sunday, October 7th, the Carolina Panthers host the Seattle Seahawks at 4:05PM Eastern Time at the Bank of America Stadium. This game will be part of the fifth week of the regular season and although these teams haven't faced each other too often, they do have somewhat of a history. The last time that they went head to head was in Seattle in 2010. The Panthers took quite a beating that day, with the game ending 31 to 14. Carolina lost to the Seahawks once in in 2006 during the NFC Championship, with a final this time of 23 to 14.
However, the Panthers should be concentrating on the future. Carolina is looking at a 1-4 record to start if they can't prevail against Seattle. However, for the Seahawks, they need a win as well. They don't often play well on the road and so Carolina has an opportunity for a win. Seattle does have a strong defense with a lot of man-to-man coverage, which means that they can force the QB on the other side to make a mistake. Cam Newton is going to have to make sure that no mistakes are made during this head to head with the Seahawks.
