Pan­thers at Sea­hawks 4:05 p.m. SEA by 7

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Seat­tle is a big fa­vorite, which might seem odd given that it is 2-3 while Car­olina is 4-0 and seek­ing a team-record ninth straight reg­u­lar sea­son win. But the Pan­thers’ one loss since last Novem­ber was a 31-17 play­off de­feat in Seat­tle. Mak­ing mat­ters tougher for Car­olina, Mar­shawn Lynch is ex­pected to re­turn for the Sea­hawks fol­low­ing a two-game ab­sence be­cause of a ham­string in­jury. It’s prob­a­bly too much to ex­pect Car­olina to run the ball well at Seat­tle, but the divi­sion of la­bor among its RBs could be in­ter­est­ing. Set­ting aside Cam New­ton’s ex­ten­sive us­age in the ground game, Jonathan Stew­art dom­i­nated the work in the first three games, but in the team’s most re­cent win, rookie backup Cameron Ar­tis-Payne got eight car­ries to Stew­art’s 10.
