After a woeful offensive performance in a 13-7 loss to the Bears on Monday Night Football, the 2-4 Lions will once again be a slight underdog heading into their Week 8 game, according to prognosticators. Seven of ESPN.com's nine panelists think the Seahawks will have no problem continuing their impressive season by pulling out the victory, while reporter Adam Schefter was among the two men who believe otherwise.
Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports' weekly panel selected the Lions to defend their home field after a disheartening loss, even though his two colleagues, Mike Silver and Les Carpenter, opted to go with Seattle and Carroll's rock-solid defense.
Six of CBSSports.com's experts also chose the Seahawks this week, as only Pete Prisco and Dave Richard were brave enough to put faith in Lions head coach Jim Schwartz' sinking team.
