Seattle dropped a 19-13 decision to St. Louis, despite outgaining the Rams, 319 total yards to 286. Meanwhile, Carolina lost to the Atlanta Falcons on a last-second field goal, after holding a lead late into the fourth quarter.
Two young, athletic quarterbacks with a propensity for turning the ball over will be the focus for this game. Cam Newton improved in that area last week, while Russell Wilson regressed. Thus, the momentum could be on the side of the former, which bodes well for the Panthers.
