Seattle Seahawks vs Carolina Panthers takes place on Sunday as the NFL 2013 regular season finally gets underway. This game should provide a great match up of quarterbacks for this early season clash. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
This intriguing game will see Cam Newton go head to head against Russell Wilson. This is a big season for both players, and it will be interesting to see whether one or both of them make big strides forward in their development.
The Seahawks are coming into this season as one of the favorites to go all the way to the Super Bowl this year, and they will be favorites in most people's eyes to get off to a winning start today.
The Panthers meanwhile do not have such high expectations of them, but they will want to get a positive start to the season and will look to turn a few heads this year and surprise many.
For the Seahawks Russell Wilson will be delighted that he gets another season with Marshawn Lynch, and that will be a big plus for the quarterback as he looks to lead the offensive line. At the same time Wilson will have been sad to see Percy Harvin disappear after going down with injury, and that will be seen as one weapon in his armory gone. But at the same time the Seahawks have brought in Christine Michael and that should provide more positives.
Last season the Panthers finished 7-9 in a very disappointing season for them. Newton was good, but many felt that season 2 was a step back from season 1. He will want to turn the screw again for season 3 and make some big advances.
