Randy’s Pick

Lumen Field remains a tough place to play, and you'd assume a road overtime win over the Lions will get the Seahawks a needed shot in the arm coming back home. The Carolina Panthers haven't done much offensively through 2 games, and it's hard to believe things change with a washed up Andy Dalton at quarterback. The Panthers are 25th in run defense, which isn't ideal when the Seahawks have a mobile quarterback as well in Geno Smith. This feels like a spot where the Seahawks can get rolling and get a comfortable home win under their belt to feel good about themselves. I'll take Seattle by a touchdown.
