NFL Power Rankings Week 14 2022, Seattle Seahawks VS Carolina Panthers
Seattle Seahawks Form
The Seattle Seahawks snapped out of a two-game losing streak last time out by beating the Los Angeles Rams 27-23. The victory improved their record from the past ten games to 6-4. They are also 3-2 in the last five at home.
The offense has continued to torment opposing defenses consistently, averaging 27.0 points in the last five matches. This leaves the Seattle Seahawks’ tally for the season at 26.5 points overall. The art of defending isn’t something the Seattle Seahawks excel in though. By allowing 25.3 points per game, their defense has been below average compared to the rest of the league this year.
2021 was a year of doom and gloom for the Seattle Seahawks. A 7-10 record left the home team fourth in the NFC West and out of the playoffs. However, they entered this season billed as an early postseason threat, and judging by their 7-5 start this time around, they’re on target to do just that.
Carolina Panthers Form
The Carolina Panthers went 4-8 for the season last week by defeating the Denver Broncos 23-10. In their past ten matches, they’ve gone 4-6 and are also 0-5 in their last five on the road.
The Carolina Panthers bring an offense that has struggled to click into gear this season, putting up just 19.2 points per game. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The visitors have given up 23.4 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 22.2 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.
In 2021, the Carolina Panthers came home in fourth place in the NFC South standings after going 5-12 across all games. The visitors naturally hope to go even better this season. However, like every other team in the NFL, sealing a spot in the playoffs during this regular season is the first and foremost priority for now.
Seattle Seahawks VS Carolina Panthers H2H history
The Seattle Seahawks won by a 24-30 scoreline the last time they played the Carolina Panthers at the Bank of America Stadium, which also meant the required total of 43.5 went over. In eight of the past 13 meetings between the Seattle Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers the total went over 43.5 points.
One key problem the Carolina Panthers have struggled to fix in this series is how their defense has often floundered against the Seattle Seahawks offense, having allowed 23.2 points on average in the last five matchups alone.
