Bold predictions for the Carolina Panthers as they look to overcome their significant road issues at the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14. 

After getting additional time to rest and prepare, the Carolina Panthers return from their bye week with a difficult game at the Seattle Seahawks. This is always one of the loudest atmospheres anywhere in the league, which represents another stern test for Steve Wilks‘ men as the interim head coach looks to win the job long-term.

The Panthers have momentum after their convincing win over the Denver Broncos. But there’s been drama at the bye for the second straight year after those in power granted Baker Mayfield his release in pursuit of salvaging whatever faint career hopes remain.

Seattle is punching well above their weight this season. Trading quarterback Russell Wilson for a king’s ransom looks to be going in the team’s favor right now, with veteran Geno Smith enjoying the best campaign of his career by a considerable margin en route to some potential individual accolades once the season concludes.

This is yet another fascinating game with big repercussions. Here are four bold predictions for the Panthers at the Seahawks in Week 14.

Terrace Marshall Jr. gains career-high in receiving yards

The increasing emergence of Terrace Marshall Jr. since Matt Rhule was fired makes it even more perplexing how he wasn’t used sooner under the previous head coach. That doesn’t matter now – what’s important is the Carolina Panthers giving the former second-round selection all he can handle in the coming weeks in the hope he can blossom into a legitimate No. 2 receiving option behind D.J. Moore.

Marshall’s current career-high for receiving yards is 86, which he attained during Carolina’s dramatic loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8. And there’s a chance for the LSU product to have a big day at the Seattle Seahawks if Sam Darnold lives up to his end of the bargain.
