First up: The Seattle Seahawks visit the Carolina Panthers. The stakes couldn't be higher as the defending NFC champs visit the conference's top seed. Yesterday, both home teams prevailed...will that trend continue? From NFL.com This is a matchup worthy of the Super Bowl. Along with Arizona, Carolina and Seattle are two of the three best teams in the league. And they are mirror images with underrated passing attacks, complex running games, and defenses with depth at every position. The Panthers and Seahawks matchup has quietly developed into one of the NFL's best rivalries since Russell Wilson was drafted. This will be the sixth meeting in four years and the second year in a row they meet in the playoffs. While the Panthers didn't win one of those games until their Week 6 comeback in Seattle, almost every game has been close. Four of the five games were decided by less than five points. This matchup is recipe for low scores and fourth-quarter drama. If you are looking for a rivalry to replace Manning vs. Brady, this is the best candidate.
