The Seahawks have a bye this week, but you're still going to be watching football. If you're in the Seattle area, the two games you'll be getting on cable this morning are the Panthers vs. Ravens and Packers vs. Bears. Here's scouting interests with regards to the Seahawks:

10AM: Carolina at Baltimore (CBS) -- This game is meaningful because Seattle heads down to Charlotte Week 8 to face off against Cam Newton and the Panthers' tough defense. The Panthers are giving up a surprising 6.3 yards per carry against opposing rushing attacks, which is worst in the NFL, and their rush defense DVOA is 29th. Currently, Seattle is first in the NFL in rush DVOA. This is something to monitor, because I think the ability to rush on this Panthers team will come into play in the two teams' future matchup.

10AM: Green Bay at Chicago (FOX) -- This game is not overly helpful for Seattle fans looking to scout future opponents, unless you're looking far enough forward to consider the Playoffs. At this point, the Bears look like the more likely Playoff team, but Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have their backs against the proverbial wall. Regardless, it should be a fun game.
