NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about two things that could spoil Seattle’s chances of coming away with a win in their opening game against the Carolina Panthers this coming Sunday. A combination of an early start time on the road as well as a depleted defensive line (No Bruce Irvin, Chris Clemons, Jordan Hill or Cliff Avril, more than likely) going up against Cam Newton could have the Seahawks leaving the East Coast with a bad taste in their mouths.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you three things to watch out for when the Ducks travel east to take on the Virginia Cavaliers. Fresh of a 66-3 blowout of the Nicholls State Colonels, Oregon will be facing different conditions against the Cavaliers in both terms of game atmosphere, temperature, and style.

Harang will get the start in the series finale.

First rumored to be heading to the Cleveland Browns on Monday, it was then announced the trade was rescinded because he failed a physical that was required to complete the trade.
