The spotlight will be on the Seahawks once again this weekend as the team tries to bounce back from all the controversy that's been swirling around them recently. They play the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte on Sunday.

The Seahawks have been under intense scrutiny following back-to-back losses and the shocking trade of star receiver Percy Harvin.

For the first time in team history, the Seattle Seahawks have a 4-0 start. KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel calls that a “tremendous start.”

“I thought they were going to stumble in the first game against Carolina, and they nearly did,” he said. “I thought that was going to be a problem, because this team had a lot of things to get right in the exhibition season that I don’t think were quite there, especially in the offensive line.”

CenturyLink Field will be packed and louder than ever on Sunday evening. The Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers in a much-anticipated match-up. 

KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel says this game may very well be a preview of the NFC championship battle this season.
