Why the Lions can cover
The Lions were impressive on both sides of the ball in their season opener. Offensively, Detroit was balanced, with 253 passing yards and 118 yards on the ground. Defensively, the Lions limited Kansas City’s high-powered offensive attack to just 20 points and 316 yards of total offense.
Quarterback Jared Goff was sharp for Detroit in Week 1. The seven-year NFL veteran completed 22 of 35 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown. Veteran running back David Montgomery, an offseason acquisition, rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. See which team to pick here.
Why the Seahawks can cover
The Seahawks entered the 2023 season with high expectations, but came out flat in Week 1. History has proven that Pete Carroll is one of the more successful coaches in the league when coming off a loss, and his team is led by several proven veterans. Quarterback Geno Smith struggled against the Rams in Week 1, but was a Pro Bowl selection in 2022.
Smith now has one of the top trio of wide receivers in the NFL at his disposal in DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and rookie Jaxon Smith-Njigba. Seattle was limited to 112 passing yards against Los Angeles, which is unlikely to happen again with the amount of talent in its offensive attack. See which team to pick here.
