NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Seattle Seahawks by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (10)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 10) - Can they win with longest road trip possible for any team on this side of the pond? Seahawks at Miami.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 12) - Just 1-4 on the road, they can't afford a road loss to Miami on Sunday.
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 12) - Know they can win at home, but how about on the road?
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 11) - Seahawks return from bye to face reeling Miami. Can't afford a misstep here, not when Seattle is still very much in the thick of it in the divisional and wild card races.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 11) - Rookie QB Russell Wilson has thrown eight interceptions this season - and all have come in his five road games. He has thrown 11 of his 15 TD passes at home. His Seahawks travel to Miami Sunday.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 10) - Anyone notice that there's another rookie quarterback out there who has six wins and his team in the middle of the playoff picture?
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 11) - Pete Carroll's group plays some serious defense up in the Pacific Northwest.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 9) - The 'Hawks had a bye last week, but are one tough outfit that will run the ball on any team and play tough defense. Russell Wilson needs to win on the road and they move up.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 11) - A good football team. The defense is suffocating. Rookie QB Russell Wilson is as good as there is at home and about as bad as there is on the road. He needs to play like he's at home all of the time for them to win consistently.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 8) - It's a long trip to South Florida, but the Seahawks may be catching slumping Miami at just the right time.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 12) - Three of next four are on the road, where the Seahawks are 1-4.
