Patriots vs. Seahawks live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Sunday Night Football’ game
Patriots quarterback Cam Newton proved he could still dominate a bottom-tier team last weekend in a win over the Dolphins, but his matchup with the Seahawks on Sunday night should provide a better outlook on what to expect from him this season.
In his New England debut, Newton went 15 of 19 passing for 155 yards through air and rushed for 75 yards and two touchdowns. Seattle’s defense presents a tougher test, not only for the former Panthers star but also for a restructured Patriots team moving on from the Tom Brady era.
The Seahawks, meanwhile, are more secure in their ability to contend this year. They’re still in the heart of Russell Wilson’s fabulous run as their leader and are coming off a comfortable Week 1 win over the Falcons.
