Detroit comes into this game against the Seattle Seahawks flying high after defeating the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs in Week 1. The Seahawks have their work cut out for them. This week Seattle must be prepared to stop a vaunted Lions pass rush.

Aidan Hutchinson will be difficult to stop if one or two of the Seahawks' starting tackles (Abe Lucas is out and Charles Cross is questionable for Sunday) miss this Sunday's game. Seattle just signed veteran offensive lineman Jason Peters to the practice squad, but Peters is a classic left tackle. Right tackle Abe Lucas is headed to the IR, and won't be returning until Week 5 at the earliest. Seattle might just have to make do at RT for now.

The Seahawks pass rush hopes to be better in Week 2 after failing to produce a sack in Week 1 against Matthew Stafford. Jared Goff was only sacked just once in Week 1 against the Chiefs. This means the Seahawks could run into the same problems they had in Week 1 getting after the quarterback.

Seattle did show progress against stopping the run in Week 1. Holding the Rams under 100 yards rushing and giving up only 81 yards against Rams running backs. The new and improved Seahawks run defense will be put to the test in week 2 against a strong Lions running game.

Seattle faces big challenges on both sides of the ball this week against the Lions. The question will be who will step up to provide the necessary sparks for offense and defense. Here are this week's three Seahawks to watch against the Lions.
