The Seattle Seahawks believe they’re Super Bowl contenders entering the 2013 NFL season, and many oddsmakers, analysts and non-Skip Bayless talking-heads agree with them. This, despite them being without Pro Bowl wide receiver Percy Harvin, who will likely miss the first-half of the year, if not longer.

Needless to say, they don’t need other key players to go down with injury, and a pair of key defenders could be out Sunday for their opener against the Carolina Panthers.

Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Browner and defensive end Cliff Avril are both being called “game-day” decisions:



The bigger loss would be Browner, who came up lame with the hamstring pull late in the week during practice. If he can’t go, his backup is Walter Thurmond III, who is a very capable nickle CB.
