3. Don't take the Seahawks pass defense lightly

One huge aspect of the Seahawks' defense that was missing in Week 1 was the presence of both safety Jamal Adams and rookie cornerback Devon Witherspoon. The first-round pick, Witherspoon, was dealing with a hamstring injury but returned to practice this week and looks to make his NFL debut against the Lions.

Adams, meanwhile, is looking to return from a knee injury and very well could be on the field for Seattle on Sunday.

Against the Rams, the Seahawks defense surrendered quite the performance from Matthew Stafford and his two favorite targets, Tutu Atwell and Puka Nacua. Stafford finished with 334 yards passing overall, while the two wideouts each ended with 119 yards receiving.

It would be easy for Lions fans to think their offense could do the same thing, but the presence of Adams is going to be key for Seattle. Adams is a guy the Seahawks will use close to the box and bring pressure, but he's also got the ability to make plays on the ball.

Witherspoon joins Tariq Woolen in a loaded secondary which could feature two of the league's best, young corners -- and maybe two of the best in all of football. The Lions cannot afford to take this defense lightly, and they've got to be creative, careful and purposeful.
