The Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints are moving from one big game to the next. Hopefully the action Sunday is more compelling than Monday night's blowout at CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks won't have the home-field advantage in Week 14 as they renew their burgeoning rivalry with the San Francisco 49ers, who are the far more desperate team as they linger on the fringe of the NFC playoff race.

The Saints, however, will get back to home cooking in the Superdome as they meet the scalding Carolina Panthers for the first time this season. Nothing will be decided in this game, which was flexed into the Sunday Night Football slot, but the winner does assume sole ownership of first place in the NFC South and the inside track to a first-round playoff bye.

Here are the picks for those games from USA TODAY Sports' panel of NFL experts plus the other 14 showdowns of Week 14:
