Key Coaching Decision #1: (CAR ball, tied 0-0 / Fourth-and-2, SEA 5 / 7:23 Q1)
• Carolina facing a fourth down inside the Seattle 10-yard line decided against attempting a short field and went for the first down. Cam Newton is stopped short and Seattle takes over on downs. We feel in this situation the Panthers needed to kick the field and take an early lead.
Key Coaching Decision #2: (SEA ball, trailing 20-17/ Fourth-and-1, CAR 13/ 11:47 Q4)
• Pete Carroll decided to go for it on fourth down and Seattle converted on a short run by Chris Carson. Seattle could not however, punch it into the end-zone and had to settle for a field goal to tie the game with more than half the quarter to play.
Key Coaching Decision #3: (SEA ball, trailing 27-20/ Fourth-and-3, CAR 35/ 3:33 Q4)
• Russell Wilson and the Seahawks went for it on fourth down and Wilson completed a deep pass to David Moore for the tying touchdown with under four minutes remaining.
• Christian McCaffrey is becoming one of the best backs in football as he totaled over 200 yards of offense with two touchdowns. The Panthers offense had close to 500 yards of offense, but it was all for nothing as they suffered their third consecutive defeat.
• Seattle was out-gained by almost 100 yards of offense but the defense played great in the redzone and Russell Wilson threw for over 300 yards and made huge throws in the fourth quarter as Seattle captured the come from behind victory.
• Carolina entered the game scoring touchdowns on 73 percent of their redzone drives but struggled to put points on the board against a stingy Seattle defense. Seattle was able to end the Panthers 10-game winning streak at home and in the process, this win puts them in great position to snag a Wild Card berth.
