They nearly finished with perfection, but one slip up shows them with a “1” in the loss column.
Now, the Carolina Panthers have their sights set on a Championship and they kick their journey off against the Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional Round.
Seattle came from behind and saw Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh shank a short field goal with just seconds to go to secure their date in Carolina.
The Seahawks looked lethargic and sluggish through 3 quarters of play in the NFC Wild Card Showdown.
Then, a botched snap changed the entire complexion of the game. Seattle’s Russell Wilson saw the ball go behind him 10 yards and picked it up and scrambled for his life. Wilson found a receiver down field and Seattle went from punting down 9-0 to having the ball within striking distance.
Seattle eventually punched it into the end zone and got to within 2 points.
On the next possession, the Seahawks defense forced a fumble and set themselves up for the go ahead field goal. Minnesota would eventually set themselves up for a chip shot field goal, but Blair Walsh shanked it and the Hawks moved on.
Seattle will welcome the sight of much better weather after battling through below 0 temps in Minnesota.
Seattle fell to Carolina back on Oct. 18 27-23 in Seattle. At the time, the win was considered an upset. Now, things are a much different story.
Cam Newton went into the beginning of the season without his top receiver and had Ted Ginn Jr. and Philly Brown, both from Ohio State, to use out wide.
Newton has turned them both into playmakers and along side Greg Olson, the Panthers turned into a dominant force this season. Carolina remained undefeated knocking off opponent after opponent until they ran into the Atlanta Falcons on Week 16. Carolina was gifted one last chance to save their perfect season with just a minute to go, but Newton fumbled the ball and the Panthers dreams of going unbeaten were dead.
Carolina finished the season off with some momentum as they routed the Bucs to cap a 15 win regular season.
The Panthers were a dominant force at home this season, which will make things tough on Seattle. Carolina finished 8-0 SU and went 6-2 ATS in those 8 games. Carolina scored 33.0 points per home game while conceding just 17.0.
