Top Takeaways from Sunday's Week 15 NFL action

The Bay Area took center stage around the NFL world on Sunday for two vastly different reasons.  The San Francisco 49ers backed their way into a playoff spot following a horrible home loss to the Atlanta Falcons.  Over in Oakland, the Raiders played their final home game in Northern California before relocating to Las Vegas. It was a downright ugly scene after the Raiders blew a late-game lead against the Jaguars.  Sunday’s action culminated in the Buffalo Bills defeating the Pittsburgh...

Seahawks win, set new franchise road record at 7-1

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

With the Week 15 victory over the Carolina Panthers, the Seattle Seahawks set a franchise record with their seventh regular season win on the road to finish the season at 7-1. Their previous best was 6-2 during the 2013 season.

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks scored on their first three possessions of the game and went into halftime with a 20-7 lead. Chris Carson ran in the first touchdown and Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf were on the receiving end of two of...

Seahawks 30 Panthers 24: Winners and Losers

The Seattle Seahawks have seemingly played at the Carolina Panthers a billion times over the past several seasons, and other than one playoff game, they’ve left Charlotte with a W. This year was no different, although it’s the 2019 Seahawks, so instead of a 30-10 or 30-17 win against a fading Carolina squad, they had to conjure up a critical offensive possession in the closing minutes to deny Kyle Allen a chance at a game-winning drive.

Cigar Thoughts, Game 14: Seahawks turn easy win into nail-biter, hang on to beat Panthers 30-24

Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images

The Seahawks and Panthers just have a way of finding each other. It seems no matter the vagaries of the NFL schedule, these two franchises end up squaring off— and it’s almost always in Carolina. Usually, these teams are within a game or two of each other when they meet, and the matchup typically has outsized playoff consequences for both. This year, however, the Panthers have receded from contention faster than Greg Olsen’s hairline.

Not so for...

Falcons shock 49ers, Seahawks return to 1st place in NFC West

The Seattle Seahawks needed a win over the Carolina Panthers and a loss by either the Los Angeles Rams or Minnesota Vikings to clinch their eighth trip to the postseason in ten seasons under Pete Carroll.

Seattle took care of business in Charlotte with a 30-24 win, and while the Vikings crushed the Los Angeles Chargers, the Rams suffered a vicious beatdown at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys. It doesn’t eliminate Sean McVay’s side from playoff...

Chris Carson has career-career day vs Panthers

Photo by Jacob Kupferman/Getty Images

The Carolina Panthers run defense delivered as advertised and Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson was the main benefactor. With Rashaad Penny suffering a knee injury in Week 14 vs the LA Rams, Carson saw his only serious competition for carries in the home stretch end up on injured reserve.

That meant more opportunities for Carson, who ran away with a career-high in rushing yards on Sunday: 133 on 24 carries. It was Carson’s sixth 100-yard...

Bobby Wagner exits game against Panthers with ankle injury

Seattle Seahawks star Bobby Wagner is one of the best linebackers in the NFL, and on Sunday he was forced from action with an ankle injury. Wagner had his leg bent backwards and was on the ground for a few minutes as trainers tended to him. Ultimately, he refused help and limped off the field on his own. After arriving at Seattle’s sideline, Wagner was ruled questionable to return with an ankle injury. Earlier in the game, Wagner made one of its biggest plays, picking off Kyle Allen....

Another road win over the Panthers!

The Seattle Seahawks (11-3) started out red hot on offense, cooled off late, but hung on for a 30-24 win over the Carolina Panthers (5-9) on a beautiful day in Charlotte. Russell WIlson went 20/26 for 286 yards and two touchdown passes, while Chris Carson burst through an awful Panthers run defense for 133 yards and two touchdowns, and Tyler Lockett tore up Carolina for 120 yards and 8 catches and a touchdown.

Watch: Trick play goes horribly wrong as WR Josh Gordon throws interception

Seattle Seahawks receiver Josh Gordon attempted a pass to D.K. Metcalf on fake reverse against the Carolina Panthers. The trick-play attempt did not go well. Gordon, under pressure, essentially chucked an arm punt that was picked off by Panthers safety Tre Boston. The big problem with Gordon’s throw is that it happened on second down from inside Carolina territory. A bit more awareness about what to do in that situation would have gone a long way here. Though, for Boston, this mistake by...

Watch: Josh Gordon with catch of the NFL season

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon entered Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers having caught just six passes in four games since the team picked him up off waivers.

Give Josh Gordon the ball more

Josh Gordon’s departure from the New England Patriots was shrouded in mystery. He was designated to IR and then released, activating a rule that sent the media into a frenzy for a couple of days. It didn’t work, as all of the bad teams passed on Gordon, and he landed on the immediately grateful Seattle Seahawks to begin November.

What concerns there may have been with his knee injury haven’t amounted to anything that we’ve heard of in Seattle, as...
