*****Thomas Davis with the signature “Play of the Game” when he covered the on-side kick attempt by Seattle with around 1:45 to go in the game…*****
Final from Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte:
Carolina Panthers 31
Seattle Seahawks 24
Panthers hold off Seattle to earn the right to face the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday at home in the Bank of America Stadium for the NFC Championship…
Big first half lead for Carolina Panthers over the Seattle Seahawks at 31-0, but back out for the second half, the Seahawks have sawed 2 TD’s to cut the 3rd lead to 17 points in a hurry, before you know it in Charlotte at the Bank of America Stadium it was:
Carolina Panthers 31, Seattle Seahawks 14…..
Then it was Panthers 31, Seattle 21 after another Russell Wilson TD pass for Seattle and then came the Seattle field goal to make it 31-24 Panthers and the team from Carolina holds on to win with a great recovery of an on-side kick by the Panthers’ Thomas Davis….
That was one of the best plays by a kickoff receiving team member on an on-side kick that you will ever see…Davis had to jump about 10 feet in the air to grab the ball after it had traveled the required 10 yards and just as he hauled the ball in, he took one heck of a hit from a Seahawk, but Davis held on to the ball and the Panthers held on to win….
Panthers 31, Seahawks 24
Russell Wilson with 366 yards passing and 3 TD passes for Seattle…Jonathan Stewart with over 100 yards rushing and 2 TD’s for the Panthers….Panthers rush for 144 and Cam Newton passes for 167 yards and 1 TD….
Game time next Sunday for Panthers and Cardinals is around 6:40pm….On FOX 8…..
