Final Score: Seattle 16, Carolina 12

The Seattle Seahawks' rookie defensive end, Bruce Irvin, sacked Cam Newton and forced a fumble. Seattle recovered, putting an end to the Panthers' last-ditch effort to win this game.

The Carolina Panthers drove down to the one-foot mark on their prior possession but were not able to punch it in on fourth down. Cam Newton had an open receiver but short-hopped the throw.

The Seattle Seahawks rebounded from several penalties and turning the ball over the first three times they touched it in the second half.
