Seahawks vs Panthers Live Blog

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks and Panthers have kicked off the first week of the 2013 NFL season and are currently in the second quarter. Thanks to a Steven Hauschka field goal, the Seahawks are up 3-0 in what is a very similar game to last years Week 5 matchup.

Russell Wilson went 7 for 7 on the scoring drive after a very uneventful first few drives.

One thing that stands out is quarterback Cam Newton, Carolina’s offensive captain. Newton has threaded some beautiful passes between Seahawks defenders and has just completed a touchdown to Steve Smith for a 7-3 lead over the Seahawks. Were it not for a couple of dropped passes by tight end Greg Olsen, the Panthers would likely be leading by more.

    Russell Wilson just threw a pass on the run that no other NFL QB would have made. Wilson’s middle infielder skills showed on that pass to Rice.

    7-6 on another Hauschka FG. Where has Christine Michael been? The offensive line needs to get their act together. Wilson’s been hit way too often.

    Both teams played good hard football, and both teams made a lot of good plays, at the end the Seahawks had the leading score and won the game. A play here or there would have made for a different winner. Go Panthers.
