Seahawks 31, Panthers 17: First Impressions | Seahawks Blog | Seattle Times
Jerry Brewer: Carolina had the ideal game plan to beat the Seahawks. They controlled Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks’ running game for the most part. They forced the Seahawks’ maligned passing game to beat them. And their offense dominated the time of possession for huge chunks of the game, taking advantage of the Seahawks’ defensive aggressiveness and taking what they were given.​ In the end, though, it didn’t work. Russell Wilson and his receivers were brilliant. The defense forced three turnovers and played well when it needed to. It was a different kind of Seahawks win, and that kind of versatility should help them as they attempt to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Coach Pete Carroll said Maxwell, who had battled an illness all week, “just didn’t feel well enough. We thought he would come out of it. He was sick during the week. He just didn’t feel well enough to contribute on a steady basis so he participated on special teams and he was available to us if we needed him in the nickel.
