As we do every week, here are a few notes and tidbits on the Seahawks loss to the Panthers, from Pro Football FocusJim Seki.

Signature Stats

-- In the regular season, Russell Wilson had a 71.6 accuracy rate under pressure. While he wasn't under as much pressure (42% vs 35%), he did have an 85.7 accuracy rate vs. Carolina.

-- Along with Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, Cassius Marsh had no quarterback pressures despite seeing more playing time. Frank Clark had the only pressure from the end position.


  • Wilson had a season-high 48 attempts and 366 yards but that's just a result of the deficit. He attempted nine passes of over 20 yards, and nearly half of his attempts were to the left of the numbers (21 of 46).

  • Jermaine Kearse had the highest grade of his career at +3.4 (as he becomes a UFA). It's the most he's ever been targeted (16) and has only reached double-digit targets one other time (Week 1 this year with 10, which was also a loss).

  • RT Garry Gilliam had a great game considering his four-week stretch that saw 15 QB hurries allowed. He had zero hurries, no hits, and no sacks allowed playing all the offensive snaps. He was the lone bright spot for the OL.

  • Justin Britt on the other hand... a -35.7 grade on the year, surpassing last year's -25.2. Accounting for all games, he finishes as the second-worst left guard in the NFL, behind only Miami's Dallas Thomas. Looking at the last two years as a sample size, Justin Britt and J.R. Sweezy are the the second-worst LG and  RG in the league.

  • Targets: Kearse 16, Baldwin 12, Willson 6, Lockett 4


  • Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett failed to register a hurry or hit -- that has to be a first this year, let alone during their time in Seattle. Even more weird is that all three quarterback hurries came from the defensive interior (Brandon Mebane, Ahtyba Rubin, Demarcus Dobbs).
  • Kam Chancellor bounced back with a +2.5, his best grade of the year.

  • My personal DPOY, K.J. Wright finished with six stops, a +2.0 overall grade, and as usual zero missed tackles while he played all defensive snaps.

  • Still not enough being said about Brandon Mebane's second half of the season, and Rubin in the last few games. Both were the highest rated Seahawks DL.

  • Defensive stops: Wright 6, Bennett 6, Wagner 4, Rubin 3, Avril 2

  • QB hurries: Mebane 2, Rubin/Dobbs 1

  • Coverage targets: Sherman 6, Wagner 5, Lane 4, Shead 2
