RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Considering the unique challenges the Carolina offense presented, Pete Carroll believes the Seattle Seahawks' defensive performance against the Panthers could be the best since he returned to the NFL as Seattle's coach in 2009.
The Seahawks leaned on their defense heavily in Sunday's 16-12 win over Carolina to make up for three turnovers early in the second half that nearly handed the game to the Panthers. The Seahawks limited the Panthers to 190 total yards, a combined 2 of 15 on third and fourth downs and the worst day passing in Cam Newton's young career. Newton was just 12 of 29 for 141 yards and was sacked four times.
The 190 yards of total offense were the fewest allowed by the Seahawks since November 2007 against San Francisco.
