In the NFL, the Carolina Panthers lost 13-to-9 last night to the Seattle Seahawks.
Carolina's defense had allowed at least 37 points in four of its previous five games. But the Panthers held the Seahawks in check until Seattle Quarterback Russell Wilson led a nine-play, 80-yard drive for the game's only touchdown.
Panthers Linebacker Luke Kuechley pointed out that they played the Seahawks with a similar outcome for the past three years.
“You look back at the last few games, it's kind of been around the same score. That's when you know it's a good match up. It's two good teams playing against each other,” Kuechley says. “It's fun playing against these guys but, at the end of the day, you want to win and and the end of the game, you gotta step up and make some plays.”
Carolina Quarterback Cam Newton was 12 of 27 for 121 yards with an interception and a fumble for the Panthers.
They’ll host the New Orleans Saints Thursday.
