Seahawks dive headfirst into playoff race with 30-27 win over Panthers
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Pete Carroll is known for gutsy calls, but this one will go down right near the top of the list. With the Seahawks down 7 and facing fourth-and-3 with time winding down in the game, Carroll decided to shoot the moon. He hit it squarely. Rather than settle for a first down, Russell Wilson connected with second-year receiver David Moore in the end zone, tying the game at 27 and setting up a 30-27 victory Sunday at Bank of America Stadium that lifted the Seahawks to a 6-5 record heading into a favorable slate of games over the final stretch of the season.
