Research Notes

  • The Panthers sacked Russell Wilson 4 times Sunday after sacking him a combined 5 times in their previous 3 meetings (all Seahawks wins). All 4 of Wilson's sacks Sunday were against the Panthers' blitz.
    - Overall Russell Wilson was pressured (sacked or duress) on 46% of his dropbacks, the Panthers' highest pressure percentage in the last 7 seasons. Wilson was under the most duress in the 4th quarter, where he was pressured on 8 of his 11 dropbacks (73%). Coming into the game, Wilson had been pressured on an NFL-worst 38% of dropbacks.

  • Cam Newton was 2-of-12 on passes thrown at least 15 yards downfield Sunday, including both of his interceptions. Newton's 10 deep incompletions tie a career high and are tied for the most by any quarterback in a game this season.

    Both of Newton's completions 15+ yards downfield were to Greg Olsen, including the game-winning 26-yard touchdown pass with 32 seconds remaining. Olsen has a team-high 5 deep receptions this season while all other Panthers receivers have 6 combined. Olsen's average target depth this season has been a career-high 11.1 yards downfield.

  • Trailing 23-20 and on their own 20-yard line with 2:20 remaining, the Panthers drove 80 yards and took the lead on a Cam Newton touchdown pass to Greg Olsen. The possession was the Panthers' 4th 80-yard touchdown drive of the game, the most the Seahawks have allowed in a home game in the last 15 seasons.

  • Seahawks have allowed multiple rush TD in 2 games this year. They had allowed multiple Rush TD in just 2 games in the previous 2 seasons combined. (once in 2014, once in 2013).
