Seattle Seahawks vs Carolina Panthers 12/15/2019
The Seattle Seahawks last danced with the Los Angeles Rams but didn’t get the upper hand in the beatdown. They lost with a stunning 28-12 score. QB Russell Wilson was not lucky that night, going by 22/36 with 245 passing yards. He didn’t connect any thrown TDs, and instead got a pick. Chris Carson led the ground game with 15 carries pegged at 76 yards. DK Metcalf was the top reception specialist, catching the ball 6 times for 78 yards.
The Seahawks didn’t have much going for them that day. They weren’t in their usual aggressive form, initiating first-downs only 16 times. They used the rush tactic sparingly as well- 21 out of 62 plays. The Seahawks seemed to have met their match with regard to staunch defense. Their opponent must have found a way to choke their usual rush style.
The Seahawks, frustrated in their offensive strategy, didn’t have any heart left to compensate with their defense. They let opponent attempts slip through with 69% throw completion rate and 35 rush attempts. This is a clear sign that the Seahawks had already lost the field. Even the tale of the yards echoes their predicament- the Seahawks gained only 293 yards as compared to the opponent’s 455.

The Panthers just came from a crushing loss versus the Atlanta Falcons. It was a high-scoring game for both teams, but the Falcons buried the Panthers in terms of dominance. The 40-20 endgame score is proof of that already. QB Kyle Allen was going for 28/41 with 293 air yards. He completed a thrown TD and 2 picks. Christian McCaffrey was the leader of the rush, going for 11 rush attempts for 53 yards. The top receiver caught the ball 8 times to grant the team an 82-yard boost.
The Panthers couldn’t outscore their enemy because of a flaw in their defense. Their throw defense was decent at 59% opponent completion rate. However, their defensive line had no answers for the blitz rush attacks that the opponent was throwing at them. 32 rush attacks went through, allowing the opponent to cover 159 yards.
In the battle of the yards, the Panthers were at a disadvantage. They managed to gain only 345 yards versus their opponent’s 461. The Panthers also rushed sparingly- 22 out of 68 times. The Panthers better shape up their game if they’re still hoping to get out of their current win-loss record status.
