Earl Thomas tried to walk off that injury after he collided with Kam Chancellor, but he was unable to, going back to the ground. The medical staff appeared to be working on Thomas' left knee/leg. Seahawks personnel carried him off the field so that he didn't have to put any weight on his leg.

Teammates have been adamant that LB K.J. Wright deserves to make his first Pro Bowl this year. He had the forced fumble there, the Seahawks' second takeaway on four defensive possessions.

Good cut/vision from Thomas Rawls on the split-zone scheme for the Seahawks TD. Zone blocking to the front side with the F/H-Back coming across the formation to kick-out the edge defender. That created a natural cut-back lane for Rawls to push the ball up the field into the end zone. Seahawks lead 10-0 over the Panthers in the first quarter.

Sheil Kapadia ESPN Writer 

Thomas Rawls' touchdown marked the first time the Seahawks' offense has reached the end zone in its last 17 drives. Pete Carroll insisted after last week's loss to the Bucs that the offensive performance was a hiccup and not a trend. Early on, it looks like that could be the case.

Sheil Kapadia ESPN Writer 

The Seahawks' defense has now gone 11 straight possessions without allowing a point. Kam Chancellor is playing at a high level. He had a pass breakup on the Panthers' last third down. In the previous three games, Chancellor had 24 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble.

I'd go with Cam Newton.

ViewFromVegas of NFL Week 13: favorites are 9-4 straight-up and 8-5 ATS heading into Sunday/Monday night games. Seattle has been bet up to a 8.5-point home favorite (and even as high as -9 at some books) over Carolina in tonight's game. Unders lead 8-5 this week and the total tonight is 44 points.

The following Seahawks are inactive: OT Garry Gilliam, RB C.J. Prosise, WR Paul Richardson, RB Alex Collins, LB Brock Coyle, TE Luke Willson and DT John Jenkins. As expected, DE Michael Bennett will make his return. Gilliam, meanwhile, went from starting the first 11 games at RT to being inactive.

Cliff Avril's cleats honor the Cliff Avril Family Foundation. The Seahawks DE enters tonight's game with 10 sacks and four forced fumbles.

Sheil Kapadia ESPN Writer 

With the Lions' win over the Saints, the Seahawks need a victory tonight against the Panthers to remain the No. 2 seed (first-round bye) in the NFC going into the final four weeks. Seattle currently controls its destiny in terms of earning a bye, but that would no longer be the case if Pete Carroll's group falls to Carolina.

Mike Sando ESPN Senior Writer 

With Detroit leading the high-flying Saints 10-0, note that the Lions have held seven of their first 11 opponents under 21 points. That was tied for the NFL lead with the Cowboys, Seahawks, Ravens, Patriots, Chiefs and Vikings. Which two teams do not belong? It has to be the Cowboys and Lions. Just shows how well they have controlled games offensively, and how their defenses are probably better than anticipated.
