Seahawks Turn It Around--Defeat Lowly Panthers

It started looking like their season was over and ended like their season was just beginning. Marshawn Lynch scored three second half touchdowns to lead the Seattle Seahawks to a 31-14 win over the Carolina Panthers.
Carolina, with a 1 and 10 record, scored a touchdown on it's first drive, while the Seahawk offense looked just as listless as the defense. The second half started with the Seahawks pinned at their own 4 after Leon Washington bobbled a kick-off. However, Matt Hasselbeck was able to sustain a drive to the end zone and Lofa Tatatupu intercepted a Carolina pass on the next drive and it into the end zone. Washington later took a punt on what should have been a touchdown, however, an early celebration allowed the punter to catch up and trip him. Lynch took the ball into the end zone on a subsequent play.
Seahawk great Walter Jones, who retired last spring, was honored at the 2-minute warning of the first half.
