Panthers will play Seahawks in Charlotte

- MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — After a tight game against the Minnesota Vikings, the Seattle Seahawks barely hold on to a 1-point lead in the Wild Card game. Next, they'll face the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium Sunday.

Seattle came back with 10 points in the fourth quarter to take a 10-9 lead over the Vikings. With the exception of a touchdown pass by Russell Wilson, all of the scoring came from field goals.

Blair Walsh's 27-yard field goal try into the frigid wind for Minnesota hooked left with 22 seconds remaining, handing the Seattle Seahawks a 10-9 victory over the stunned Vikings in their wild-card round playoff game in below-zero weather Sunday.

The Seahawks (11-6) didn't score until Russell Wilson's short touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin early in the fourth quarter, and a fumble by Adrian Peterson for the Vikings on the next possession set up a field goal by Steven Hauschka.

The Vikings (11-6) took the ball back with 1:42 left at their 39 and, aided by a pass interference penalty on Kam Chancellor, drove deep into Seattle's territory. After draining the clock for the seemingly inevitable win, Walsh missed the winner. He made all three of his earlier attempts.
