The Seattle Seahawks are going home, and so are their fans. That's the message Cam Newton sent after the Panthers held on, 31-24, to get to the NFC Championship Game.
After building a 31-0 lead, the Panthers watched the Seahawks reel off 24 straight points in their divisional-round tilt to make a game of it. Clearly, Newton was relieved, and didn't mind telling the 12s to get to the airport.
Newton, who was 16 of 22 for 161 yards and a touchdown through the air, and the Panthers will host the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC title game next Sunday.
