CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Russell Wilson threw for 339 yards and two touchdowns and Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 31-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Seattle Seahawks to a 30-27 come-from-behind victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
After Graham Gano missed a 52-yard field goal with 1:40 left in the game that would have given the Panthers the lead, Wilson moved around in the pocket until finding Tyler Lockett downfield for a 43-yard completion, setting up the winning kick.
The victory puts Seattle (6-5) firmly in the hunt for a wild-card spot in the NFC, while the Panthers (6-5) are reeling after losing three straight and having their 10-game home winning streak snapped.
Lockett finished with five catches for 107 yards and a touchdown, while David Moore had four receptions for 103 yards and a score.
The Panthers spoiled a record-setting performance from Christian McCaffrey, who had a franchise-record 239 yards from scrimmage. He had 17 carries for 125 yards and 11 catches for 114 yards, becoming the first Carolina player to surpass 100 yards in both receiving and rushing in the same game.
Cam Newton finished 25 of 30 for 256 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception in the end zone. He ran for 63 yards on eight carries.
