Carolina Panthers rolling over the Seahawks in the first half

The Seattle Seahawks haven’t shown up this afternoon in their NFC Divisional Round game against the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina on Fox. Maybe they are wishing Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh made the 27-yard field goal to eliminate them from the playoffs instead of missing it and allowing them to advance.

The 31-point lead is the largest in Panthers postseason history. According to ESPN’s Stats & Information, the teams — who have trailed by 31 points at any point in a game — are 0-325.

As the time expired in the first half, Steven Hauschka missed a field goal attempt. It was his first miss in his postseason career after making 12 straight.

Olsen caught a 19-yard touchdown reception from Newton to go up 31-0. Graham Gano made it 24-0 after connecting on a 48-yard field goal.

Jonathan Stewart scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown at 14:18 with the score 21-0.

Luke Kuechly picked off Russell Wilson and returned it for a 14-yard touchdown. His pick-six made it 14-0.

His last pick-six came in Week 5 of the 2012 season, which also came against the Panthers.

On the first drive of the game, Stewart broke loose for a long 59-yard run on the first play of the drive. Then, two plays later, he scored on a four-yard touchdown for the 7-0 lead.

Stewart has two rushing touchdowns. His last multi-touchdown game came in Week 6 against the Seahawks.

This season, NFL teams are 1-76 when they trail by at least 21 points in a game, including the playoffs. Only the Washington Redskins were able to overcome the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7.
