Seahawks 31, Panthers 14

Seahawks conjure rally vs. Panthers

SEATTLE — Trying to describe this comeback befuddled even Pete Carroll. Football coaches don't use "mystical" very often.

"We haven't been feeling right about what we're capable of doing," Carroll said. "All week, (Saturday) night, pregame and then halftime it finally just jumped. I don't know. It's a little bit mystical there. I don't know what it was. It just happened."

And it just happened in time for Seattle to avoid an embarrassing and costly loss to the worst team in the league.

Marshawn Lynch scored on two 1-yard runs in the third quarter, sandwiched around Lofa Tatupu's 26-yard interception return for a score, and the Seahawks erased a 14-0 deficit to beat the Panthers.

Lynch added a 22-yard score in the fourth quarter for the first three-touchdown day of his career.

Former Seattle left tackle Walter Jones had his retired jersey No. 71 unveiled.
