Kelvin Benjamin beats the LOB

Third quarter

Somehow, Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin managed to nab a 51-yard pass despite having two of the league’s best defensive players all over him.

“It was a hell of a catch, and he’s a great player,” Seahawks safety Earl Thomas said after the game. “… He made a great play.”

Bruce Irvin’s back-to-back sacks

Fourth quarter

Seattle’s defense cranked it up at the end of the game, with linebacker Bruce Irvin sacking Panthers quarterback Cam Newton twice in a row.

“It was a great finish,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said in a postgame press conference. “That’s why I’m so fired up about the defense, because the finish was in a surge, and that’s how we like to see it.”

Brandon Mebane also got a sack, busting out his infamous belly dance afterward.

“It’s always good to see Mebane’s stomach,” said Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, who is known for his own, um, unique sack dance.
