Earl Thomas near-INT, Kam Chancellor hurdling highlights end of strange first half

Earl Thomas appeared to be on the receiving end of Cam Newton’s second interception of the game, this one near the goal line with seconds left in the first half.

But after a booth review, it was determined Thomas did not have full control of the ball and the Panthers maintained possession at the Seattle 24 with 18 seconds left.

After one running play, Carolina lined up for a field-goal attempt by Graham Gano from the Seattle 17. And that’s when the fun began.

First, Kam Chancellor hurdled the Carolina offensive line, and the play was blown dead for a false-start penalty on the Panthers, moving it back to the Seattle 22.

Then, Chancellor did it again and was called for running into the kicker, putting the ball back at the 17. The third time, Tharold Simon was called for an offsides penalty, but with Gano making the 35-yard field goal, the penalty was declined and the Seahawks went into halftime with a 14-10 lead.
