The game got off to a slow start offensively as both teams combined for one first down through the first half of the opening quarter. On the Panthers’ third possession, quarterback Cam Newton decided to test Richard Sherman deep.

It did not end well for the Panthers.

Newton’s pass along the right sideline intended for Philly Brown was picked off by Sherman at the Seattle 38, his first career postseason interception. (Watch video of the interception here)

Meantime, the Seahawks announced cornerback Byron Maxwell was experiencing shortness of breath and that his return was probable. Tharold Simon started in his place.
