Super Bowl champions Seattle moved a step closer to a return to the NFL’s title game with a 31-17 playoff win over the Carolina Panthers. Quarterback Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes and defender Kam Chancellor returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter as the Seahawks pulled away.

With the victory, the Seahawks advance to the National Football Conference title game. They will host the winner of Sunday’s NFC second-round clash between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. Wilson completed 15 of 22 passing attempts for 268 yards and added 22 yards on the ground.

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 129 yards and a touchdown and Luke Willson had four receptions for 68 yards and a TD for the Seahawks, who have won eight straight post-season games in front of their frenzied fans in Seattle. Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch carried the ball 14 times for 59 yards. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton completed 23 of 36 passes for 246 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
