The Carolina Panthers held off a strong comeback attempt by the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's NFC divisional round game. The final score was 31-24.

Jonathan Stewart, returning from a foot injury, scored two touchdowns after jump starting the Panthers with a 59-yard sprint on their first play. Cam Newton threw for a touchdown and fellow All-Pro Luke Kuechly ran in an early interception for a score as Carolina built a 31-0 advantage.
