Carolina Panthers vs. Seattle Seahawks: The last time they met

Streeter Lecka

It's been just under a year since these teams met, and we take a look back to what happened in 2012.

The Panthers last met the Seahawks in 2012 before Seattle would evolve into the juggernaut they're seen as today. The team had an idea Russell Wilson was good, but no idea just how talented he would be -- while the Panthers were just hoping they could stop the bleeding with a weak start they hoped would go much better.

Seattle Seahawks defeat Carolina Panthers, 16-12
