Quarter notes: Fourth

In a nutshell: Seahawks 16-12. Pretty? Not exactly. But for the Seahawks, there’s definitely nothing ugly about a road victory. Steven Hauschka’s third field goal – a 44-yarder with 10:27 left – ut the Seahawks up by six. Jon Ryan, punting from the end zone, then ran out of the end zone for a safety with 59 seconds to play.

Players of the quarter: On a third-and-goal play from the 6, Marcus Trufant got Louis Murphy around the legs and Brandon Browner smacked him high to prevent the Panthers’ wide receiver from getting into the end zone. The play set up …

Play of the quarter: Facing a fourth-and-goal from the 1, Cam Newton threw incomplete into the end zone and the Seahawks took over on downs.

Number of the quarter: 1. As in the Seahawks’ first road win of the season.
