The Seattle Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers are meeting up for the first time since their NFC playoff game last Jan. and this should be an epic rematch! Keep reading for how you can catch this much-anticipated Sunday Night Football battle Dec. 4 via live stream.
It’s the 2016 NFC Wild Card rematch between the Seahawks and Panthers, and Carolina is going to have to step things up massively if they hope to even make the playoffs this year. They’re dwelling in the basement of the NFC South at 4-7, and while last year they went to the Super Bowl, now they’re in danger of not making the playoffs! Seattle is hungry with a vengeance for this meeting and it’s getting the big Sunday Night Football treatment Dec. 4 at 8:30pm EST. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE SEAHAWKS VS. PANTHERS LIVE STREAM.
Already the trash talking has started. Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman, 28, has mocked that when Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, 27, grabbed their 12th man flag and threw it to the ground in the Panthers 31-24 victory last Jan., he ended up cursing their awful 2016 season. “I guess Karma gets you. Doesn’t look like they are going to the playoffs this year,” he said before the game. HAH!
But Seattle head coach Pete Carroll, 65, knows how every game counts for them, especially coming off an embarrassing 14-5 loss in Tampa Bay during week 12. “This really feels extremely important to us, coming back home again, knowing we’re winding down with the season almost. We only have a few chances left, we have to make the most of it, coming back to CenturyLink.”
As for playing against the Panthers again, he isn’t taking anything for granted as their horrible record isn’t an indicator of the team’s strength. “A great matchup that we’ve played for years, it feels like playing a team that’s in the division, I’m that familiar with these guys,” he said in a press conference ahead of the game. “They’ve had a tough start to the season but they still look like a very good team and a very dangerous team. They’ve had so many close games, we know that they’re going to be fighting like crazy and we’re going to have to play very well.” Both teams will totally be bringing it and we can’t wait to watch!
