The Carolina Panthers saw their season end in disappointing fashion by losing 31-17 to the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday. The NFC West champs proved to be too much for the Panthers, who dropped a fifth consecutive loss to Seattle.
For what it was worth, this game was close for one half. The Seahawks led 14-10 going into halftime but broke the game open in the fourth quarter by outscoring Carolina 17-7.
For many, this was not the way the game was supposed to end. If the Panthers were to lose, then the game would be close. However, miscues late in the game allowed the vaunted Seattle defense to take control and put considerable distance between itself and its opponents.
Each unit was graded based on its performance, and the final grade reflects the outcome of the game itself. Without further ado, here are the final grades of the Carolina Panthers 2014 season.
