CenturyLink Field, Seattle, WA
SEATTLE -- Trying to describe this comeback befuddled even Pete Carroll.Football coaches don't use "mystical" to explain success very often."We haven't been feeling right about what we're capable of doing," Carroll said. "All week, last night, pregame and then halftime it finally just jumped. I don't know. It's a little bit mystical there. I don't know what it was. It just happened."And it happened just in time for Seattle to avoid an embarrassing and costly loss to the worst team in the NFL.
• With their sixth win of the season, Seattle has already surpassed its win total from last year.
• Carolina has lost six straight and has been outscored 153-56 in those six games.
• Marshawn Lynch had a career-high three touchdowns. He entered the game with two rushing touchdowns all season.
• It's the first time the Seahawks scored at least 31 points without a passing touchdown in a game since 2005.
• Seattle's 162 rushing yards is a season high.
