CHARLOTTE - Seattle scored 24 unanswered points in the second half of Sunday's divisional round playoff against the Carolina Panthers, but it wasn't enough to erase a 31-0 halftime deficit, as the Seahawks were bounced from postseason play in a 31-24 loss at Bank of America Stadium.
"Every year in the NFL is a rollercoaster year," Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said postgame. "It's never a perfect season, never a perfect game. You just come in and you just try to play as hard as you can. Unfortunately, sometimes you lose, and in the playoffs there's no second game, there's only one game a week."
With that, the Seahawks' 2015-16 season comes to a close, but not before players, coaches, and staff thanked 12s for their continued support, shared thoughts on this past year, and looked ahead to what's next.
