Panthers jump out to big, quick lead on Seahawks

Jonathan Stewart’s back, in a big way.

The Panthers running back just gave his side a quick 7-0 lead over the Seahawks, with a 4-yard touchdown run.

It wasn’t nearly as dramatic as his first carry of the day, as he took the game’s first snap 59 yards, with Richard Sherman running him down at the end to save a touchdown.

Stewart’s had four weeks off to rest a foot injury, but has shown no signs of it so far.

And it didn’t take long for the Panthers to add to it, with a Luke Kuchly interception return for a score on Seattle’s first chance to answer.
