Individual Stats

  • With three games remaining, Christian McCaffrey is in a tight race for the NFL's rushing title. Nick Chubb (1,281), Derrick Henry (1,243) and McCaffrey (1,220) all have more than a 100 more rushing yards than fourth-place Dalvin Cook. No Panther has ever won the league's rushing title.
  • McCaffrey still leads the NFL in scrimmage yards (1,946) and is first in total touchdowns (16). His 86 receptions are the most by a running back.
  • DJ Moore continues to rank fourth in the NFL in receiving yards with 1,061. His 79 catches are currently eighth in the league.
  • McCaffrey and Moore have combined for 3,037 scrimmage yards, the most by any RB-WR duo in the NFL this year. It's the most by any RB-WR duo through Week 14 since 2000 when Edgerrin James and Marvin Harrison combined for 3,051.
  • Panthers defenders Luke Kuechly (114), Eric Reid (106) and Shaq Thompson (103) all have over 100 tackles, marking the first time in franchise history that Carolina has had three 100-tackle players in the same season. The last NFL team to do it was Jacksonville in 2016.

Milestones to Watch

  • Carolina (6) needs three touchdowns from 50 or more yards to break the franchise record for most 50+ yard touchdowns (8, 1999).
  • The Panthers (47) need 13 sacks to tie the franchise record (60) set in 1996 and 2013.
  • Christian McCaffrey (1,220) needs 296 rushing yards to eclipse DeAngelo Williams' franchise record (1,515, 2008) for rushing yards in a season.
  • McCaffrey (1,946) needs 49 scrimmage yards to break Steve Smith's franchise record for most all-purpose yards (1,994, 2001) in one season.
  • With 54 scrimmage yards and 14 receptions, he would become the second player in NFL history with 2,000+ scrimmage yards and 100+ receptions, joining LaDainian Tomlinson (2003).
  • With 14 receptions, McCaffrey would top 100 receptions for the second-consecutive season, becoming the first running back in NFL history with two or more 100-catch seasons.
  • McCaffrey needs 142 receiving yards to break his own franchise record (867) for most receiving yards by a running back. He needs 274 receiving yards to become the third player in NFL history (Marshall Faulk, Roger Craig) with 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in one season.
  • DJ Moore needs 22 receptions for 100 on the season, becoming the fourth player in franchise history with 100 catches. If Moore tallies 22 catches and McCaffrey has 14 catches, it will mark the first time in NFL history that a team's running back and wide receiver both went over 100 catches.
  • Mario Addison (55.0) needs 1.0 sack to pass Mike Rucker (55.5) for third place all-time in franchise history. He would also record his second career double-digit sack season.
  • Eric Reid (106) needs 11 tackles to pass Mike Minter (116, 2000) for the most tackles by a safety in one season in franchise history. He needs one sack to be in sole first place for the most sacks by a safety in one season in franchise history (Toi Cook, 1996, 4.0).

Carolina has played Seattle nine times since 2013. The Seahawks lead the all-time series 10-4.
