The Panthers defeated the Cardinals on Wildcard Weekend and earned a trip up to Seattle to take on the defending champion Seahawks in the Divisional round.
The Panthers earned the NFC South title and finished the No. 4 seed with a 7-8-1 record. The Seahawks won the West and earned the No. 1 seed with a 12-4 record.
This will be the first playoff meeting between the two teams since the 2005 NFC Championship game.
In that game, Matt Hasselbeck threw for 219 yards and 2 touchdowns, leading Seattle to a 34-14 win and a date with the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
Jake Delhomme completed just 15 of 35 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions for Carolina.
Correction: A previous version of this post incorrectly reported that the Panthers were playing the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round.
