Kam Chancellor's Interception Makes It a Breeze for Seattle

A really good game, and yes, that interception was a real heap of icing on the cake.

At LAT, "Seahawks return to NFC championship after cruising past Carolina, 31-17":
It was a brief encounter when Cam met Kam, sort of a hello-and-goodbye affair.

Carolina's Cam Newton threw the pass, Seattle safety Kam Chancellor picked it out of the chilly air and ran it back for a 90-yard interception.

“Kam Chancellor,” teammate Richard Sherman said, “damages people's souls.”

And Saturday, the 232-pound sledgehammer crushed the Panthers, putting an exclamation point on Seattle's 31-17 victory in a divisional playoff game at CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks are one step closer to becoming the first NFL team in a decade to repeat as Super Bowl champions. They will play host to the winner of Sunday's game between Dallas and Green Bay for the right to represent the NFC in the league's marquee game Feb. 1 in Glendale, Ariz.

The Seahawks played both Green Bay and Dallas at home this season, beating the Packers in the Kickoff Opener, 36-16, and losing to the Cowboys, 30-23, in Week 6.

“It's going to be one of those for the ages, you look forward to that,” Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said. “And you definitely look forward to being at home, rather than one of those two places.”
