though on a different play call — but Stephen Williams couldn’t come up with the diving catch. Kearse did. The second-year receiver made a leaping grab in the end zone over Thomas for the go-ahead score. “We’d called for a shot before, and I was surprised we’d missed on that one,” said Wilson, who threw for 320 yards. “Maybe I threw it a little too far. I saw Kearse out there with the rest of the guys and I read the play. He was a second read, and he did a great job of attacking the football.” Kearse had just three catches for 31 yards last season as a rookie, but showed promise during the preseason. The Seahawks failed on a 2-point conversion attempt, but they wouldn’t need it. Their defense handled
the rest. The Panthers had a chance to move back in front, but safety Earl Thomas stripped DeAngelo Williams after a 16yard scamper and Tony McDaniel recovered at the Seattle 8 with 5:25 left. The Seahawks ran out the clock from there. Williams, who finished with 76 yards on 16 carries, took the loss hard. “It was one mistake, but it was the mistake that cost my team the game,” said Williams, who also had a fumble in last year’s 16-12 loss to the Seahawks. Williams tried to make a spin move when he got the 10 when Thomas popped the ball loose from behind. “Their secondary has a knack for doing that and my job is to protect the football,” Williams said. “I didn’t do my job.” Thomas certainly did his. “When a running back feels like he’s getting
open, he’ll start swinging his arms,” Thomas said. “I got in a good punch. We always work on that, getting the ball to come out.” Added Wilson: “That shows what our football team is all about, that relentless nature to keep going after the ball. We’re getting close to the game being on the line, and that’s what makes Earl Thomas the best in the game.” It was a rough debut for Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was held to 125 yards passing and one touchdown — a 3yard strike to Steve Smith in the first half — against a Seattle team playing without defensive starters Chris Clemons, Cliff Avril and Brandon Browner. The Panthers led 7-3 at the break, but didn’t score in the second half. Newton was plagued by a few dropped passes, including two by his normally reliable tight end Greg Olsen.
Shula wanted to limit Newton’s carries this season and he did just that with the explosive quarterback carrying just five times for 38 yards. “We’ve got to go back and look and see exactly what they did and how they took us out of what we wanted to do on offense,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. It was a struggle for Seattle’s offense, too. The Seahawks couldn’t get much going on the ground with Carolina smothering Marshawn Lynch, holding the All-Pro running back to 43 yards on 17 carries. Wilson picked up the slack, completing 25 of 33 passes against Carolina’s suspect secondary. Doug Baldwin had 91 yards on seven receptions. Note: Panthers defensive end Frank Alexander was ejected in the second quarter after throwing a punch at Seahawks offensive lineman Breno Giacomini after a Carolina sack.

49ers made it three in a row against Aaron Rodgers and Co., after beating Green Bay last September to open the season and then 45-31 in the NFC divisional playoffs. Kaepernick marched his team 80 yards on five plays to take the lead. The 49ers answered after Packers rookie Eddie Lacy put Green Bay ahead on a 2-yard run with 8:26 left. Rodgers threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns, but the Packers departed from Candlestick Park with another defeat eight months after that embarrassing postseason game. Boldin came back from an apparent twisted right knee early in the fourth quarter to deliver a 43yard catch in the decisive drive. He also converted on fourth down with a 15yard catch that set up Phil Dawson’s late 33-yard field goal. In this fierce rivalry between a pair of NFC favorites, Packers linebacker Clay Matthews made his point, too. The Packers promised to target Kaepernick, but they probably meant for it to be in bounds. Matthews had a hit outof-bounds on Kaepernick midway through the second quarter, and 49ers left tackle Joe Staley made contact with Matthews after the play and received an unsportsmanlike con-
duct penalty. Both teams scuffled out of bounds, and the officials mistakenly replayed the down. San Francisco took the lead on that play when Kaepernick found Boldin for a 10-yard touchdown. Had it been fourth down, the Niners might have tried a field goal. “The down should have counted,” referee Bill Leavy said after the game. “The penalties were both dead ball, and they should have offset at the spot where the runner went out of bounds. And it would have been fourth down.” Top San Francisco draft pick Eric Reid had an interception in the safety’s NFL debut. Lacy, the former Alabama star drafted to boost a lackluster Green Bay running game, carried 14 times for 41 yards. Fan death: A fan fell from an elevated pedestrian walkway and died just after kickoff. Police said multiple people witnessed the man’s fall onto a sidewalk from the Jamestown walkway, which goes around Candlestick. According to police, witnesses say the man appeared intoxicated when he fell. Off-duty medics and police officers gave him first aid until an ambulance arrived, but the man was declared dead from his injuries. It was not immediately clear how many feet he had fallen. His identity is being withheld until his family is notified.
