A recap of the Seahawks’ 12-7 victory over the Carolina Panthers in their season opener at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday:

PLAYER OF THE GAME: RUSSELL WILSON

The Seahawks’ second-year quarterback picked a most-opportune time to register his first 300-yard passing performance in a regular-season game.

If Wilson’s stat line – 25 of 33 for 320 yards with a touchdown pass and no interceptions for a 115.7 passer rating – didn’t tell the story of this game, then the timeliness of his completions did. Especially the 43-yard TD pass to wide receiver Jermaine Kearse with 10 minutes, 13 seconds to play.

But the fact that Wilson was so productive in a game where he took such a pounding said even more.

“We had our setbacks and our hiccups, but we were able to come through when we needed to,” said wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who caught seven of Wilson’s completions for 91 yards. “That’s the whole offense. You’ve got to give credit to everybody.

“But you give a lot of credit to Russell because he put us in those situations to make those plays. It’s phenomenal to have a quarterback of his caliber back there. He showed the poise back there, the resilience back there. At times when plays broke down he would create something for us. It was just amazing that we were able to do that today.”

This was far from the offense’s finest moment, but when his team needed him most Wilson was there.

He was 7 of 7 for 72 yards on the second-quarter drive to a 27-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka, including a 5-yarder to Baldwin on third-and-3; a 14-yarder to Sidney Rice on third-and-7; and a 25-yarder to Baldwin on third-and-3.

He was 5 of 5 for 62 yards on the third-quarter drive to a 40-yard field goal by Hauschka, including a 13-yarder to Baldwin on third-and-8 and 15- and 18-yarders to tight end Zach Miller.

He was 3 of 4 – hey, nobody’s perfect – for 60 yards on the drive to the TD.

He was 4 of 4 for 54 yards on the drive the consumed the final 5
