Bobby Wagner Snatches Interception From Panthers Receiver
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Former Utah State and current Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wanger snatched the ball from Carolina Panthers wide receiver Chris Hogan.

Wagner returned the interception six yards to the Seahawks own 27-yard line. It’s the first interception by Wagner this season and the 10th of his career.
