Carolina’s secondary is looking a lot better than they did before beating the Giants and that could spell trouble for Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer.
New York has yet to establish any kind of effective ground game so Carolina could see a lot of ball in the air on Sunday.
History is already against Carolina making the playoffs after a 0-2 start, but a win could put everyone back in good spirits.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers’ already young and inexperienced defensive secondary is suddenly being hit by injuries.
Carolina is 2-14 in games decided by a touchdown or less in the last three seasons. With Sunday’s one point loss to the Bills, the Panthers front office has to be questioning Coach Ron Rivera.

When a bad season is over it is said to have ended mercifully, but in the case of the Panthers there is a real sense that the best is yet to come despite a 7-9 record. Cam Newton may have come of age in a single 60 minutes of play while head coach Ron Rivera gave his boss, Jerry Richardson, something to think about when it comes to his job. Happy New Year, Panthers’ fans!
In a season chocked full of rookie sensations, one is rapidly climbing the Defensive Rookie of the Year ladder. Linebacker Luke Kuechly leads the league in tackles, just like he led the nation at Boston College, and despite the Panthers losing record, he could get serious consideration for the top first year player award. Carolina is also knee deep in players on injured reserve.
In a season filled with injuries, the Panthers are very used to saying, “Next man up.” This week is no different as they have to replace their number one back and number two receiver as they host the 11-1 Falcons who are in a lot better shape, physically.
