The return of Cam Newton to the starting quarterback position for the Carolina Panthers brought an extra spark to a team that played well enough in week one to register a win. Now, they’ve taken down the Detroit Lions for a 2-0 start, but there are still a number of things that could use some improvement.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — At least for a day, the Carolina Panthers didn’t need Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy. Carolina’s stout defense forced three turnovers and sacked Matthew Stafford four times in a 24-7 victory on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton made a successful return to the field, throwing for 281 yards and a touchdown in the Carolina Panthers’ 24-7 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.
The Carolina Panthers are little bit beat up this week after the win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week one, but there is one important thing coming from this week’s injury list. Quarterback Cam Newton is on the list again, but it will be next to impossible to keep him out of the line-up this week versus the Detroit Lions.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers nine-year veteran safety Roman Harper knows all too well about what wide receiver Calvin Johnson can do to a defense. Harper was a member of the New Orleans Saints when Johnson caught 12 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns in a 2011 playoff game.
The Panthers have a chance to win 2 games in the month of September for the first time in the Rivera era on Sunday against Detroit. Here is the blue print to make it happen…..
Detroit Lions’ elite wide receiver Calvin Johnson, aka Megatron, has dominated the NFL with his numerous receptions and touchdowns for over 7 years now. And as Megatron and the rest of the Lions’ highly weaponized offense invade Bank of America stadium for Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers, we’re finding ways to try and slow down the productivity of Johnson’s game.
Cam Newton is set to return for the Carolina Panthers in the second week and be prepared to lead the offense against the Detroit Lions. The Panthers didn’t look overly impressive in week one with Derek Anderson at the helm, and the defense allowed the Bucs to stay far too close. Things will have to tighten up against Megatron and Matthew Stafford.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Cam Newton will start the team’s home opener Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
