So what if Cam Newton was the leading rusher – again? Who cares if special teams was a disaster – again? The Panthers did what they were supposed to and that was hand the Eagles their seventh straight loss and keep some hope alive to at least reach last year’s win total.
The Panthers are a little thin on defense and that does not bode well for them getting their second win of the year against the Redskins. Washington is a little banged up themselves and a win would go a long way to makeing a second half run for a postseason berth.
It was hard to believe the Panthers team that took the field on Sunday was 1-5 because they gave the Chicago Bears and their quarterback Jay Cutler fits throughout. But the Monsters of the Midway prevailed on a last second field goal which handed Carolina their fifth straight loss dropping them even further into the cellar of the NFC South Division.
