Green Bay Packers
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Linebacker Thomas Davis takes little solace in the fact the Carolina Panthers are still alone in first place in the NFC South.
It’s hard to imagine that this is the same Carolina Panthers team from last year or even earlier this season, but it is. Injuries are beginning to be a problem, but it’s the defense that is the biggest fault of the team and the Green Bay Packers totally exposed it.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Quarterback Cam Newton had nowhere to run. Linebacker Luke Kuechly left the field swinging. A frustrating first half for the Carolina Panthers snowballed into a 38-17 loss Sunday to the Green Bay Packers.
The Carolina Panthers aren’t looking as strong as they did at the beginning of the season, but that can change with a win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Unfortunately, the running game and a few other positions are a bit of the walking wounded.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers continue to struggle without Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton has given Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers a little more to think about this week when drawing up his game plan.
Losing two out of three and then ending in a tie in a fourth game is not the position the Carolina Panthers hoped to be in as they hit their trip to Lambeau Field. The Green Bay Packers have won three in a row, and could really bring about a lot of problems for the Panthers, especially the defense.
With the last three weeks delivering a 1-2 record with two blowout losses and a huge comeback needed for the win, the Carolina Panthers have to right the track somehow. They’re going to have to do it fast too because the next five games are one of the toughest of any team in the entire NFL this season.
It was another Thursday night blowout, as the Packers dominated the Vikings 42-10 last night in Green Bay. The Packers moved to 3-2, while Minnesota is 2-3, struggling on offense without Teddy Bridgewater, who was inactive with a sprained ankle.
These two bitter rivals will lock horns at Lambeau Field tonight in a key early-season NFC North showdown.
