The Carolina Panthers may not have been worried if the New Orleans Saints had taken down the league-leading Seattle Seahawks. Instead, the Saints got blown out and then got stranded in Seattle overnight and now the Panthers will be playing a team that is looking for redemption.
Two winning streaks went up against each other on Sunday, and one of them had to come to an end. When all was said and done, it was the longer win streak of the Carolina Panthers that carried on and the three-game streak of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came crashing to an end.
The Carolina Panthers looked as if they were falling right into a traditional trap game after a huge victory last week, but they were able to escape. Cam Newton led the comeback charge in a game that looked as if it was going to be a major upset against the Miami Dolphins.
Greg Olsen the Panthers starting tight end joins The Drive to talk about if that was Cam Newton’s best game so far, how the change in offensive coordinators has affected the team this year, and what the atmosphere of Bank of America Stadium felt like last night and how it compared to other regular season games.
The Carolina Panthers are looking good with two victories out in the past three games, and they’ve got a healthy enough team to contend with anyone in the NFL. The St. Louis Rams are on a two-game winning streak, but are about to step into the Panthers’ den.
Cam Newton sacked seven times, picked off three more as Panthers offense and defense sputter to a 1-3 record.
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.
The Bills have five players out including some key backups while the Panthers look ready to play.
