The Carolina Panthers may have a big-time win streak going, but they’re about to face off with the win streak of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Some may not consider that much of a challenge still, but the Panthers are hurting in some big ways.
The Carolina Panthers defeated the New England Patriots in their biggest win of the season, and they are now heading into a possible trap game against the Miami Dolphins. Some key players, including a number of starters, will be out this weekend so the Panthers cannot get complacent.
The Carolina Panthers are enjoying the good life with a big win streak and having a firm hold on second place in the NFC South. They’ve defeated some teams looked at as being contenders in the past weeks, but they’ve got to face off with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots…and that’s never an easy task.
The Carolina Panthers are riding a four-game winning streak and looking healthier than they have at any point this season, and that’s a good thing. They’re heading to Candlestick Park to play this weekend and it is not an easy location to win in, no matter who you are or how healthy you may be.
The Carolina Panthers have firm control of second place in the NFC South and they are looking to keep pace with the first-place New Orleans Saints. This weekend, the Panthers could knock the Atlanta Falcons even further into third place and they’re just healthy enough to do it.
As the time comes for the Thursday night game against the desperate Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Carolina Panthers are traveling with a rather healthy squad. There have hardly any players ruled out and things are going in the right direction for the team to climb above .500 for the first time in years.
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.
Defense has not been a trademark of the 2012 Raiders, having given up 402 points in 14 games, so it will be no surprise if they add to that inflated number this weekend. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Richard Seymour has somehow stayed on the active roster all season, despite missing the last six contests, and he will be out again when his team tries to slow down the recharged Panthers.
With a neck injury, running back Ahmad Bradshaw is the single biggest concern for head coach Tom Coughlin and his 24th ranked ground game.
The Panthers and Buccaneers each have top players banged up, but it’s Tampa Bay thats feeling the pain, especially at cornerback. Carolina quarterback Cam Newton had a record setting rookie campaign passing the ball, and could have a field day to start his second year against a secondary with little depth.
