It had to come to an end sooner or later, but the Carolina Panthers did not think that their eight-game win streak would come crashing down like it did on Sunday night. The New Orleans Saints rebounded big time from their bad loss last week and took it to the Panthers in the Superdome.
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.
The Carolina Panthers have been trying to prove to the world that they aren’t just lucky and can hang with the big boys in the NFL. A close win over the San Francisco 49ers last week helped some, but a victory over the New England Patriots sealed it.
The Carolina Panthers are two games over .500 and have a clear lock on second place in the NFC South after demolishing the Atlanta Falcons and sending them reeling further backward. Their fifth win of the season came with a balanced offensive attack and a defense that swarmed their divisional rival.
The Carolina Panthers have spent years in mediocrity and staying just at or way below, but they had the chance to get there on Thursday night with a game against winless Tampa Bay. Things started out slow, but the offense got going and kept the Buccaneers with a zero in the win column.
The Carolina Panthers did a lot of things right in their 30-15 victory over the St. Louis Rams, but the offense didn’t seem as into it as in recent weeks. Luckily, Captain Munnerlyn and the rest of the defense stepped things up.
The Carolina Panthers have looked rather off many times this season, and Cam Newton has especially not looked like himself. Traveling to Minnesota to take on the Vikings, something must have clicked because the Panthers looked pretty great in every aspect of the game.
