Without Seymour, Raiders Left Defenseless Against ‘Healthier’ Panthers

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.

Injury Bug Strikes Panthers Again, Cam Newton Putting Early Season Woes Behind Him

If the Panthers were to entertain a theme song for this season it might as well be David Bowie’s 1972 hit single “Changes,” because there have been so many of them on the roster. And on the subject of changes, Cam Newton has also made some, all for the better.

It Is ‘Crunch Time’ For The Panthers This Sunday, But A Loss Could Crush Their Season

The Panthers season comes down to this: They have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel and the only way to get back on solid footing is to beat the Cowboys on Sunday.
