Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey could be the Kryptonite of the Bengals defense

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey could be the Kryptonite of the Bengals defense

Christian McCaffrey presents a major matchup problem for a linebacking corps that is ill-equipped to cover backs out of the backfield. While the Bengals have some talented linebackers, pass coverage is not their strong suit. Enter Christian McCaffrey. McCaffrey is a talented rusher, but what sets him apart is his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and make people miss in space. The Bengals enter their Week 3 game with the Carolina Panthers with a record of 2-0. If they want to have any chance of keeping their winning streak alive, defensive coordinator Teryl Austin must figure...

Recap: Canes romp over Lightning 6-1

The Canes, playing a more veteran-heavy lineup, followed up their performance in Tampa on Tuesday with an even more dominating one on Wednesday. A night after Andrei Svechnikov provided a glimpse of what might await the Carolina Hurricanes in the regular season, Martin Necas showed that the hoped-for production from the Canes’ rookie duo might not be a pipe dream after all. Necas was one of five players to light the lamp for Carolina, who saw 12 players on the scoresheet led by three-point nights from Janne Kuokkanen (one goal, two assists) and Justin Williams (three assists) in a 6-1 win...

Panthers vs Bengals: Offensive preview

The Panthers face another tough test as they host the undefeated Bengals on Sunday. The Carolina Panthers have endured two tough tests in the beginning weeks of their 2018 campaign. While the Panthers’ offense was able to do just enough to keep the team afloat, Carolina fell to the Falcons 31-24 for their first loss of the season. The Panthers’ offense is still adjusting to life after Greg Olsen’s foot injury. Despite the loss, Cam Newton looked solid with a 71.1% pass completion and was able to test things out as he looks for a new safety target. Things won’t get any easier for the...

Cam Jordan has a high opinion of Julius Peppers

The New Orleans Saints’ defensive end could not stop talking about the all-time great in the Carolinas A lot has been made this season of Julius Peppers and his limited impact on limited snaps. Let’s not forget that the 37 year old player is entering his 17th year in the league while also rehabbing from offseason surgery to repair an injured shoulder. Take it from one of his biggest division rivals, Cam Jordan. He ranked Peppers as the 7th best player in the NFC South today. I need to apologize for doing a disservice to a legend, because this still might be too low for Julius Peppers....
