The Panthers defense is coming off a series of difficult match-ups. A Sunday afternoon tilt against a rookie QB could be just what the doctor ordered. By the time the Panthers take the field in Chicago, nine full days will have passed since their last football game. The timing couldn’t be better. The Panthers are in the midst of a five game stretch that has them on the road four times. Not only that, superstar linebacker Luke Kuechly was placed in the concussion protocol during the first half of last Thursday’s game against the Eagles, and there have been conflicting reports regarding...

Panthers DC Steve Wilks says Luke Kuechly is ‘fine’ after leaving last night’s game with a possible concussion

The Panthers linebacker remains in the concussion protocol.

Kuechly went out in the first half with a suspected concussion Luke Kuechly took a mean hit in the first half of the Thursday night game against the Eagles. Initially it looked to be nothing more than a shoulder injury with Kuechly pointing to the shoulder he has had trouble with in the past on the sidelines. He was spotted running to the locker room just before half time. When he failed to return for the second half, reports were that he was being evaluated for what would be his third concussion. The hit from the Eagles’ offensive lineman did not appear to make contact with the helmet...

Watch: Theo Riddick puts Luke Kuechly on skates

One of the tougher matchups in this game for the Detroit Lions was going to be how they matched up against the Carolina Panthers’ linebacking corps. Led by All Pro Luke Kuechly, the Panthers have been stout against the run all year and haven’t allowed running backs to hurt them much. That all changed on Sunday when they met Theo Riddick. The Panthers sent a blitz, leaving Riddick one-on-one with Kuechly. Kuechly could have stopped the Lions for a short gain, but then this happened: Theo Riddick juked half the Panthers team here pic.twitter.com/xhriNKLxTz— Isaac (@WorldofIsaac)...

Panthers at Lions: Can Rivera coach a shoot out?

Coaching not to lose may not be enough against a strong team like the Lions. Last week saw an incredibly efficient Panthers offense match up against the perennially potent New England Patriots. Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly are now 2-0 against Tom Brady in their careers and, regardless of officiating asterisks, that will always be good and hilarious to me. However, we may not have learned much last week that will be relevant to today’s game in Detroit. The Lions, for one, don’t have the same anemic pass rush that Carolina faced in New England last week. For another, the Panthers are...

I have PFF elite performance data to share with most good but with one surprise. We have a lot more positive to talk about this week. So it goes when a team pulls an upset.
