Five key stats from the Panthers’ Week 12 win over the Denver Broncos

Five key stats from the Panthers’ Week 12 win over the Denver Broncos

Photo by Jared C. Tilton/ Carolina dominated and remains very much alive in a middling NFC South. The feisty Panthers dominated the hugely disappointing Denver Broncos 23-10 in a game that wasn’t really competitive. Carolina improved to 4-8 while the Broncos fell to 3-8. Here are the key stats behind the Panthers impressive victory: 2 yards - The Panthers first two possessions resulted in seven plays and two punts. On their third possession they faced another potential three-and-out with fourth-and-1 at their own 38. It was then Carolina dialed up a risky fake punt...

Monday Morning Optimist: A coach in the hand is worth a quarterback in the draft

Photo by Grant Halverson/ The Panthers have a long list of to dos before the 2023 season. Here is one item they can check off right now. The Carolina Panthers are not a good team, but they did do the first thing that good teams have to do: they took care of business against a bad team. The game was never really in doubt after the teams traded an initial salvo of punts. The Panthers faked a punt on fourth and short, scored a touchdown a few plays later for the first score of the game, and never looked back. They never trailed in this game. This is what getting better...

Panthers 23 Broncos 10: Carolina dominates for the first time all year

Panthers 23 Broncos 10: Carolina dominates for the first time all year

Photo by Jared C. Tilton/ Oh, why not? This Panthers-Broncos game was not expected to be an exciting match up and the teams did no initially disappoint. They opened by trading four straight punts. The Panthers, facing their third fourth down, faked a punt to earn the first down. A deep strike to DJ Moore and a 15-yard run by D'Onta Foreman saw Carolina in the red zone in the final minutes of the first quarter. It was the start of an ultimately satisfying offensive performance. That drive resulted in a 7-yard touchdown pass from Sam Darnold to Moore to close out the...

Panthers vs Broncos Week 12 preview: Three story lines to watch

Photo by Rob Carr/ Another quarterback, another week. What else is new in the Carolinas? This season in Carolina has been marked by two major stories on the field. Those are uncertainty at quarterback and injuries across the defense. They haven’t exactly been the recipe for success that interim head coach Steve Wilks might have hoped for in his second chance to lead an NFL team. The Carolina Panthers have shown limited promise in spite of that sub-optimal recipe, however. Wilks has kept the guys disciplined and focused and in turn they have shown up in divisional...

Panthers Reacts results, Week 12: Did y’all really think we were going to beat the Ravens?

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Apparently we need to do a better job setting expectations The Carolina Panthers lost a close game, 13-3, to the Baltimore Ravens who are currently standing at fourth place in the AFC. Carolina may stand at 3-8 now on the season, but they can walk away from that game with some pride in a close game. The Ravens only broke away in the final eight minutes by scoring the game’s only touchdown off of a Shi Smith fumble that was recovered at the Carolina 31. As we do every week, a few days ago we asked you if you believe the team is headed in the...

5 key stats from the Panthers’ Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens

Photo by Rob Carr/ Carolina’s defense was as good as the team’s offense was bad in another competitive loss. The Panthers lost a game that they were supposed to lose on the road against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.

Here are the key stats from the game: 5 punts and a pick - The Panthers defense came to play in this one. The Ravens first seven possessions ended with...

Monday Morning Optimist: They gave me what I asked for

Missed it by that much. | Photo by Scott Taetsch/ The Carolina Panthers are busy trying to make anything of value that they can out of a lost season. The defense has been good in some games and patchy in others, belying a mild talent and scheme mismatch on the one hand and an offense that does them no favors on the other. The offense has shown a steadily, until yesterday, improving running game that is held back by inconsistent and, at best, below average quarterback play. All of that is fine in a year where they fired their head coach. To be expected, even. As fans, we...

Fourth quarter mistakes doom Panthers in 13-3 loss to Ravens

Fourth quarter mistakes doom Panthers in 13-3 loss to Ravens

Photo by Rob Carr/ The Panthers ran step by step with the Ravens until the fourth quarter when everything fell apart. The Panthers held their own against a superior (on paper) opponent for three-fourths of their Week 11 game against the Ravens, but unfortunately for Carolina a critical mistake late in the fourth quarter sealed their eighth loss of the 2022 season. The Panthers trailed the Ravens 6-3 with about eight minutes left in the game when Shi Smith fumbled deep in Carolina territory and the Ravens recovered. Two plays later — a Kenyan Drake 29-yard run and a...
