Panthers at Vikings: Offensive preview

Photo by Grant Halverson/ If you think Teddy Bridgewater will miss his homecoming game, you’ve got another thing coming The Carolina Panthers offense was hamstrung by injuries as they hosted the Detroit Lions last weekend. The team was without All Pro running back Christian McCaffrey and starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. They turned to Mike Davis and PJ Walker, respectively, and still managed to have a very productive day. This week, they’ll play an actual NFL defense as they visit the Minnesota Vikings. Panthers offense Man, a big round of applause for PJ...

Keep Sounding: We have no idea what’s going on with the Panthers

The Panthers suddenly figured out how to play defense against the Lions, and now they play an enigmatic Vikings team. The Carolina Panthers shut out the Detroit Lions in what’s probably the most surprising result of the Panthers’ season to date. Up next is a trip to face a Minnesota Vikings team that’s been all over the place this season. Panthers vs Lions When did the Panthers figure out how to play defense? The PJ Walker experience The awakening of DJ Moore Matt Patricia’s incompetence The Lions seemingly quitting and jumping offsides twice in a row to end the...

NFL Power Rankings Week 12: Defense’s dominance over Detroit gets deserved praise

Shaq Thompson, shown here holding up more fingers than the defense allowed points on Sunday | Photo by Grant Halverson/ A shutout of an NFL offense led to some jumps in the Rankings for the Panthers Just days before Thanksgiving, the Carolina Panthers beat the stuffing out of the Detroit Lions en route to a 20-0 victory. The Lions will have to play again on Turkey Day proper, as they always have, but the Panthers have a full week to baste in the glory of their win. The oven is definitely getting hot for Lions head coach Matt Patricia, while the Panthers’ Matt Rhule is...

What that bear’s doing: Panthers vs Lions lineman of the week

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports The Panthers recovered in a big way from last week’s humiliation and found a way to shut out the Detroit Lions on the back of an overwhelming pass rush. For those that haven’t tuned in lately, welcome to “What that bear’s doing” the 2020 replacement for the column formerly known as “The Hog Molly report.” We’ve changed the format a bit, in an effort to focus on the positives for this young team as they grow and gain experience together. Hogs and Bears are both perfect analogs for linemen, and while the term “Hog Molly” is...

Six winners from the Panthers’ 20-0 win over the Lions

Photo by Grant Halverson/ The Panthers improved their record to 4-7 after blanking the Lions 20-0 in Week 11. In case y’all missed it, the Panthers pitched a shutout against the Lions yesterday to improve their 2020 record to 4-7 in a game where they were missing five starters, two of which are arguably the most important players on the team (Teddy Bridgewater and Christian McCaffrey, in case there’s any confusion). Before we go any further I do want to address any potential “but it was the Lions” criticisms of the Panthers’ win by pointing out that this was...

B&B Postgame Podcast: Panthers vs Lions

The Panthers defense came out of nowhere to shut out the Lions. The big headline coming into Sunday’s game between the Carolina Panthers and the Detroit Lions was the absence of Teddy Bridgewater. That changed as PJ Walker played competent football and the defense suddenly found their footing, notching their first shutout since 2015. Brad and Brian talk about it for about half an hour.

Panthers defense shines in 20-0 win over Lions

Photo by Grant Halverson/ The Panthers picked up their first shutout win since 2015 when they blanked the Lions 20-0 in Week 11. The Panthers certainly had the deck stacked against them when this game started after it was announced that Teddy Bridgewater would not be activated for the game and P.J. Walker would get his first career NFL start. The Panthers ignored the odds and came out strong against the Lions with a first quarter touchdown to take a lead they would never relinquish. The defense played well throughout the entire game and earned the team’s first...

Photo by Grant Halverson/ The Panthers lead the Lions 7-0 at the end of the first quarter. First quarter: Panthers 7 Lions 0 The Panthers started the game on offense with P.J. Walker under center. The Panthers were able to move the ball a bit but couldn’t put points on the scoreboard after having to punt from midfield. The defense did a good job of getting off the field after forcing the Lions to punt, but the special teams unit committed a holding penalty on the punt return and had to start deep in their own territory for their second drive.
