Carolina Panthers can’t stop a cold on defense and they still lead the NFC South?

The Carolina Panthers have tied a game, looked horrible on defense, cannot establish a running game, and relied heavily on a rookie wide receiver this year.  That is still enough to have their team in first place of the NFC South, which absolutely no team wants to win it seems.  The Saints have been horrible, […] The post Carolina Panthers can’t stop a cold on defense and they...

Carolina Panthers: Bright spots amidst dull start

The Carolina Panthers haven’t exactly started the 2014 season as they had expected, and it could be argued the problems began right after last season ended. From the retirement and unceremonious release of team leaders to the franchise quarterback’s off-season ankle surgery and sack leader Greg Hardy’s domestic violence issues, the Panthers understood the road back to the playoffs...

Kelvin Benjamin: I didn't know NFL games could end in tie

The Carolina Panthers and Cincinnati Bengals played an exciting game Sunday that went into overtime. However, even OT wasn’t enough, as the game resulted in a 37-37 tie when Bengals kicker Mike Nugent missed a field goal as time expired.
