1. Byron Bell (or a replacement left tackle)Cam Newton has been sacked 32 times this season and the tackles have been the weak link on that line. Ryan Kalil has been a rock inside and missing Amini Silatolu for a chunk of the year has not helped.

Carolina living off turnovers and not turning it over

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers sit 2-0 on the season, and while it may be a surprise to some, there are two very simple reasons why that's the case: 1. Everybody knows the defense is one of the best in the NFL, and it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that in the two games Tampa and Detroit have combined for a total of 21 points.

Pro Bowler Kalil the lone fixture in Panthers' rebuilt O-line

Carolina Panthers center and perennial Pro Bowler Ryan Kalil is used to having several players rotate at the starting right guard and right tackle spots. Those positions, in particular, have had nearly as many changes over the last six years as Jay Leno has cars.
