Panthers not focusing on postseason odds after 2-0 start

CHARLOTTE -- If you're a believer in statistics and a Carolina Panthers fan, then you have to be extremely happy where they stand after just two games into the 2014 NFL season. Following Sunday's 24-7 win against Detroit, Carolina is one of six teams to have a perfect 2-0 record. Philadelphia could join that group with a win against Indianapolis Monday night. The statistical...

ACC Power Rankings: BC rises, Hokies fall and can a third team step up?

There were some good things that happened for the ACC last weekend. Boston College knocked off a top-10 team, and the league went 8-2 overall with one of the losses (and one of the wins) coming in an ACC game. Three ACC teams won road games against FBS foes. All of that sounds good, right? Well, not exactly. A ranked Virginia Tech team who many thought was "back" after...

Four Downs: Cam returns, Hardy Sits as Panthers beat Lions

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers moved to 2-0 for the first time since 2008 after beating the Detroit Lions 24-7 on Sunday at Bank of America Stadium, despite learning 90 minutes before game time that defensive end Greg Hardy would be deactivated because of his current legal situation. Here are four observations from Carolina's win: 1. HARDY SURPRISINGLY DEACTIVATED After...

Fantasy: Final Sunday/Monday rankings for Week 2

Here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for fantasy Week 2 -- involving quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends (standard-scoring leagues). Some of the rankings have been modified to support new developments from the NFL's official injury list. But as stated many times in this blog, I am not one to overreact to a star player listed as "questionable...

Four Downs: Duke throttles Kansas, freshman RB sets rushing record

DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke (3-0) has cruised most of this season, and they made their first Power 5 opponent -- Kansas -- look as inferior as their first two opponents in a 41-3 dominating victory. The Blue Devils are now 3-0 for the first time since 1994. Oh, and it was Duke's first win against a Big 12 opponent in program history, too. As ACC pundits search for a Coastal Division...

Hardy won't be cut, will start for Panthers vs. Lions

CHARLOTTE – Embattled Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy will not be cut from the team said Friday, and will start against the Detroit Lions Sunday at Bank of America Stadium, despite an earlier report from a Charlotte radio station stating earlier in the day that he could be cut by the team as early as 4 p.m. Hardy, who was convicted earlier in July of assaulting and...

Panthers' O-line has their hands full with Suh, Lions defense

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The name Ndamukong Suh immediately conjures up images of an aggressive defender who sometimes blurs the line between being physical and trying to injure opposing players. But he's also one of the NFL's premier defensive tackles. Rest assured that when he and Detroit Lions teammates line up against the Panthers on Sunday (Bank of America Stadium), Suh will...

NC State will look for a cure to its road woes

As NC State (2-0) travels to South Florida (1-1), it will also prepare to do something no NC State team has done in nearly two years now -- win a road game. "One thing that we haven't done well as a football team is play well on the road, and that's one thing that I'm geared up to go change," Doeren said. "It's a challenge to do it for any team. I think...

Nine observations about the SEC heading into Week 3

Here are nine things we've learned, citing varying levels of detail, about the SEC after two relatively quiet weeks of play -- with none of the observations deifying Georgia tailback Tood Gurley (198 rushing yards, three TDs vs. Clemson) as the runaway favorite for the "September Heisman." We'll need at least one Gurley effort to make that rush to judgment. Why...

Panthers ready, willing to give Calvin Johnson extra attention

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It's no secret that for several years now, Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been considered the best at his position in the NFL -- by a long shot. Of course, when someone stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 236 pounds and runs like a deer, it's not exactly a surprise that smaller defensive backs have a difficult time slowing him down, let alone stopping him...

ACC Coming Attractions: Hokies can't let down, Virginia's two QBs and more

This is the weekend for the ACC, after it went 11-0 out of conference last weekend, to avoid getting too full of itself. Don't let hubris get in the way of what was a pretty good weekend, but not all that impressive, considering the competition. And there are plenty of games on the horizon for the league that range from risky to downright dangerous. But that just makes for a...

Frustrated Cam Newton ready to return to field

CHARLOTTE -- It was difficult to tell what annoyed Cam Newton more during his weekly press conference Wednesday afternoon, the questions about sitting out next week or the fact that his cracked rib and surgically repaired ankle have yet to fully heal. Newton was benched before the start of the Carolina Panthers' season opener by head coach Ron Rivera, much to the quarterback...

Fantasy Fox: QB-starter rankings for NFL Week 2

Here are my Week 2 QB rankings for standard-scoring leagues that reward four points per touchdown pass. This countdown doesn't lean on a particular stat. It's merely an educated early guess of which signal-callers, 1 through 32, will have the best combination of total yards (passing/rushing) and total touchdowns for the NFL's second weekend. Regardless of how these rankings...

Fantasy Fox: Thomas, Ryan headline Week 1 Revelations

Here are some Fantasy Revelations from an entertaining Week 1 of the NFL season -- a weekend that made stars of veterans kickers pushing 40 (Atlanta's Matt Bryant -- two 50-yard field goals) and undrafted rookies (Allen Hurns, Isaiah Crowell) who aren't ready to pursue the Canadian Football League as a full-time football option. 1. So much for doubting Julius Thomas'...

ACC Power Rankings: Virginia Tech jumps, Florida State stays on top

Preseason expectations? Those are almost out the window at this point. Coastal Division favorite Miami has looked blah so far, while Virginia Tech's big win at No. 8 Ohio State has vaulted the Hokies several spots up this week's power rankings. But between the very bottom and the very top, there's still a lot of ambiguity in the ACC that will work itself out in the coming...

Four Downs: No. 21 North Carolina escapes San Diego State, 31-27

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- No. 21 North Carolina (2-0) hasn't done a lot the first two weeks to show why they're a ranked team. Well, except win, of course, and 2-0 is all that matters at this point. The Tar Heels escaped San Diego State (1-1) by a final of 31-27. And for the second straight week, UNC has had to come back from third-quarter deficits to get the victory. "We...
