The Panthers went 1-1 in their last two outings. Pulling down a win against the Detroit Lions and unfortunately losing to the NFC East division leaders, the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.
Starting with the game last Sunday against the Lions, Cam Newton had an amazing performance throwing for 355 yards and landing three touchdowns. Tight end Ed Dickson led the team in receiving as running back Jonathan Stewart led the team in rushing according to http://www.espn.com/nfl/game?gameId=400951558 . The Panthers pulled away with a 27-24 win over the Lions from Mo-town.
As for the Panthers’ matchup against the hot Philadelphia Eagles this past Thursday, Cam only threw for 239 yards with one passing touchdown and an interception. On the other hand, he did lead the team in rushing with 71 yards and a rushing td as well according to http://www.espn.com/nfl/game?gameId=400951558 .
The Panthers’ injury problems continue as linebacker Luke Kuechly was placed in the concussion protocol after Thursday’s game.
“Coach Ron Rivera said Kuechly remained in the protocol on Friday and that he would not comment further on the 2013 NFL Defensive Player of the Year until after Kuechly is cleared,” ESPN Staff Writer David Newton http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21014257/luke-kuechly-carolina-panthers-optimistic-concussion-protocol .
Hopefully we will see big 59 out leading the defense in Chicago next Sunday as the Panthers take on the 1-4 Bears.
