This season Cam Newton has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns and the Panthers only have 4.8 yards per play. Greg Olsen is injured. Kelvin Benjamin was traded. Christian McCaffrey has 2.9 yards per carry. And, yet, the Panthers have a chance to hit the bye week at 7-3. The resurgence of the Carolina defense has been impressive and has been enough to carry the offense. Newton has shown flashes, but just hasn’t been the same player all season long. The Panthers have less than 200 passing yards in 6 of their 9 games this season. Christian McCaffrey has 16 more catches than any other player on the roster and he only has 7.5 yards per catch. The Panthers are only averaging 3.7 yards per carry because Cam Newton has 4.9 yards per pop on his 69 attempts. Both running backs have just 2.9 yards per carry. It is hard to figure out what we’re going to get from this Panthers offense on a regular basis, especially with a decrease in skill position talent at the wide receiver and tight end positions. Oh, yeah, and Carolina is -8 in turnover margin because of the offense.
. Carolina’s defense has held the opposition below 5 yards per play this season and opponents have only scored on 28.9 % of their drives, which is the third-best mark in the NFL, but the Panthers haven’t generated many takeaways. Carolina’s defense only has 4 interceptions this season. The base defense, however, has been terrific, especially when both Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly can play. Even though Carolina doesn’t have the takeaways, only the Jaguars have more sacks than the 29 that the Panthers have. Carolina has allowed just 3.7 yards per carry. This defense is carrying the offense and the irony is that this sort of feels like how the Broncos played when the Panthers lost to them in Super Bowl 50. No, that isn’t a bold call that Carolina will make the Super Bowl, but it has a similar type of framework.
