The troublesome Carolina Panthers preseason, one which saw Cam Newton suffer a hairline fracture to his rib in Week 3 and look slow to develop chemistry with his stable of new receivers, couldn't seem farther away now. The support Newton received from the rib protector by Unequal Tech reinforced with Kevlar he wore was second only to the support he got from his cast of offensive weapons.

After the Bucs came into the 2014 season with new hope, new optimism, a mostly new roster, and a new coaching staff, an underwhelming performance against the Panthers in week 1 has put the Bucs in dire position for week 2. The Bucs defense was supposed to be dominant, but instead was lackluster. Yes, there are some that say the Bucs defense did their job by only allowing 20 points to the Panthers, but this was a defense hyped up as a unit that was to carry the Bucs in 2014.

Without fail, opening week in the NFL always delivers its share of surprises. Even those who think they know what to expect don't really know what to expect.
The NFL has a tall order to fill following an intense opening to the 2014 season. Most of Week 2's games possess the potential to manufacture yet another wild football Sunday.

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will be aiming for the quarterback Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, whether he heard Cam Newton's nickname for him or not. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton referred to Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh as "Donkey Kong" this week, saying it five times during his Wednesday press conference.
You couldn't help but notice Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen as he left Thursday's practice in a full sprint only minutes after arriving. There was a distressed look on his face.
Charlotte, NC - Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is on track to start Sunday's home opener after missing the first game of the season with a fractured rib. Newton was a full participant in practice all week and has said he would "absolutely" be ready to go against the Detroit Lions.
Once again this year we channel our inner pigskin nerd and dive a little deeper into the statistics to help illuminate Buc football...This week: takeaway impact, two-week win-loss records and more With each takeaway the Bucs' defense produces in a game, the team's winning percentage goes up a significant amount The Bucs have made it to the playoffs in three of the seven seasons they've started with a loss and then a win Statistics can help illuminate the game of footballa or they can take us down a misleading path. As Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Lovie Smith said: "I believe in stats, but it's [which] stats."
Which cat will emerge king of the jungle known as Charlotte, North Carolina? Will we see a healthy Cam Newton on the field? Will LimeyPanther be able to fit in a single airline seat on his way back to England after #LimeyFest14? All this, and a lot more, in this edition of Made from Scratch. Like a hungry cat sinking it's teeth into a fresh kill, we have tasted regular season football, and boy did it ever taste good.
In Week 1, the Detroit Lions ' future opponents combined to go 8-7. Here's a look at how each team performed: Despite not having Cam Newton , Carolina opened the season with a win.
As long as Cam Newton 's on the field, he should be in your fantasy football starting lineup for Week 2. The Carolina Panthers quarterback missed Week 1 with a persistent rib injury. Derek Anderson filled in admirably, throwing for 230 yards and two touchdowns in a 20-14 win.
I have to admit it is refreshing to be able to talk Fantasy Football again, because all anyone has been able to talk about since Monday is the Ray Rice tape that surfaced. We won't get into that here, but suffice to say, you can comfortably drop Rice as he is no longer part of Baltimore's plans at running back.
The Detroit Lions will look to build on a strong Week 1 performance on Monday Night Football when they visit the Carolina Panthers , who are expected to have starting quarterback Cam Newton back from a rib injury. The Lions are coming off a 35-14 rout of the New York Giants at home but will be facing a stingy Carolina defense that has helped the total go UNDER in 10 of the last 11 games for the Panthers.
