Will The Panthers Return To The Super Bowl This Year?
The Carolina Panthers should feel comfortable heading into their bye week with a 7-3 record.
They are just a half-game behind the New Orleans Saints after Monday night’s win.
And what a win it was.
The Panthers blasted the Dolphins 45 to 21 and the offense shined.
Quarterback Cam Newton threw for 254 yards and four touchdowns.
Rookie Christian McCaffrey scored touchdowns rushing and receiving and Devin Funchess caught five passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns
Meanwhile, the first ranked defense turned the tide in the game with Luke Kuechly’s interception in the final minute of the first half.
If the Panthers see the post season, it will be without rookie wide receiver Curtis Samuel.
The second-round pick is out for the rest of the season.
He hurt a ligament in his left ankle during last night’s game and will need surgery.
