The Carolina Panthers season got off to a rocky start Sunday, but who is responsible for the loss against the Rams?
The Panthers are still looking for a win, but they won’t have to wait long for another chance.
They take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night, right here in Charlotte.
The Panthers are coming off a loss to the Los Angeles Rams inside Bank of America Stadium.
The final score was close; the Panthers lost by only 3 points and against the defending NFC champs.
Yet the Panthers didn’t score on their first six offensive possessions.
Cam Newton looked rusty, throwing no touchdowns and getting picked off once.
Cam told reporters after the game that he wished he could take a few throws back.
“I haven’t met a quarterback, a great quarterback that hasn’t thrown an interception, that hasn’t missed any throws, that hasn’t missed any reads,” Cam said. “It’s good that it happened early, but it can’t just keep happening.”
Meanwhile, few other mistakes may have cost the Panthers a win on Sunday.
Receiver DJ Moore fumbled to end Carolina’s first drive and first year kicker Joey Slye missed a 53-yard in the first quarter.
