NFL Week 2: Carolina Panthers Vs. Buffalo Bills Live Thread

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills are set to square off. Each team is looking to even their record at 1-1, but one will leave Ralph Wilson Stadium with the difficult task of having to dig themselves out of an 0-2.

For the Panthers this is as close to a must-win game as you can find in Week 2. A loss would send panic across the Carolinas and the call for Ron Rivera to lose his job would be at a fever pitch. Perception is everything in the NFL and despite losing at home in Week 1 to Seattle it was largely forgiven due to the Seahawks being regarded as a top team. That isn’t the case with the Bills who are starting a rookie quarterback and have low expectations this season.

Buffalo is banged up in the secondary and will be without safety Jairus Byrd once again. Last week Carolina didn’t look to get vertical enough, but that shouldn’t be the case against the Bills. The opportunity is there for Cam Newton and the offense to have a breakout game.

Leave a comment below, hang out with us, vent your frustrations throughout the game and hopefully celebrate a Panthers win. If not, be prepared for the sky to fall and Twitter to break in the Carolinas.

    Woo-hoo! I feel like a camel on Wednesday!

  • Joey Riollano

    Good call

  • Catman

    NICE run D-WIll! THAT’s how to play!

  • Joey Riollano

    soooo close

  • Catman

    at this point I’ll take it!

  • Catman

    On target with that one! TOUCHDOWN!

  • Catman

    And Ginn getting his face in the camera! lol

  • Joey Riollano

    finally

  • Catman

    Packers are destroying the ‘skins and the Falcons are 3 TDs up on the Rams….at least NO and TB play each other so there’s ONE guaranteed loss in the division today.

  • Catman

    Understatement of the day coming up: C.J. Spiller really is quick.

  • Catman

    Yup – covering Stevie Johnson with a LB is a pretty dumb idea, guys….

  • Catman

    Boy, are we trying to give points away with the red zone penalties today.

  • Joey Riollano

    dumb

  • Catman

    So much for the “only” 6 points for the Bills today. Man this is crazy….

  • Catman

    Bills are chasing points too early

  • Catman

    Then again, that tells me loads about the Bills’ coaching staff and the respect they must have for our D, going for 2 this soon….

  • Joey Riollano

    we miss our secondary starters

  • Catman

    MMmmm yeah, but Gettleman added depth on the cheap there this offseason – good moves on his part.

  • Catman

    sigh

  • Joey Riollano

    bad idea to come out with that one

  • Catman

    gotta grab the “mo” back!

  • Catman

    eh, more like a great play. He came out 9 yards deep last time and got to the 30

  • Catman

    Easley ran by one block and creamed Teddy

  • Catman

    LaFell shoulda just let that one drop incomplete

  • Joey Riollano

    might work once but shouldnt make it policy

  • Joey Riollano

    bills are super aggressive

  • Catman

    How did I know the guy in the Buffalo bench was Steve Smith without seeing him?

  • Catman

    Glad for a DUMB play by the Bills for a change

  • Catman

    STOP STARING DOWN YOUR PRIMARY RECEIVER CAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Joey Riollano

    cam staring down again

  • Catman

    Geez, he’s burning holes in guys with his staring them down!

  • Catman

    Kuechly got it I think!

  • Catman

    D’wan! WTG!!!

  • Joey Riollano

    i called sack fumble in my original post yesterday

  • Catman

    saw that draw coming a mile away

  • Catman

    mannnn that was a scary play. And Quentin Mikell is carted off. Everyone look for injury reports upcoming, this game could be costly

  • Joey Riollano

    cam is amazing

  • Catman

    Yeah, and people – even NFL players – don’t realize just how big the guy is until they see him in person.

  • Catman

    That’s the one comment I hear in common about him….guys are like “MAN that is one BIG DUDE out there!” lol

  • Catman

    draw to D-WIll coming

  • Catman

    They just need to lose that read/option

  • Catman

    Well we got our 17, can we keep the Bills off the board for 13 more minutes??

  • Joey Riollano

    d-e-f-e-n-s-e

  • Joey Riollano

    i think we’ll need another score

  • Catman

    Nice tackle by Mike Mitchell there

  • Joey Riollano

    yes

  • Catman

    LOOK!!!!! (that’s “Luke” with a long “O”) YESSSSS

  • Catman

    Kuechly was the guy I wanted us to draft last year – and I am SO glad they did!!!

  • Catman

    nothing I see to reverse the INT yet…..

  • Joey Riollano

    me too. i knew his style of play transitioned to the nfl well
