Carolina Panthers fast start, other keys to win at Detroit Lions
The Carolina Panthers need to focus on themselves for a win over the Detroit Lions.
It seems the Carolina Panthers fan base goes from one extreme to the other over the course of a season. Win and Cam Newton is Super Bowl bound, but lose and suddenly the team is completely out of contention with immediate changes needed in any weak area.
Yes, Carolina was embarrassed on national television last Thursday night but this was one game and there’s seven of those left. Seven different opportunities to build some momentum and capture a playoff berth – either by winning the division (which remains a possibility) or wildcard.
Detroit is struggling under new coach Matt Patricia, losing each of their last three by double-digits and winning just three games to this point. No team can be overlooked, especially in the NFL, but the Panthers are talented enough to get the win provided they take care of some recent issues and get out of their own way in the Motor City.
Continue to see how the Panthers can rebound and avoid dropping two straight road games on Sunday.
