Carolina Panthers: Takeaways from loss to the Buffalo Bills
The quarterbacks struggled
The quarterback unit did not perform well on Friday against Buffalo. Will Grier may have had a touchdown pass, but it was one of the few bright spots over the course of the game.
They didn’t put up bad numbers, but they did not put of spectacular numbers either. Kyle Allen went seven-of-11 on the day throwing for 76 yards. Grier went 9-of-16 throwing for 77 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Taylor Heinicke went four-of-nine, throwing for 35 yards in limited action. Again, those are not awful statistics but they left a lot to be desired.
The quarterbacks had trouble getting the ball into the end zone on Friday and that was a bit concerning. The whole passing attack just could not seem to get going at all. They only found the end zone once, and although the Buffalo Bills defense was tough, they should have been able to find the end zone more than once. I would consider this game a step back for the unit in comparison to last week, and there is no doubt that they still have a lot of work to do.
