The news and notes you need this Carolina Panthers game day.
Carolina Panthers (4-2) quarterback Cam Newton is traveling with the team this week but remains sidelined with a foot injury. For the fifth straight game backup, Kyle Allen will lead the offense and face, arguably, his toughest opponent to date.
Beginning his professional career with five straight wins (one last year against New Orleans in Week 17), if Allen hopes to continue his current streak he’ll need to be well protected. The San Francisco 49ers (6-0) defense has been impressive, leading to one of their best starts in franchise history.
For both quarterbacks, Allen and the 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo, staying upright and protecting the football are keys to winning this football game. Each defense has displayed a tendency to get after the quarterback and whichever one remains poised in the pocket will undoubtedly make a difference in the outcome.
