Carolina Panthers Week 8 grades at San Francisco 49ers
Running Backs: B+
Wide Receivers: B-
Tight Ends: B
Offensive Line: D
Kyle Allen finished completing barely half of his 37 pass attempts for a paltry 158 yards. Adding in three interceptions and the fact that he was sacked seven times culminated in his worst showing since taking over for the injured Cam Newton.
Running back Christian McCaffrey continues to be the lone bright spot on offense for this Panthers team. Taking part in nearly every offensive play, McCaffrey battled for 117 rushing yards, the lone touchdown and added the two-point conversion.
The offensive line struggled to protect Allen as defensive end Joey Bosa had a field day. He tallied three sacks alone, four total tackles and scored an interception. Wide receiver Curtis Samuel was targeted 11 times during the contest but caught only four passes for a team high 46 yards.
