On a windy afternoon, kicker Joey Slye nailed his lone field goal attempt from 41 yards out and punter Michael Palardy continued to shine on special teams.
After releasing Ray-Ray McCloud, the Panthers called on Brandon Zylstra for punt return duties and he immediately bobbled the first fair catch but luckily recovered.
Seemingly always in search of a legitimate return man, Carolina turned to multiple options on kickoff as the search for a primary individual continues. Reggie Bonnafon, DeAndrew White and Zylstra all received opportunities as the 49ers continually piled up points all afternoon.
The Panthers now return home to host the Tennessee Titans (4-4) next week.
