Carolina Panthers Week 10 preview at the Green Bay Packers.
The Carolina Panthers bounced back from a crushing defeat in San Francisco with an impressive home victory last week over the Tennessee Titans. The win keeps Carolina in playoff contention as they prepare to face the NFC North leading Green Bay Packers on the road this Sunday.
They’ll continue to do so with quarterback Kyle Allen taking over responsibility as the full-time starter after Cam Newton was moved to the injured reserve list this week. After having his injury and progress evaluated by two medical specialist, a timely return was ruled out for Newton and his future, unfortunately, remains unclear at this point.
Leaning heavily on running back Christian McCaffrey and the defense, Carolina has plenty of opportunities left against divisional opponents and others to make a push – win or lose at Lambeau Field. However, a competitive showing is needed to provide hope with a game against the Seahawks and two with New Orleans upcoming.

The Panthers are halfway through the 2019 season and despite not having their franchise quarterback available for a majority of the slate, find themselves 5-3 and in contention. A marquee win over the Green Bay Packers, on the road, would help boost this team into second-half play.
In order to do so the Panthers will likely rely on a recipe for success that has worked well to this point. Giving McCaffrey multiple opportunities, asking Allen to not lose the game and hoping their defense can force a turnover or two.
Causing Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to make mistakes will take a steady dose of pressure from the defense. While the secondary has been improved, Carolina needs to apply constant pressure and ensure they don’t provide Green Bay a chance late for any heroics.
Over half of the Packers games have been decided by less than one score and Green Bay is 4-1 in those contests.
