Did the performance of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater help or hinder the Carolina Panthers during their Week 3 win at the Los Angeles Chargers?

The long wait for a win is finally over for the Carolina Panthers. A fine effort saw them come away from SoFi Stadium with a notable 21-16 success at the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3 that might propel them to bigger and better things going forward.

This is not going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination. The Carolina Panthers are bracing themselves for a clash against stud quarterback Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals next weekend. With the Atlanta Falcons, Chicago Bears, and New Orleans Saints also upcoming in the next few weeks.

If new head coach Matt Rhule can get his young roster to build momentum, then there might just a chance the Panthers can become a nice surprise at this stage of their rebuild.

There is much work to be done, but this will do Carolina’s morale going forward a tremendous amount of good.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is going to be a key component in any success that comes their way. The signal-caller provided a reliable presence under center for the Panthers at the Chargers in a solid if not spectacular performance that ultimately came down to a dramatic stand from the defense in the dying moments.

There is a lot of scrutiny on Bridgewater during what is his second chance at a starting opportunity. The early signs have been mainly positive, but did the former first-round pick help or hinder the Panthers during an elusive first victory of the campaign?
