Another hot start from the Carolina Panthers

It was another fast start from the Carolina Panthers who showed the right sort of defensive intensity matched with a flawless ability to move the ball quickly downfield.

This was another notable highlight of a tremendous first half overall that saw the Panthers go into the break with a 21-7 cushion. Teddy Bridgewater did overthrow tight end, Ian Thomas, on an interception, but that was all the bad one could get from a sensational first two-quarters of action.

The Panthers might still be learning as they go, but things seem to be coming together quickly. They are playing with an increased level of confidence and it’s evident they are being given the right sort of freedom to express themselves with a relative lack of expectations on their shoulders.

This is an encouraging sign for the remainder of the campaign. One didn’t expect miracles from Carolina in the first few weeks of the season. However, few would deny they have not been better than originally advertised.

They are only going to get better with more experience playing together. The Panthers have shown steady improvement week by week and their coaching staff also deserves a large amount of credit for making noticeable adjustments with every passing game to eradicate problem areas.
