Tre Boston – Carolina Panthers S

Tre Boston is growing in stature with every passing game this season for the Carolina Panthers. The veteran safety did miss a couple of makeable picks in the second half against the Bears. But his contribution was far better than most.

This is another big boost that the Panthers will need in the coming weeks, especially if Juston Burris is forced to miss time after going off at Bank of America Stadium. Hopefully, for the player and the organization, it isn’t anything serious. But there doesn’t appear much in the way of depth behind the starting duo and this would put even more responsibility on Boston’s shoulders to deliver the goods.

Carolina might have come out of this one with a loss. But it was a largely encouraging performance from their defense, who have made some real strides since the start of the campaign.

Their run stopping was much-improved and they came through in the clutch, which gave the Panthers half a chance of getting back into it that quarterback Teddy Bridgewater couldn’t take advantage of.

Boston, who signed a three-year, $18 million contract extension this offseason, finished the game with eight combined tackles, five solo tackles, and one pass deflection. These stats might have been even better if he’d collected those interception chances from Nick Foles.
