What were some quick thoughts to take from the Carolina Panthers’ loss against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in Week 6?

After another turbulent week for the Carolina Panthers that resulted in Matt Rhule losing his job, there was a quiet sense of optimism surrounding the dawning of a new era at the Los Angeles Rams. Steve Wilks is the man tasked with gaining some semblance of respectability from the 2022 campaign, even if they were heavy underdogs for their Week 6 clash versus the defending Super Bowl champions.

Sean McVay’s men have struggled to reach the heights of their memorable run to the Vince Lombardi Trophy last season. But they undoubtedly saw this as a chance to get right given the turmoil currently enveloping the Panthers and the number of key personnel missing from the encounter.

As it turned out, it was the same old story for the Panthers as they fell to another defeat, taking them to 1-5 on the season and with far more questions than answers.

With that being said, here are ten quick thoughts from Carolina’s loss at SoFi Stadium in Week 6.

Carolina Panthers missed Jaycee Horn

An under-strength Carolina Panthers defense already missing some key men were dealt another blow when Jaycee Horn couldn’t go at the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6. To see the stud cornerback was sorely missed would be a huge understatement.

Horn’s shutdown capabilities have been evident throughout the campaign. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Donte Jackson and C.J. Henderson, who didn’t exactly step up to fill the void.

Hopefully, Horn won’t miss any more time. If he does, then expect further complications against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Bank of America Stadium in Week 7.
