Carolina Panthers have another win

Wins have been hard to come by for the Carolina Panthers in recent history. So anytime you beat the brakes off Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it’s something to be happy about.

While I understand fans can be frustrated as they may see this as a “meaningless” win, we’ve seen in the past this is a team that doesn’t win often. Very rarely do they succeed against a team expected to be in playoff contention.

Despite talk of tanking for a high draft pick, the NFC South is arguably the worst division in the NFL this season, The Bucs and Atlanta Falcons are joint leaders with a 3-4 record, and the Panthers are just a game back at 2-5 but most importantly they’re 2-0 in the division.

With the Bucs hosting Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on a short week this Thursday and Carolina heading to Atlanta to take on the Falcons, it’s totally feasible in a week that the Panthers could have the sole lead in the NFC South.

It’s also important to remember it’s just one game. The Panthers still have a very tough schedule remaining including trips to Baltimore and the Cincinnati Bengals, so there’s still a real possibility this team is in a prime position to draft a franchise quarterback in 2023.

Carolina remains on a thin tightrope. But there is no sign of throwing in the towel from Steve Wilks and his squad just yet.
