Carolina Panthers OL dominated yet again

Another game, another dominant display from the Carolina Panthers’ offensive line.

One of the NFL’s most improved units got the push needed on running downs and provided enough protection for P.J. Walker to be efficient on a night when throwing the football was a dangerous proposition.

There were a few penalties that drew frustration. But one cannot be anything other than encouraged about this unit’s potential if they stick together over time.

Frankie Luvu delivered for the Carolina Panthers

It appears as if Frankie Luvu is fully healthy again. The outside linebacker was all over the field in Week 10, coming up with dynamic plays in key moments to propel this defense to an outstanding overall performance.

Luvu’s two sacks will generate the headlines. However, his sideline-to-sideline presence from start to finish was equally if not more critical to Carolina getting one over on their NFC South rivals.

Carolina Panthers won’t go down without a fight

While some fans were already looking forward to the 2023 offseason, that’s not the case within the Panthers. They aren’t going to go down without a fight under Steve Wilks, who is trying to reinstall a sense of belonging and culture that went missing during Matt Rhule’s tenure.

The Panthers demonstrated resolve, character, and cohesion in equal measure en route to a well-deserved victory. This feeling might be fleeting with a trip to the Baltimore Ravens upcoming, but the impression left by Wilks has been encouraging, to say the least.
