Carolina Panthers Stats & Form
The Carolina Panthers look scary starting the season with three consecutive wins in two of them holding the opponents to single-digit points. Unfortunately for them, they lost the next four games and are entering week 11 with a 5-5 record.
The Panthers are coming off a 34-10 road victory against the Arizona Cardinals which kept their playoff hopes alive. Cam Newton made his second debut for Carolina as he returned from the New England Patriots where he spent the last season.
The 32-year-old provided a flashback to his MVP days throwing for one touchdown and running for another. The 2015 NFL MVP who was signed by the Panthers earlier in November made his presence felt on his first play of the game, entering on third down, running for the touchdown and immediately giving Carolina a 7-0 advantage.
