Power Rankings
Cam Newton is playing great football. That tie in Cincinnati has to feel like a victory with the way they got it with the miss by Mike Nugent.
Cam Newton is playing some good football. He will have to carry this team this season.
The defense has given up 75 points the past two weeks. That's hard to believe.
Was the Carolina team against the Steelers the one we expected to see or was it an aberration? What happened to the defense?
The defense has done a great job the first two weeks. The pass rush remains the key to that unit.
Winning on the road without Cam Newton was impressive. The defense was suffocating against Tampa Bay for three-plus quarters.
I just think they are in for a fall down the standings. The offensive line is a concern, as is the secondary.
They are being picked by many to be a step-back team in 2014. I tend to agree.
They still have Cam Newton and those pass rushers. That matters. But there are a lot of holes.
Their next big decision is deciding what to do with Pro Bowl pass rusher Greg Hardy. They could tag him.
