Carolina Panthers News & Updates: Week 2


A Valiant Effort From Luke Kuechly and the Defense, but a Loss Is a Loss | Max Henson/

    Quarterback Cam Newton said he had a hard time looking his defensive teammates in the eye after Thursday night's 20-14 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Linebacker Luke Kuechly was having none of that, though. In typical Luke fashion, the man with a game-high 17 tackles (his second-most in a single game all-time) looked inward.

    The layers of Cam Newton's game - the lack of rushing production, the deep balls, etc. - have been dissected and will continue to be dissected throughout the course of the season.

    But in order for Carolina's quarterback to succeed in the pocket, he needs adequate time, and he hasn't always had it through two weeks.

    After Cam Newton's two underwhelming performances to start the 2019 NFL season, everyone has plenty of questions about the Panthers' quarterback.

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey lined up in the Wildcat position behind the center on fourth down and less than a yard from the Tampa Bay 2. Quarterback Cam Newton lined up outside right tackle Taylor Moton, hoping to draw the defense in his direction.

    Down six points with 1:28 remaining in what was, for all intents and purposes, a must-win game, the Carolina Panthers needed less than a yard to stay alive. Normally, the ball would start and end in Cam Newton's hands.

    But this isn't a normal Cam Newton.

    These key plays swung momentum and decided the Panthers 20-14 home loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, putting Carolina's record at 0-2.

    The Panthers first loss of the season to the Los Angeles Rams was understandable. The Rams are a well-coached, complete team that went all the way to the Super Bowl last year. The loss Thursday night to the Buccaneers is a lot tougher to swallow.


Another Panthers loss and a valuable lesson learned | Jeremy Igo/Carolina Huddle

    Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper has learned a valuable lesson over the past several months. Some of the most basic principles in his stock market empire can be applied just as effectively to football.

    Buy low, sell high.
