When Steve Wilks took over as interim head coach for the Panthers, they were 1-4 and traded away their best player one game later. They're now 4-4 under Wilks, just one game out of the division lead, play hard and with a toughness that is unmistakable. Huge credit to Wilks.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
Panthers broke out the ride-read package that drive and went right down the field. Raheem Blackshear's 8-yard TD run puts Panthers up 27-17 w/ 6:57 left. Every run that drive by Blackshear or Chuba Hubbard.
Back-to-back wins for Sam Darnold and the @Panthers! #CARvsSEA pic.twitter.com/T14eZ5JzOe
D'Onta Foreman has 11 carries for 34 yards. Longest rush is 7 yards. Have to think his foot is a factor.
Terrace Marshall Jr with the catch of the day 😳 pic.twitter.com/IJjcLt8GG9
On October 10, David Tepper said Steve Wilks can earn the title of head coach in Carolina beyond 2022 if he does an "incredible job." He's doing an incredible job.
Yes, the Broncos press box was buzzing after that Mahomes insane throw. Looking around, saw lots of dropped jaws, lots of laughing, lots of shaking heads in disbelief, lots of smiles. Mahomes is simply the Michael Jordan of the NFL.
Panthers get to first-and-goal at the 3 and Ben McAdoo calls four consecutive passes. This team's identity is the OL and the run game. Bad sequence there. Bad.
Asked if they seriously believed this might be happening, Jeremy Chinn replied: "Don't have no reason not to. Even if it's only us in the whole world, that's what all need."
Today, JJ Jansen will stand alone atop the Panthers' all-time games played list when he steps on the field for the 222nd time. Here's more on how Jansen got to this point, and how much coffee he actually drinks in a day. panthers.com/news/the-day-j…
Jaycee Horn said he was in on hands team at the end because DJ Moore was hurt. Panthers had no update on Moore after the game, just the 2nd in his career without a catch.
Ickey Ekwonu's sackless streak is over after 10 games. Bruce Irvin beats him for a big sack of Darnold. Panthers settle for an Eddy Pineiro FG after the Henderson INT. They lead 20-7 with 2:09 left.
Frankie Luvu extends his career high to 5.0 sacks this season.
Raheem Blackshear, 8-yard touchdown run. Carolina just went 74 yards in 10 plays with only 1 completion.
On Friday, Carolina Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks said he expected every player on Week 14’s final injury report, particularly those marked as “questionable,” to be a go against the Seattle Seahawks. Well, maybe we have to expect the unexpected.
Starting safety Xavier Woods and starting linebacker Cory Littleton, two of the four players in question, have been ruled inactive for this afternoon. Joining them on the sideline—as healthy scratches—will be offensive lineman Larnel Coleman, wide receiver Rashard Higgins and defensive tackle Daviyon Nixon
Remember when Panthers rookie Ikem Ekwonu was struggling and giving up sacks? Probably not. It was 594 offensive snaps ago. A check-in on the 2022 draft class, leading with the franchise left tackle. theathletic.com/3976961/2022/1…
Johnny Hekker only punted twice Sunday. That's it, that's the tweet.
Keith Taylor, who went to Washington, nearly comes up with a pick. Good coverage on deep ball to DJ Metcalf.
Panthers needed pressure and got it from Shaq Thompson to force a punt.
Panthers S Xavier Woods (knee) is inactive. He was questionable coming in.
FYI … this sack has now been split with Brian Burns, so he's at 10.5 this year twitter.com/PanthersBill/s…
Moore didn't catch any of his three targets and rushed twice for just six yards in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Seahawks.
Moore was a non-factor as quarterback Sam Darnold managed just 120 passing yards. While the team tried incorporating Moore by giving him two of its 46 total rushing attempts, the wideout gained minimal yardage. Although Carolina's victory should help Moore reconcile with Sunday's dud individual outing, he'll no doubt be eager for a vastly improved performance in Week 15 versus Pittsburgh.
Schefter: Tony Jones to start over Travis Homer dlvr.it/SfBhF0
We don’t have a whole lot of comparisons for what Geno Smith is doing this season. For any quarterback to struggle their first two years, play backup for six and then suddenly become a top-five talent is some rare territory.
How do we celebrate a QB who hasn’t had any real hype going since he first entered the league in 2013? One fan came up with a good idea. Here’s how Smith’s 30 for 30 promo might go…
“If they made a 30 for 30 on Geno Smith”
This really puts it all in perspective. What a comeback for Geno Smith. (Credit: @twelve85/TikTok) pic.twitter.com/9KaSEJyNg
With 102 more receiving yards, Seahawks DK Metcalf will become the 5th player since the merger with 900+ receiving yards and 5+ receiving TD in each of his first 4 seasons. The others: Randy Moss, A.J. Green, Michael Thomas, Joey Galloway. Seahawks-Panthers today. pic.twitter.com/NNjWDUd1PF
#Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III, who is questionable with an ankle injury, is not expected to play today, sources say. Meanwhile, WR DK Metcalf (hip) should be good to go. Both are listed as questionable.
Panthers' 17-point lead is down to 3. Jason Myers' 27-yd FG makes it 20-17. Seahawks' last two scoring drives set up by long returns by Godwin Igwebuike.
Just your standard Tyler Lockett crazy catch in the back of the end zone #CARvsSEA pic.twitter.com/oYePDONpPr
Marquise Goodwin up to 67 yards after a leaping 14-yard grab.

Pretty clear to Uchenna Nwosu and the Seahawks defense: It's on them, and teams are just running all over them. @thenewstribune pic.twitter.com/kuxGWKgeck
Johnathan Abram making his Seahawks debut at safety, blitzing off the edge there forcing quick short throw.
And now the Seahawks three and out as Darnold is sacked by Darrell Taylor on third down....
.@Seahawks injury update: NT Al Woods is Doubtful (heel).
yeah, so far Panthers could complain about that and a no facemask call on Bruce Irvin on the DJ Moore catch on the opening drive twitter.com/KalebCombs/sta…
In Seattle, our source on this no-news is Pete Carroll. From Friday. twitter.com/adamschefter/s…
Coby Bryant with a third-down pass breakup. Panthers go three-and-out.
Cody Barton with good downfield coverage to help kill a flea flicker attempt by Carolina.
Shane Waldron loving the screen passes today and i'm not sure why
Ken Walker and DeeJay Dallas are unlikely to play dlvr.it/SfBLkR

Haven't seen Tre Brown yet. Looks like the whole rotate-the-left-cornerbacks thing is done. It's Michael Jackson's job.
