And now the Packers will give them a first down with another neutral zone infraction, this time by Kenny Clark.
This game is only going to change with turnovers.
That's where those turnovers are going to come from, when Newton tries to throw the ball down the field. You need to get him throwing as much as possible.
Matthews is clearly overplaying Newton on the read option. It's going to mean no backside pursuit on the running back.
It is when you have Morgan Burnett trying to cover McCaffrey. They have to get a corner in there. He's going to get smoked all game long.
They'd have to go with one of the undrafted rookies. But you can't expect Burnett to cover McCaffrey. It's not going to happen.
Panthers have moved the ball up and down the field despite their leading receiver, Funchess, not catching a single pass.
Cam Newton is 8 of 10 for 84 yards and a TD, 135.0 rating.
Packers had about six guys spread out on Funchess and Olsen. Newton smartly throws it away.
Ahmad Brooks took a chance there and went after the back. If Newton keeps it, look out. Heck of a play though.
Depends on the draft. It's one of those things where they'll slow play it.
If I'm the Packers, I don't blitz here. You have to keep the play in front of you. Nothing behind the safeties.
Packers in dime with Whitehead in the slot.
Played zone the way it should be played. Kept Funchess and Olsen doubled.
Gano from 33 yards out is good. PANTHERS 10, PACKERS 7. 9:02 FIRST QUARTER.
Packers have given up 136 yards and 4 of 5 third-down conversions on Carolina's first two drives.
