In one of the most exciting match ups in Week 9, the Green Bay Packers travel to Carolina to do battle with the undefeated Panthers.
Green Bay lost their undefeated status last week as the Broncos and Peyton Manning took it to them on Sunday Night Football.
The Panthers come in off another win, this time as they defeated the Colts in a Monday Night Football classic. Carolina blew a late 2nd half lead and then used two overtime field goals to steal the win back.
For the first time all season, the Green Bay Packers looked out matched and over powered. In their battle with the Broncos on Sunday Night Football, Peyton Manning continued to find receivers over the middle of the field consistently and the defense had Aaron Rodgers off balanced all night.
Green Bay’s typically high powered offense was held to just 140 yards. That comes as a major shocker as they’ve averaged 332.1 yards per game this season.
The 10 point total thrown up was also well below their season average of 24.9. QB Aaron Rodgers finished 14 of 22, but threw for just 77 yards in the contest. It was clearly Rodgers worst performance of his career as the offensive line continued to struggle to protect him.
Rodgers was sacked three times which is rare as he is typically given plenty of time in the pocket.
Things won’t be any easier for Rodgers and the Packers attack as the Panthers defense is one of the best in the league. Expect him to try and work a lot of short routes in to James Jones and Randall Cobb, who have 803 yards combined on the season.
Even protesters of Bank of America can’t stop the Carolina Panthers right now. While protesters dangled themselves from the upper deck during the Monday Night Football game, the Panthers continued their trek toward an undefeated season.
The Panthers showed their grit and fight all night long as they blew a late 2nd half lead and were forced to go into overtime.
After the teams exchanged field goals, the game went on and Carolina’s Graham Cano drilled a 52 yard field goal to send the fans home happy and send the Panthers home 7-0.
QB Cam Newton finished with 248 yards and a couple touchdowns in the game. While the turnovers piled up for the Panthers, it was the downpour of rain that caused a lot of havoc.
RB Jonathan Stewart continues to lead the charge with QB Cam Newton in the backfield. The Panthers average 144.0 rush yards per game. Expect the duo to have a big game on Sunday as Green Bay allows 124.4 yards on the ground per game.
