KEYS TO THE GAME
Panthers: Delhomme is 5-0 in his past five starts and has completed 101 of 154 passes (65.6 percent) for 1,078 yards with 11 touchdowns and one interception, for a passer rating of 107. ... Robinson practiced on a limited basis Thursday. He probably remains a week away from getting back on the field. ... PR/KR Mark Jones could be cut Monday when the Panthers add Smith to the 53-man roster. With Robinson almost back and Smith also able to return punts, Jones will be expendable. ... Rookie S Charles Godfrey admitted Thursday he was the guilty party in giving up a 44-yard touchdown pass to Chris Chambers in his first game. However, as teammate Jon Beason said, "I think it was his only mistake. He played pretty well." Overall, Godfrey looks like he will be a pretty good player. ... Wharton missed his second straight day of practice Thursday. He's close to returning, but if the Panthers err on the side of caution, then Geoff Hangartner will get the start. ... Rosario returned to practice Thursday after missing some time with a foot sprain. He is expected to play Sunday, backing up starter Jeff King. Still, the Panthers will throw more to Rosario, last week's hero, than King.
