- The Panthers defense has not been able to stop the explosive plays, giving up 5 plays in the first half. Through the air, the Panthers allowed receptions of 59 yards to Jordy Nelson and 47 yards to Randall Cobb. The ground wasn’t much better giving up three rushing plays of 10+ yards, one to Eddie Lacy, James Starks and even one scramble by Aaron Rodgers.
- The Panthers offense has not been much better, even with the return of running back Jonathan Stewart, with only 113 yards of total offense. It seemed like once the Packers got up 14-0, the Panthers offensive game plan went out the window. The Packers are the worst against the run and Carolina has only eight rushing attempts in the first half.
- The biggest problem for the offense was that they could not sustain any drives. On the team’s six drives in the first half and four of them were three and out for the Panthers. The combination of the Packers ability to score quickly and the Panthers inability to extend drives allowed the lead to balloon as quickly as it did.
- The Panthers will get the ball to start the second half and if the offense is able to score a touchdown it will change the momentum in this game. It will put the pressure on the Panthers defense to find a way to slow this Green Bay defense. Even though it is 28-3, this game is far from over.
