- This is game was over almost as soon as it started with the 59-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson. The Packers offense was firing on all cylinders and the Panthers defense looked out-matched in every facet. Entering this game, the Packers struggled gaining yards but had no problem today with 363 yards of total offense.
- This game seemed like the perfect opportunity to try and jumpstart the rushing offense for Carolina with the Packers being the worst in the NFL against the run. That didn’t happen due to their ineffectiveness early and the fact they fell behind quickly. A strong run game would have eaten up clock, kept Rodgers on the sideline and kept the Panthers defense a little fresher. Jonathan Stewart, who played for the first time since Week 3 ran 14 times for 55 yards and Cam Newton added 41 additional yards on seven carries. The Panthers are going to have to find a way to establish the run for this offense to be successful.
- The biggest issue for the Panthers offense against the Packers was their offensive line. Of the course of the game the Panthers lost two starters to injuries, tackle Byron Bell and guard Trai Turner, and disrupted this team the most. Cam Newton constantly had defenders in his face which affected his accuracy and ability to find the open receiver.
- At the end of the day, no matter how bad it looked it only counts as one loss in the record. Carolina needs to make sure this loss doesn’t linger past this week. They are still atop the division and have a huge game at home next week against Seattle.
