- It should be no surprise that there is a strong correalation between the improved play of the offensive line and the fact that they have had a starting five who has played together almost every snap the past four weeks. Since the Panthers were able to settle on a starting line-up and more importantly have stayed healthy, the run game has come alive and the quarterbacks are getting decent pass protection.
- Jonathan Stewart has been playing very well, arguably the best four week stretch of his career, rushing for 437 yards since the bye week. One of the reasons for this is he has been the primary running back and hasn't had to split touches with DeAngelo Williams. It will be interesting to see what the snap count breakdown will be when, or if, Williams returns this season.
- Rookie Adarius Glanton saw the most playing time of the season, stepping in for the injured A.J. Klein. He played 27 snaps out of a possible 47 snaps against the Browns. He finished the game with six tackles.
- Even though he continues to struggle, defensive tackle Star Lotulelei continues to see plenty of playing time. He was on the field for 64 percent of the snaps but is not producing like he did his rookie year. He finished the game with only one tackle but was not able to get any quarterback pressure.
