  • The Carolina Panthers changed up their gameplan a bit this past Sunday against the Tennessee Titans as they relied more on the run, calling eight more runs than passes against the Titans. The team also continues to rely more and more on two tight end set as Greg Olsen played every snap and Ed Dickson played 69% if the offensive snaps. The Panthers' tight ends responded combining for 11 receptions on 11 targets for 101 receiving yards and one touchdown catch by Dickson.
  • One thing that is interesting from the game on Sunday was the fact that Fozzy Whittaker did not play a single offensive snap. The Panthers' backup running back hasn't been heavily involved this year but it looks as his playing time went to Mike Tolbert this week. Tolbert has seen his snap count increase steadily over the past four weeks from 20 snaps against the Philadelphia Eagles to 28 yesterday against the Titans.

Kurt Coleman FS 46 100%
Luke Kuechly LB 46 100%
Josh Norman CB 46 100%
Kawann Short DT 40 87%
Charles Tillman CB 39 85%
Jared Allen DE 39 85%
Bene Benwikere CB 31 67%
Roman Harper SS 29 63%
Star Lotulelei DT 29 63%
Kony Ealy DE 28 61%
Mario Addison DE 17 37%
Tre Boston FS 17 37%
Kyle Love DT 15 33%
A.J. Klein LB 13 28%
Ryan Delaire DE 9 20%
Shaq Thompson LB 9 20%
Wes Horton DE 7 15%


  • This was by far the lightest workload for this defense as the Panthers' were on the field for only 46 plays against the Titans, which is a season-low. This was a good game for some of the veterans on this defense like Roman Harper and Jared Allen, who the coaching staff has been trying to limit their snaps to keep them fresher later into the season.
  • For the second consecutive week, rookie Shaq Thompson saw his snaps limited as he played only nine against the Titans after playing only five against the Packers. The Panthers' turned more to A.J. Klein on Sunday who played four more snaps than Thompson. There is no question that Thompson is a special athlete and should develop into a quality starter in the future but the coaching staff may limit his playing time as a rookie.
