- The coaching staff started pulling their starters at the end of the third quarter and the Carolina Panthers only had two players play every offensive snap. Right tackle Mike Remmers and left guard Andrew Norwell were on the field for all 65 snaps and played 25% more snaps than the rest of the offense.
- One interesting note was that once again Philly Brown got the start over Devin Funchess but the rookie wide receiver played only three less snaps than Brown. The two wide receivers had a very similar stat line as well as both wide receivers caught three passes but Brown had more yards (59 vs. 25).
- The Panthers kept two key players out in the second half due to injury concerns and was the reason Jonathan Stewart and Greg Olsen both had low snap counts. Stewart only played 19 snaps but received 10 carries and picked up 75 yards on the ground with one touchdown. Olsen is a player who has missed a handful of snaps all season and the offense certainly missed his presence in the second half.
- The defense only had one player play every defensive snap and that was safety Kurt Coleman. He made the most of those snaps though as he extended his streak to five straight games with an interception with a pick in the fourth quarter.
- In his second game with the Panthers, Cortland Finnegan was on the field for roughly the same number of snaps playing 33 against the Falcons. The Panthers' secondary took a major hit with the loss of Bene Benwikere to a fractured leg and Finnegan will have a key role down the stretch.
- One player who was not happy with his playing time was Charles Johnson, who went to Twitter after the game to voice that frustration. He was third among the defensive end in snaps with 34 and that number would have most likely been higher if this game was closer. Johnson has been frustrated this year after spending a majority of it on the injured reserve and wants to play as much as humanly possible. The coaching staff though has to find that happy balance of keeping players healthy but avoiding them becoming rusty.
