Panther Insider Player of the Game: Steve Smith

Steve Smith came up huge on Sunday for the Panthers and was named Panther Insider Player of the Game for his career day against the Bengals

Charlotte, NC - Steve Smith has had his troubles with his teammates over the recent weeks but Sunday he had a career day.  Just alone on returning punts he had 2 touchdowns and 153 yards on only 3 returns that is an average of 51.0 with a long of 87 yards to break the game wide out for the Panthers.

"I didn't do anything special," Smith said of the returns. "They were just blocking. It was me and the kicker; if I didn't make the kicker miss, obviously I don't need to be playing."

But Smith also scored a touchdown catching the ball as well and had 144 yards receiving on 5 catches.  He had a career-high 313 total yards on Sunday and help towards making his teammates forget what has happened in the past weeks.
