The Carolina Panthers are 8-0. Let that sink in for a moment. A team that is missing their best wide receiver (Kelvin Benjamin, out for the year with a pre-season knee injury) and a bunch of no names (outside of Luke Kuechly) on defense, and they are 8-0. I finally have to say it - the Carolina Panthers have earned my respect, and now I think they deserve yours
They say that defense wins championships. If that is the case then the Carolina Panthers might be well on their way to a Superbowl is linebacker Luke Kuechly keeps having impressive performances like he has so far this preseason. When the Panthers took down the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, 34-27, Kuechly put on a defensive clinic, making it incredibly difficult for the Ravens’ offense to get anything going.
