Somehow the post-Rhule, post-McCaffrey, post-Anderson Panthers have found themselves on somewhat of a roll, having now gone 3-3 (3-0 at home) since firing their head coach, trading away their star running back and receiver, and having non-stop drama at the starting QB slot.
Yesterday the Panthers got payback against their 2016 Super Bowl rivals with a 25-15 victory over the Broncos in Uptown Charlotte.
Interim head coach Steve Wilks is now undefeated at home (3-0) and is continuing to strengthen our defense while adding some more strength to our offence.
Sam Darnold started his first game of the season as QB, completing 11 out of 19 throws for 164 yards with a touchdown. DJ Moore was his primary target, finishing the game with 103 receiving yards.

What did you think about yesterday’s game?
Do you think we have a shot at the playoffs (considering how terrible the NFC South is)?
