The Carolina Panthers entered the 2019 with a lot of hype. But after back to back home losses to the Rams and Bucs, that hype turned into questions. Questions about Cam Newton; questions about Ron Rivera; questions about talent; questions about chemistry. Everyone had questions about the Carolina Panthers, but the Carolina Panthers. After losses, guys in the locker room spoke confidently about their ability to play and win. Even ahead of week three, with Cam Newton ruled out with a lingering foot injury, Carolina’s belief in themselves never wavered. Two weeks and back to back wins later, those doubters have been silenced.
After Sunday’s road win against Houston, players admitted to hearing all the outside noise, but said their focus within their locker room and continued hard work is paying off.
