Steve Smith has produced just like Ron Rivera and the Carolina Panthers have expected to this season. But the head coach knows the team needs to find downfield targets besides Smith for the vertical passing game to be successful. Smith is the only listed wide receiver to have more than one catch for the Panthers in each of the past two games. No. 2 wideout Brandon LaFell had only one grab against the Giants and Falcons combined, and quarterback Cam Newton has spread the ball around to different targets in the past two games.
