The Carolina Panthers (1-1) notched their first win of the preseason with a victory over the Kansas City Chiefs (1-1). There were some good plays made by the Panthers and some that will require the team to do some work later this week. For a game that marked the return of Cam Newton, this tilt was highlighted by the running game—and none of it involved Newton.
With two weeks left to go in the preseason, some players left an indelible mark on the field with the fans and perhaps with the coaches. Rosters will be trimmed down, so every positive thing counts. For a meaningless exhibition game, it's the only thing that counts.
