Carolina Panthers Host Cincinnati Bengals: Not Even Vegas Knows What Will Happen

It is Sunday, and that means FOOTBALL.
Our Carolina Panthers will have the world's biggest cat fight with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals come in today posting a 1-1 record, thanks to Mike Nugent's career game last week as they beat Baltimore with five field goals.
The Panthers on the other hand are coming off a dreadful game which resulted in a 20-7 defeat against the Bucs. Due to the lack of offense, head coach John Fox has decided to play the fiery Golden Domer in Jimmy Clausen.
Clausen is making his first NFL start and will look to fire up an offense that is averaging just 12.5 points per game. He gets to do it at home and against a Bengals team that is still working out the kinks.
The Bengals won the AFC North last year but were dominated by the Jets in the playoffs. This year they are struggling everywhere except the passing game. Unfortunately, Carolina's pass defense has had issues defending the big play.
Will Carolina's double trouble be the key and get the Panthers their first win, or will Batman and Robin swoop in to disappoint the home crowd? Also, will either defense return to last year's form, or will it be a shootout? This is one of the many questions listed and will be answered early.
Enjoy the game, and Go Panthers!
It was a close game until the fumble. Panther fans will go home disappointed once again.
Bengals 20 Panthers 7
The Panthers offense owes the defense a huge apology for their play. The Bills offense has score as many points today as the Panthers have all season
Besides the penalties, this has been a good drive. Why can't we move the ball like this the first three quarters?
4 fumbles and an interception today, wow
I wonder if the defense will go on strike until the offense stops turning over the ball
What a game changer, from driving to midfield to three plays and a touchdown. Thanks Stewart
Bengals 20 Panthers 7
The umpteenth fumble for the panthers, get these guys some stick'em
Smith's first catch comes 5 minutes into the 4th quarter
Williams with a huge 14 yard run, FIRST DOWN
THE FIRST SACK BY A PANTHERS DEFENSIVE LINEMAN AND WHAT TIMING, 10 YARD SACK!
here we go defense, big 3rd down
And the offense goes three and out
Defense does great job in short field, only allows long field goal.
Bengals 13 Panthers 7
Should've gone for it on 4th and 1, even if it was on our own 20.
Again with the fumbles, Clausen's the QB version of AP. At least we recovered this one.
Way to go defense, good stand. Time to ride the momentum highway, COME ON OFFENSE!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! The Carolina Panthers have scored their first rushing touchdown of the year. Stewart for 1 yard.
Bengals 10 Panthers 7
Carolina's on the 1, can they do it?
Clausen did it again, 13 yards to King. Can they possibly score? Probably shouldn't dream.
Clausen finally completes a pass, to Gettis for 14 yards
Panthers defense with another 3rd down stop. This defense has done everything possible to keep the team in the game. The offense has disappointed them for 2 seasons now. It's time they step up.
Panthers escape late error
Bengals 10 Panthers 7 at the Half
UPDATE: Fox looking at Armanti Edwards or Sir Pur to come in at QB for the second half
Clausen fumbles, again. WHY
Clausen is sacked by Rucker for the first of the game
UPDATE: The Cleveland Browns are down 14-10 to the Ravens. The Browns offense is better than the Panthers.
