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!
