The Carolina Panthers' defense has done well thus far, but they need more production out of the offense. Steve Smith hasn't gotten involved and Cam Newton's accuracy has been off and on—but mostly off.
Blaine Gabbert has been under a lot of pressure, and I only expect him to play better in the second half. This Carolina secondary has been mistake-prone, and it only takes one play to get the Jaguars back in the game.
Here are some adjustments the Panthers must make to pull away from Jacksonville in the second half and come away with Cam Newton's first victory as an NFL quarterback.
