I'm cheating a little bit on this one, but based on how Carolina started the year on the ground and how they played this game, it's appropriate to include the whole unit.
Although the Panthers lost to the Chicago Bears today, they finally seemed to find the solid ground game that Came Newton was supposed to lean on throughout this season.
Newton still threw 46 passes and Carolina carried the ball just 26 total times, but the 169 yards and two touchdowns were a good sign.
Both the touchdowns were run by Newton, who had 35 yards on eight carries, but DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart made the most of their opportunities by combining for 134 yards on just 18 carries.
The biggest difference between this game and the last game was this stat: 3.2.
That's the difference between today's yards-per-carry average of 6.5 and the previous three games' average of 3.3.
It seems as though Carolina has finally found a running game to go with their surprisingly potent passing game, which could mean more wins for this struggling franchise.
