Thoughts on the Carolina Panthers’ 21-13 victory against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on Sunday:

What it means: This isn’t going to suddenly turn around what has been a brutal season for Carolina. But it’s going to go a long way in stopping some of the bleeding. The Panthers snapped a five-game losing streak and improved their record to 2-6. An impressive win on the road might be a step toward coach Ron Rivera keeping his job after the season. But Rivera needs some more victories to solidify his status.

An Armanti Edwards sighting: Edwards made what was easily the biggest play in his time in Carolina. Leading 14-6 early in the fourth quarter with the ball deep in their own territory, the Panthers surprisingly didn’t get conservative. Instead, they took a shot downfield to the seldom-used Edwards. Cam Newton hit Edwards with a deep pass that ended up going for 82 yards and that set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Newton.

What I liked: Carolina’s defense. This unit has drawn tons of criticism, and it generally has been deserved. But Carolina’s defense came through in a big way Sunday. It wasn’t a perfect day, as the Redskins finished with 346 yards of total offense. But the Panthers held the Redskins to two field goals until the Redskins scored a touchdown with less than two minutes remaining. That's a pretty solid defensive performance. Also, defensive end Greg Hardy, who looked like a bust early in his career, continues to show signs he might be developing into a reliable pass-rusher.

Newton’s efficient day: The quarterback has been drawing a lot of criticism in recent weeks. But it’s hard to criticize Newton’s performance against the Redskins; he didn’t have a turnover while completing 13 of 23 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown and rushing eight times for 37 yards and a touchdown.

What’s next: The Panthers are home next Sunday with Denver. This will be a homecoming for Denver coach John Fox, who coached the Panthers from 2002 through 2010 and took the franchise to its only Super Bowl.

I didn't know 6th round picks could be bust. That's new to me.

I don't know about the "bust" label. But there were some questions about him.

I'm thrilled he's showing up and I hope they can keep that fire lit under his ass. He's a beast when he's going full speed.

Dude, he was a 6th round pick. There is no way a 6th round pick can be a bust. Absolutely no way.

Which is precisely why I said I didn't know about the word "bust".

But there were questions about whether he'd pan out. Yas phrased it terribly but the sentiment is just fine.

When you take a person in the 6th round. They usually don't pan out. His wording was terrible.

Greg Hardy is showing endless potential. If he stays dedicated the sky is his limit. However, if a 6th rd pick has trouble staying motivated every week I'm not sure what to think would happen once he gets paid.

Might not be able to label a 6th rounder a "bust" but most of us had very high expectations after his rookie season, only to be let down in his play last year.

Yea agree. I don't see anything wrong with what Yas said.

If anyone forgot, Hardy was at one time being considered a very very high 1st rounder but which injuries plagued him, he fell into the 6th round.

Lol now. But looked more like the opposite a couple weeks ago.

Guess Hardy really took what happened in practice seriously. He's a totally different player now. And I love seeing Hardy penetrate from the inside. I told ya this kid is big enough to play DT.
