Peyton is one of those players who incessantly studies game film and works to improve, so when he is met with a challenge more than once he normally succeeds when given the opportunity. There is one anomaly to this that was present over 5 games in 3.5 years, the Chargers. There have been a fair number of people to bring this up but few have actually looked at the numbers to see just how well he can call a game against Peyton. Under Rivera the Chargers held Peyton to a 75.2 qb rating over those five games, but more surprisingly, only 6.6 ypa and a 10td/13int ratio as well.

Part of Carolina's success against both the run and pass (3.6 and 6.2 ypa respectively since the bye) is down to disguise. Rivera and McDermott have done a great job of mixing up coverage, using zone blitzes, line twists and stunts to great effect, as shown by the remarkable improvement over the last three weeks. This becomes even more effective against a quarterback like Peyton who relies heavily on pre-snap reads in order to attack the defense, and has a tendency to become erratic in games where he can't trust those reads. If you make Peyton think in the pocket, you win the game.

Peyton is going to eat Norman for dinner.....slant, slant, slant, slant, double move TD.

We FINALLY need that video game offense to show up this year

Our defense will carry us this game like they've been doing all season. I like CJ, Hardy, Keek, TD and our secondary to get the best of Peyton Manning. Panthers D will not only shut down Peyton, but will score points this week.

I'm going to the game this weekend. Haven't been to one in about 3 years. Cannot wait!

This is a put up or shut up game for Rivera. Prob will cost him his job if he does not win.

I'm worried about Manning toying with our very young MLB and CB's.

Not really worried about Luke....doesn't mean I don't expect him to be caught once or twice though.

But I think our corners could be in for a long day. Manning is so good the pass rush almost works in reverse.....CBs have to set up the DL with good coverage for them to get to Manning. Coverage sacks.

Also, Nakamura doesn't need to play this week. heavy Martin usage is in order

Manning is going to get his. I just hope we hold them to some fg's in stead of TD's in the end zone. If we dont have a two possession lead in the fourth qtr it doesnt look good. Any given sunday ugh
