Power rankings are starting to come out. Don't expect to move up until we actually win a game.

 

 

ESPN #24 (-1)

 

Career lows in offense for Cam Newton, but the rush defense looked great. The Seahawks had 26 rush yards after contact, their second-lowest game total since the start of 2011.

 

 

FOX Sports #27 (+1)

 

The Panthers invested the 14th and the 44th overall picks of the 2013 NFL Draft on interior defensive linemen and it showed on Sunday. The Panthers' defense may be one of the most improved units in all of football this season but their offense simply didn't show up on Sunday.

 

 

CBS Sports #24 (-5)

 

So much for the new-look offense helping to get Cam Newton going. They struggled offensively against the Seahawks.

 

 

SB Nation #20 (-2)

 

The defense is worlds better than it was last year, thanks largely to an upgraded defensive line and another season of Luke Kuechly backing them up. Unfortunately, the offense doesn't look any less confused than it did last year.

 

 

Walter Football #20 (+5)

 

 

PFT #27

 

Playing a good team close at home no longer will cut it in Carolina.

 

 

LI Newsday #27 (-3)

 

Not a good way for newly named captain Cam Newton to get things rolling. Manages only 125 passing yards against the Seahawks in a desultory 12-7 home loss. Not a good day for new offensive coordinator Mike Shula either.

 

 

Yahoo #17 (-6)

 

If DeAngelo Williams doesn't fumble at the 8-yard line, they're probably top 10. Alas, they're here.

 

 

Reddit r/NFL #20 (-2)

 

A late fumble from RB Williams wrecked a chance to eke out a win against the Seahawks in a game that resembled a street fight more than a football game. While Panthers fans are understandably crushed, the defense proved to be monstrous while Cam Newton was quietly efficient behind a strong run game.

Meh. I'll take their respect when we take out first win.

Don't really care about the rankings but the rationale is lolworthy.

Bills have to be feeling sick as well, almost beat a top 5 team a week before, only moved up one spot to 29.

Pretty sad when Yahoo out-thinks the rest of the sporting pundits

20th on Reddit:

The descriptions make it obvious which sites actually watched the game and the ones who just took the stat line.

Interesting piece on Seattle's ranking

 

The message here: Don't panic. Over half the teams in the league would've fallen to the Panthers on Sunday; Wilson, who was 14-of-18 passing for 198 yards and a touchdown in the second half, was a big reason they didn't.

LOL, and then you rank us at 21 after dropping 2 points down?
