Panthers are not playing that well. They have beat some very very shitty teams. The only win that the Panthers can hang their hat on is the SF win AND AGAIN they almost gave it away in the 4th. The defense beat the crap out of Kapernick, but Brady is not going to let that happen.
I hope I am wrong...but why doesn't someone on here tell me why the Panthers will actually beat the Patriots besides providing some fanatical BS that amounts to nothing.
I believe the Panthers make the playoffs this year, but I also believe RIvera is a horrible coach and we can not win games against well coached winning teams....SF SHOULD have won....watch the game again.....some freaking lack of ball control in the 4th quarter that the Panthers have shown for 3 seasons under Rivera.
Good football teams SHOULD beat the crap out of very shitty teams. Great teams should beat the crap out of them consistently.
Look at the Colts, regarded as a top 6 team this year by a lot of people, destroyed by the Rams.
Loot at the Seahawks, arguably a top 3 team this year, were on the ropes against the Bucs.
The reason I am confident against the Patriots: They cannot defend the run, and we have three quality running backs, and a Quarterback that can run better than any QB in the game. If you cannot stop the run, you are not going to beat this team.
Brady has been pressured a lot this year, is working with a young core of receivers, and has not looked as good as he has for the last decade. I also think that Luke and defend well against Gronk.
