Some fans may call these wins frustrating and gut wrenching. I see it as transforming the Panthers into a battle tested group. This is something that is a must have if you plan on winning in the playoffs.

 

My day started at the Clevelander Hotel on South Beach with some great Panthers fans, let by our very own RoaringRiot. I'd like to give a big thank you to Zack for his hospitality.

Cam started the day in his usual fashion...ie like a playfull 12 year old. This guy loves the game.

Also, I would like you all to just think for a minute about how lucky we are to have Graham Gano. Easily the best kicker we have had in many season.

The day started off well enough, with pressure being applied to Ryan Tannehill regularly.

But unfortunately the Panthers offense, despite the efforts of Deangelo Williams, forgot to play for most of the first half.

In the second half, the Panthers needed a spark. Cam Newton rose to the occasion and began to take over the game.

Which ended in a great touchdown run, and one of my favorite shots of him that I have ever taken...

It was time for the Panthers defense to follow Cam's lead. Thomas Davis was solid in coverage, forcing a key drop.

The Panthers defense began to physically harass Tannehill to give the offense one last chance to win the game.

Sometimes it seemed the Panthers defense was just holding on by a glove...

Greg Hardy did his job in stopping the run and was key in this victory.

Luke Kuechly orchestrated another stop and seemed both exhausted and satisfied.

It was then time for the offense to once again win the game on a late 4th quarter drive. Who did they put at the lead of the charge? None other than Mike "Tugboat" Tolbert who rumbled his way to the goal line.

To be fair to #28, I'd close my eyes if that was the view as well.

 

After a Cam Newton touchdown to Greg Olsen, it was up to the Special Teams to prevent a long return, and you can credit Brandon Williams with the tackle. Many of us have high hope for Williams. If he can start to contribute on special teams, it may lead to bigger and better things.

Overall it was a great game Panthers fans should be completely proud of. Any road win in the NFL is big.

Love the shot of Brandon Williams. I am glad he contributed I was wondering did he even get on the field and your photo confirmed that he did.

Always a treat when Zod comes by your tailgate to hang out... Especially on a road game. The Roaring Riot represent well in Miami and despite all of the weak attempts by Fins "fans" to knock us off our game, we never doubted and cheered "Let's go Panthers" the entire way out of the stadium.
