Ok and to close out my plethora of bookmarked stats from week 2, here's the links to Will Bryan's week 2 Stats & Superlatives:
Here were just a few of the headlines.... so many great stats, snippets & factoids!
The Panthers held New Orleans to 128 yards, the fewest allowed in the 54-game all-time series with the Saints, and the fewest for New Orleans under head coach Sean Payton, who took over in 2006.
Carolina recorded four sacks and had two interceptions. The Panthers' 10 sacks in the season's first two weeks are second-most through two games in franchise history (12, 1998).
The Panthers held the Saints to just 48 yards on the ground with 2.8 yards per carry. 93 rush yards allowed through the first two games of a season are the fewest in franchise history.
Carolina's defense held the Saints to a combined 2-of-13 on third and fourth downs. On the season, Carolina's defensive third-down percentage of 25.0 is half of last year's total and ranks second-best in the NFL after Sunday's early afternoon games.
Interesting given the Panthers coaching staff's promise to try and increase the role of TEs in our offense.
It was good to see The Darnold => Arnold connection begin to get established. Want to see MORE!!!
