Jimmy Clausen led the Panthers to a touchdown on his first drive at Fan Fest. He was helped by a great catch by Steve Smith in front of rookie cornerback Kendric Burney. Smith spun the ball and Burney gently kicked it.
Tight end Greg Olsen made an even better catch in the end zone. Olsen tipped the ball, fell to the end zone turf and grabbed it before he landed.
Cam Newton's turn. Newton hit Gary Barnidge on the left side, hit rookie Kealoha Pilares over the middle, hit Mike Goodson twice on the right side, and Goodson ran the ball in for a TD.
