Bad defensive stand for Carolina on Miami's second drive. Panthers recovered a Miami fumble on their 1-yard-line but had 12 men on the field.
Panthers needed all 12. Panthers couldn't stop Reggie Bush, or anybody else. Although Miami QB Chad Henne failed to see receiver Brandon Marshall, who was wide open deep, he did methodically lead the Dolphins 80 yards in 12 plays. Running back Lex Hill scored on fourth down from the 1.
Panthers generated no pass rush, and Bush ran like the player New Orleans thought it drafted out of Southern California.
With less than a minute to go in the first quarter, Dolphins lead 7-0.
