Panthers trail 24-20 at the half. Last season they didn't exceed 20 points until Oct. 24. And that was for an entire game.
Their high score last season was 23. They beat San Francisco 23-20 and lost to Cleveland 24-23.
Cam Newton threw for 199 yards in the half against Chicago today and rushed for 30. DeAngelo Williams ran for 47, Jonathan Stewart for 23. Steve Smith caught 132 yards worth of passes.
That was the most entertaining half Carolina has played this season or last.
We saw halves like this one last season when we watched other games on TV.
