Panthers vs Patriots Preview
The Patriots improved to 2-0 in the preseason with a 22-17 road victory over the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.
Tom Brady sat again, leaving the snaps to veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer and rookie Jarrett Stidham, a fourth-round pick in April.
“It was good to see our guys compete out there today,” head coach Bill Belichick said, according to Patriots.com. “I thought we really gave a solid 60-minute effort in all three phases of the game. Obviously, the Titans are a good team, and they’re tough, physical team. It was a good challenge for us — a good matchup for us. It was a great week. We can learn from the week, learn from the game, just try to keep getting better here and grind it out until next week.”
Pats rookie running back Damien Harris, who missed the preseason opener with a wrist/hand injury, rushed 14 times for 80 yards. The third-round pick caught all four of his targets for another 23 yards.
“He’s done a good job. Obviously, he is still learning,” quarterback Brian Hoyer said, per Patriots.com. “At any position in this offense it takes a lot of hard work, it takes a lot of studying, it takes a lot of putting the time in. I think all of those guys – you could name all of those rookies – have done a good job of putting the time in and really asking good questions. He has great guys to learn from ahead of him and all of those guys. They are all coming along, and they are all putting in the work. It’s all about getting better and grinding through it and getting better one day at a time.”
The Panthers’ preseason mark fell to 1-1 on Friday as they lost 27-14 to the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo starting quarterback Josh Allen and his backup Matt Barkley tore up the Carolina defense, going 17-of-21 for 212 yards and a touchdown before undrafted free agent Tyree Jackson came in and struggled.
Carolina, who ranked 27th in sacks a season ago, recorded just one QB takedown on Friday. Over the offseason, they signed six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy to a one-year contract.
“Part of it being preseason is finding out where we look great and where we look terrible,”McCoy said after the loss, according to Panthers.com. “I’ve been a part of preseasons where we look like we’re unstoppable. Then we get to the regular season and we’re like, ‘What happened?’
“It’s preseason. You get a good gauge of where you’re at. Really, it’s a glorified practice. You want to come out and play well but you don’t panic. It’s early. It doesn’t count until the Rams come here.”
