It wasn’t pretty, but the Panthers gutted out a win on Thursday Night Football.

Despite the numbers you will see in the box score, this game was pretty much a big pile of steaming crap. Yes, the Panthers won the game, and Sam Darnold looked the part of a franchise quarterback in the second half, but they lost several key players to injuries that appear to be long term. Christian McCaffrey hurt his leg in the first half, Jaycee Horn hurt his leg in...

Panthers vs Texans: Defensive preview

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Panthers defense has been the best in the league through two weeks, and an undermanned Texans team gives them a chance to add to their resume.

The eight point spread reflects the...
