    Carolina shuts out the Atlanta offense in route to 24-7 victory.

    After nearly upsetting the Bucs in week 2 the Carolina Panthers came to play in week 3. Allowing just 77 offensive yards the Panther Defense reaked havoc on Atlanta rookie QB B.J Hartley all day sacking him 6 times and intercepting him 4 times. Atlanta's lone score came at the hands of a Cam Newton ill advised pass to the wrong side of the field that was picked off and takin' to the house by Atlanta CB Desmond Turfant. If you didn't know any better you'd of thought Cam was controlled via PS4 controller and the wrong button was smashed with pressure mounting.

    Carolina RB Schon Easley capped off the Panthers first scoring drive with a 6 yard TD run in the first quarter. Atlanta tied the game early in the 3rd quarter when Trufant picked of Newton and ran 34 yards to paydirt. Graham Gano kicked a 32 yard FG and Easley added another TD run, this one from 2 yards out, putting the Panthers up 17-7 after 3 quarters of play.

    The Panthers Defense went after Atlanta's Rookie QB in the fourth quarter sacking him multiple times then capped off the games scoring when CB Demetrius McCray picked off the Rookie QB and returned the interception 27 yards ending any hope Atlanta had.

    GG Michael Overman was fun as always..see you in a few weeks
