    Week 5: Bears (12) @ Panthers (17)

    Panthers outlast Bears, improve to 3-2.
    Charlotte, NC- Pepper Hicks Reporting

    The Panthers sneak out a huge victory against the previously undefeated Bears. The weather was atrocious with 12mph winds and heavy rain the entire game. With that there were surprisingly no fumbles, though the Bears took heavy injuries through out the game. ROLB Pisa Tinoisamoa broke his collarbone and will miss 6 weeks and FB Jason Davis will miss 1 week with a dislocated elbow.

    The game started with both defenses not allowing any room for either offense. At the end of the first quarter, Matt Moore found Steve Smith wide open for the touchdown. Smith made a incredible bobbled catch to give the Panthers the lead 7-0. With under 2 minutes left in the first half the Bears managed to put up 2 FG's to cut the lead to 1. (7-6)

    The second half was more of the same, strong defense. Neither team giving up much. The Panthers were able to get in the redzone on a long pass to Steve Smith but the Bears D held and Matt Moore and company had to settle for the 3 points. Up 10 to 6 the Panthers D needed a big stop. They got something even better. Dan Connor dropped back in to coverage over the middle and picked off Jay Cutler to give the ball back to his offense. But then just a couple plays later Matt Moore gave it right back, throwing a stupid throw in tight coverage, which was picked off by CB. Tim Jennings, (who was in on the nickle because of the Injury to Zackary Bowman who was hurt and had to leave the game. Jennings returned the INT 74 yards for the score. The Bears missed the XP so their lead was on 2. (12-10)

    In the 4th the Panthers drove down the field and once again penetrated the redzone. After getting down to the 2 yard line. The Bears stuffed the Panthers on 1st and 2nd down. On 3rd they handed the ball off again and D.Williams found the end zone from 3 yards out. Now up 17 to 12 the Panthers needed to stop Cutler and the Bears. The Bears managed 1 first down but were unable to keep the drive alive so with about 4 minutes left in the game, they punted the ball back to the Panthers. Panthers faced 3rd downs on this drive converting all 3. The first on was 3rd and 4 and a 9 yard pass to TE. Gary Barnidge got them the first, which forced the Bears to start spending timeouts. Then again on 3rd and 1, D.Williams powered his way for the first. One more time at 3rd and 4 and this J.Stewart provided the yardage for the first. Matt Moore then took a couple knees and the Panthers picked up their 3rd win of the season.

    It's a big win for the Panthers who had lost 2 straight going into the game. With a bye week coming up they have some time to prepare before taking on the 49ers, another tough defense. At 3-2 the Panthers have something to be happy about.

    Thanks, I have a rough schedule to start the year, but it gets a bit easier after my next 3 games. It could come down to the 2 games I have against the Falcons in week 14 and 17, depending on how the Saints respond to the Brees injury and how well Obisdan is with the dirty birds.
