CAROLINA AT TAMPA BAY (THURSDAY NIGHT)

THE FACTS

-A year after allowing 22.7 PPG, the Panthers are currently second in the NFL with just 13.8 PPG allowed (behind only Kansas City).

-After giving up no more than 18 points a game in their first four losses, Tampa Bay's allowed 31 in two straight losses to sub-.500 teams.

KEY MATCHUP: Mike Glennon's been far from incompetent, despite his circumstances. He's thrown five TDs against three picks across three starts, but is averaging 5.55 YPA throwing. Without the injured Doug Martin, his short-game takes a hit.

Carolina's 78.12 Defensive Passer Rating is eighth best in the NFL, and their nine picks are tied for sixth most. Glennon will find it difficult to throw deep, especially with a heavy rush (19 sacks) in his face.
