Tolbert running wild on his old team, Panthers up 14-0

AP

The Panthers have taken advantage of a Philip Rivers fumble, and the realization they were built to play power football to take a 14-0 lead over the Chargers.

Former Chargers fullback Mike Tolbert has scored a pair of touchdowns on 1-yard plunges, and the Panthers have called 11 runs and just six Cam Newton passes.

Brilliant.

The Panthers are capable of playing well that way, but have chosen not to too often, which is a large part of the reason they’re 4-9.
