The league-wide epidemic of safeties hasn’t made it to Charlotte yet.
But that’s perhaps the only way someone’s going to score, based on early indications.
The Panthers and Seahawks combined for a whopping 91 yards in the first quarter, which makes it seem unnecessary to call it a scoreless first quarter.
The Panthers also had to adjust up front, as right guard Garry Williams was carted off with a left leg injury. That killed the left guard by committee plan, as starter Chris Scott slid to the right guard spot, allowing veteran Travelle Wharton some full-time work.
UPDATE 1:49 p.m. ET: The Seahawks did get a field goal to open the second, but this game looks destined for single-digits.
