Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy predicted he’d get 50 sacks this year.

For much of Sunday, it appeared he might.

Hardy was named NFC defensive player of the week after his three-sack outburst against the Giants.

He had plenty of company, as the Panthers registered seven sacks on the day.

Hardy now has 14.0 sacks in his last 15 games, an impressive pace for a guy looking for a new deal.
