Panthers win fifth straight, beat 49ers 10-9

Getty Images

The Panthers played like it was their Super Bowl.

And in many ways, it was.

The Panthers won the biggest game of the Ron Rivera era, beating the 49ers 10-9 with a dominant display of defense.

The Panthers had won four straight, and five of their last six, but they had done so against the dregs of the league. Going on the road against the defending NFC champs was going to be a different challenge.

The Panthers met that challenge, and then some, stifling the 49ers at every level in the second half. They even caught a few breaks late, with a Jonathan Stewart fumble bouncing to fullback Mike Tolbert as they worked to run out the clock.

They still had to play defense one last time, and Panthers cornerback Drayton Florence picked off Colin Kaepernick to end the game. They sacked Kaepernick six times, limiting the 49ers to 91 yards passing.

  1. And once again Harbaugh uses a TO incorrectly to cost his team some time unnecessarily. If he uses that last TO in front of the 2 minute warning then the clock stops after the next play and surely more than the 1:54 that was left by using the TO after the next play. There is not going to be a full 12 seconds that elapse during the course of this transition play, but once again he can’t figure out how to do simple math.

  2. Lol at Gantt trying so hard to downplay this win.

    The Panthers are one the NFL’s elite, led by one of the best young QBs in the NFL who wears a towel on his head and celebrates (gasp!)

    This wasn’t their Super Bowl. That’s still to come, led by Cam Newton and the league’s best D.

  3. Wait just a minute, the ‘niner fans all said how bad the Seahawks were because they had a hard time beating the Panthers on the road. I wonder what the whine will be now?

    That’s a tough team Panther faithful, congrats on the win from every Seahawk fan on the planet.

  4. In the immortal words of MC Hammer…..”Can’t touch this!……… Can’t touch this!” Haha niners. GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I said it coming into the week as 49ers were trashing talking other teams winning close games. Panthers have a nasty front seven and match up well because they can shut down the run and force you to load the box. I didn’t know their special teams was night and day better than San Fransisco’s.

    Colin Kaepernick looks terrible, he is without question a 1 read QB and if he feels pressure he is no better than a Christian Ponder. 90 yards/ 6 sacks and a game losing INT.

    Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy ate up Staley and Davis for lunch.

  6. did a Madden simulation where chiefs and panthers went to super bowl. its somewhat random with the game but still kinda funny now

  7. On behalf of the Seahawks fans, THANK you Carolina! The forty whiners are now THREE games behind Seattle. HA! No hard feelings to the Panthers about that week one game!

  8. Panthers are legit. That defensive front seven is nasty. I have never seen a head coach do a 180 on his coaching style for the better like Rivera has. In the past, they would have dropped back into prevent, gave up the late field goal, and lost. They stayed aggressive with the defense that is the catalyst in this winning streak this time.

  9. I don’t want to hear anymore mess about how the Panthers ‘haven’t beat any good teams’. They just went into Candlestick Park and shut down one of the league’s best. Get used to hearing the Panthers mentioned when playoffs are the discussion from now on.

  10. Great win by Carolina
    You won it with great defense !!

    The 49er offense looked WEAK !
    Gotta work on the passing game
    Kaep has to do a better job in the passing game
    Hasn’t done much this year, but we were able to get away with it

    Get it together 9ers

  11. I did some quick calculations and here are the numbers of opponents points scored through 9 games:

    1985 Bears: 124
    1986 Bears: 117
    2000 Ravens: 98
    2002 Bucs: 109
    2013 Chiefs: 111
    2013 Panthers: 115

    I’m not saying anything but I’m just saying.

    Little brother syndrome, huh ?

  13. Great job niners!!!! Looked like we did with jimmy raye! Why can’t they figure out how to pass? Wait and they think the niners are going to win in New Orleans, and against Seattle? Both will be lopsided! How you have 2 weeks to prepare for a game and can’t score a TD is beyond me. If they even make the playoffs there is no chance they go anywhere. We can’t beat Seattle! Especially with the offense that is on the field. Once again, great job boys. Way to show you are among the NFL’s elite!!!!

  14. That’s cute strategy, you can sit behind your MacBook and figure out the best time to call time outs but until your in his shoes and it’s happening in real time you have no clue what kinda pressure that is. No mater what or when he did whatever, you can’t stop Carolina’s D. It’s the best in the NFL right now

    Keep telling yourself that… you may be able to convince yourself.

  17. Ok someone has got to start talking about Romans horrible play calling. He is clueless in the passing game. Either get him some help with passing plays or replace him. It has nothing to do with the pressure. I am tired of our only deep pattern being run by a fullback that used to be a defensive end. Something has got to change or the Niners go nowhere but fishing at the end of the season.

    ……lame jokes seagull fans…..time will tell..after our niners destroy the panthers whom your adderall stuffed team barely beat. You guys should be biting your nails.
    __________________________________

    Man! If I had your crystal ball…well, I guess I would have a worthless paper weight. Go HAWKS!

  19. After that showing, I have to say that Kaepernick and Harbaugh need to stop doing commercials and focus on completing passes. A QB coach and we have the worst passing game in the league….this is getting really old.

    And once AGAIN, the only shining light in our offense was Gore.

  20. Everyone needs to calm down people act like the niners lost by 30 points to a scrub team… They lost by one point to the best defense in the nfl. Without V Davis n no Crabtree yet the passing game is going to struggle. Kaepernick struggled but give credit to panthers defense they have him no time to scan the field and pressured him all day. I don’t see Cam play that much better he also threw a pick and no touchdowns. This was a great defensive game I wish the niners would have recovered one of the fumbles at the end n kick the game winning field goal but oh well.

  21. Lmao 49ers suck, Colin kapernick is officially done worse passing o in the league, and don’t tell me it’s cause of injuries, they have a good run game which should open up the pass game, heck the Browns and jaguars have a better passing game lol

  22. Russell Wilson is on pace for the greatest first two years for a QB in NFL history. On the other hand Kaepernick suh-suh-sucks! That Carolina defense, that by the way Wilson on the road put up 320 yards 1 TD and a 120 qb rating on, dropped the hammer on silly Kaepernick. GO HAWKS

  23. Btw, the people bringing up Alex Smith must not watch football. The Chiefs are winning, and he’s about 10th on the list as to why, just like he was in San Francisco. And that’s ben done with none of the injury problems on offense that the 49ers are dealing with. When Dwayne Bowe has more than 3 or 4 coatches in a game and Alex Smith carries them to victory, please shelve the “they made a mistake getting rid of Smith” comments like they traded Joe Montanna again.

  24. They weren’t gonna finish 14-2 but seriously how does gore ave 5 yards a carry in a low scoring game and have under 20 carries? These coaches are in love with a passing game that’s hasn’t been there all year. I’ll continue to tel myself that they get paid for this, but common sense tells me they are wrong. Still a lot of football left and this is not who they will be come December.

    Embarrassing game for the 49ers offense, with or without Davis and Crabtree. Horrid . . . and Hawks fans you have one NOTHING yet.

    ___________________________

    And you have YET to learn grammar

  27. That was the absolute worse display of offense I have EVER seen by the Niners and I’ve been a fan for over 40 years! Kap was 99% of the reason. I don’t think I’ve seen a QB go down so easily since Jim Everett back in 1990 and he only did it once! This team is more loaded with talent than any I’ve seen before but it means NOTHING without leadership at the QB position. Kap needs to decide RIGHT NOW if he is in it for the right reasons or if he simply wants to keep sucking up left over accolades from last season. The hard working and high paying fans deserve so much better. And one other thing….Vic Fangio…teach your guys how to understand where the first down marker is!!!!! When it’s 3rd and seven….why the F are you playing 10 yards off of it???? They had the run of the field on nearly EVERY third down! Luckily they missed a lot because of bad passes and dropped balls but yet they still got enough of them to make you look foolish! Get it together Niner organization! Don’t blow this small window of opportunity! (maybe you did already)

  28. I been telling 49er fans for the past two years that they’ve forgot where there team had been the 15yrs prior; at the bottom. But instead of using that as a humbling experience, trash talk every other team that is doing bad as if they are the Patriots. Now they have the right to trash talk because they’ve been pretty much relevent every year since 02. Texan fans are just as bad, they’ve been horrible most of their existence up until recent years.

  29. But I thought now that the 49ers were getting healthy, they were going to be unbeatable? How many drops did Manningham have today? Maybe 9er fans will stop worrying about the Seahawks now and start worrying about the Cardinals who are only 1 game behind them. Uh oh.

  30. Since Week 1, 49er fans have made fun of the Seahawks for barely beating the “freaking Panthers” on the road.

    49ers just lost to them at home.

    This week should be fun.

  31. Our offensive line either absolutely dominates, or they get destroyed…. If we had a middle ground we would’ve won this game and the Indy game…..

  32. Colin (tebow v2) kapernick Is terrible! This game only proved one thing, these are the two most OVERRATED qb’s in this league! jaws credibility is now lost.

  33. frisco fans:

    Didn’t you know when Kaep was sporting Dolphins gear and posing nude that there were going to be problems for you this season? Where, oh where, has Alex Smith gone? Oh my Gaaawwwwddd, I can’t stop laughing at you scrubs!

  34. Let me guess..Whiner fans already using the injury excuse..No Davis, Reid or Crabtree..Right???

    How about No Harvin, No Rice, No Red Bryant, No Oline..yet 9-1

    Back to your day jobs..Cops

  35. Memo to Seahawks fans: The more you take time to search for Niner stories to comment on, stories that do not even involve your team, the more pathetic you look! You lost in ATL in January and the Niners went down there the following week a beat them…the Niners have won and the Seahawks have lost the division the past 2 years…the Niners are 5 of 6 in superbowls whereas the Seahawks are 0 for 1…your star cornerback was seen celebrating after he was beat for a touchdown in the ATL game…many of your victories this year have been razor sharp against what should be massively inferior teams…(rams, texans, buccaneers…)
    Once your team actually wins something more than a victory over a division rival (and i do believe they can) you will understand that your constant fixation with other teams is a pathetic exercise!

    I remember you were saying Seattle can’t win on the road.
    What are you going to say now that the Seattle road record is better than the SF home record?

    ********

    U mad bro? LOLOL

  38. It all boils down to Kaepernick. I don’t think he is a terrible QB, that would be stupid after what he did coming off the bench last season.

    I will, however, stick with my pre-season opinion that Kaepernick does not perform well because he knows that there is no one waiting on the bench to take his job away from him, like he did to Smith last season. He isn’t playing like his job depends on it. He played that way last year and looked good doing it.

    Something is missing in SF this season. They play like it doesn’t matter.

  39. You don’t deserve to win if you can’t score a touchdown. Middle ground or no. Just own up. You got beat. But you do have all those SB trophies.

    One other thing, we “one” more than you did.

  41. Carolinadude7, don’t take it wrong. Your team did an excellent job and I do not mean to take that away from them. I am simply pointing out (and I would think you agree) that Kap was not 100% prepared today. Your team has a stellar pass rush. But Kap went down after his shoestring was brushed on. Hardly the performance expected from a 6’4″ 230+ lb athlete that has shown in the past a sick ability to escape when in trouble.

  42. Uh…paging Mr. Florio…paging Mr. Florio…HOWS THAT PICK on this game looking for you?? How would you like that crow prepared come Wednesday on the Mac Attack??? Who have the Panthers beaten?? THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS!!! THATS WHO!!

  43. Nice game Panthers. We knew you were legit!! 49ers have been dissing you from the start and they wouldn’t listen when Hawk fans told them your front 7 was dominating. It was all about the Hawks sucking according to them…THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR FRONT 7 NOW!!!

    Memo to Seahawks fans: The more you take time to search for Niner stories to comment on

    Time to search? It’s a blog, it doesn’t take any time but then you’re a 49er fan so we should cut you some slack. After all you still live in the Joe Montana era.

  45. Admittedly I’ve not been on this board that long to see what other niner fans post on the Seahawks pages but wow some of you really enjoy this belittling of other fan bases.
    I don’t really get it, that’s a great team up there and it’s exciting to have something resembling a competitive division.
    I remember thinking after Super Bowl loss that teams just don’t get back the next year so although hopeful I know the history of the teams that lose that game is not good. A lot of time left, we will see how it plays out

    Only sensitive one here is you. Sorry. You cry every time the Seahawks are mentioned.

    “Oh wait, they played a good team, the Colts, and lost…..on the road mind you.”

    Oh, on the road, such a burn! They must really suck if they lost to a good team on the road. They also beat the 49ers. Are you conceding that the 49ers are not a good team? They also beat the Panthers who, after today, 49er fans are calling a good team. Oh and the Seahawks beat them on the road, mind you.

  54. Ninerrich I don’t agree, 49ers were coming off a bye week so he had plenty of time to be 100% ready. He also had film with us and the hawks, your guys rivals so he had ALL the advantages. Only this time we didn’t fumble on our 4 yard line to give the game away like we did with the hawks

  55. 46 passing yards is pretty tough to defend. Injures, good Carolina defense, whatever that was pathetic. Hard to argue against harbough as they were so bad before he got there but I was never ok with the way they benched Smith last year and this defense reminds me a lot of 2011 to where they could get by without a nuclear offense as long as they don’t goes it away. This year the fact is they beat one good playoff team in week one where nobody resembles who they will be later.
    We will learn a lot about this team and how they respond next week. I’d like to here more after a loss then ” they didn’t do anything we didn’t expect them to, we just didn’t execute” what does that even mean? I’d like to see them feed Gore, more play action and bunch formations ie trips. Stop with all this multiple shifting bs that takes the clock down to zero. Simplify this offense, they have the talent to do it. And please some moronic team be stupid enough to hire roman away and take Kyle Williams with him. There that’s my Xmas list

  57. I was hoping Florio would type this post after his 610 The Fan interview telling us the Panthers had no chance. He was having fun, but his tone had to change this week!

  58. I just love how this is an article about how the Panthers beat the Niners today, and it’s turned into a battle between Niner and Seahawk fans!

    I’d just like to give the Panthers BIG KUDOS for today’s win at San Fran!!!! Our D is amazing!!!
    Way to go, Panthers! Great game!!!!!
    Keep poundin’ Panther Nation!!!!!!

  59. Can all of the 49er and Seahawk trolls go post on their teams pages? This post is about the Panthers WIN today!!!! Just my opinion…….

  60. For all you Seachicken fans giving us praise, I do appreciate it. But remember two things. 1. you were a dumb fumble from getting beat in week 1. 2. Vengeance is coming, see you in January.

  61. Sorry Panther fans about this thread getting loaded with Seahawk/49er trash talk but they flood our forums to talk trash even when we win.

    I knew it from week one that Carolina defensive front was something to watch out for. Those young DT’s push the pocket and I honestly couldn’t tell you if Johnson or Hardy is a better edge rusher.

    Last year I believed Bobby Wagner (who is legit) was a better MLB and after the game I realized Keuchly is that highest tier at the position much like Earl Thomas at FS. Cam Newton has some balls sail though but you could tell he knows how to win now even if it means punting the ball. Congrats on the big win and being in the hunt for playoffs.

    Oh let’s see… we beat the niners I bet that has to burn doesn’t it?
    Yep.. we lost to Indy, which beat the niners at home. Wanna compare scores? Seahawks lost by 6 at Indy, Niners lost by 20 IN Candlestick!

    “scmems07, long time no see.
    I remember you were saying Seattle can’t win on the road.
    What are you going to say now that the Seattle road record is better than the SF home record?”

    Let me help you out a bit… all the negative posts that you have made about the Seahawks have been proven incorrect.

    The Seattle fans, on the other hand, know our weaknesses and we also realize that the team is coming together in the stretch. Seahawks had some close games against teams which we should have beaten handily. Happily they did manage to come away with the win.

    I look forward to comparing (with you) the results of the Seahawks – Saints to the results of the Niners-Saints just prior to playing the Niners in Candlestick Park.

    Where are all the carolina fans who were crying for the HC to be fired!
    _____
    Right here. I was 1 of them. And I was dead wrong. Rivera was a weak coach for his first 2 years, and the first 4 of this year. But he has adjusted, particularly on 4th down, and he has let his coordinators put together superb game plans (and I hate to say that about the ‘Bama guy that s our OC). Of course, we need to keep it up, but as long as we make the playoffs, I have no problem with Rivera getting a 2- or 3-year extension.

  67. BTW, isn’t it also time to stop using the “I have never heard of you, therefore you suck” philosophy on the Panthers secondary? Even in his “I’m only apologizing because you’re making me” apology to Cam last night, Rodney Harrison praised our front 7 and added, “even though they don’t have a good secondary…” And Stephen A Smith with his, “you can pass on this team” about the Panthers. And we won’t soon forget Florio’s performance last week on Charlotte sports talk radio.

    Memo to national media members: Just because you don’t know who Florence, Munnerlyn, Mikell, Mitchell and Lester are, doesn’t mean they can’t play. Just because they don’t have big names doesn’t mean they can’t make big plays.

    I’m looking forward to watching our offense destroy the banged-up Patriots defense and for these no-name DBs shutting down all of Brady’s receivers and winning game 6 in row.

    Go Panthers! Keep pounding!

    For all you Seachicken fans giving us praise, I do appreciate it. But remember two things. 1. you were a dumb fumble from getting beat in week 1. 2. Vengeance is coming, see you in January.

    Maybe, but if hawks/panthers do meet in January it currently looks like it will be played in Seattle.
    Good feeling for the Hawks to be in control of their own destiny.

  69. Wow, the hate for the 49ers is funny. What came out of yesterdays game is that the fully loaded Panthers beat a severely depleted 49ers team by 1 point and did nothing on offense against that 49ers defense. I believe the 49ers were 11-4-1 last season and were a play from winning the Super Bowl. I don’t think anyone scares that team home or road. Even if they go into the playoffs as the 5th or 6th seed they will destroy the North or East champ in the first round, then go to New Orleans or Seattle, teams that have serious trouble scoring on the Niners defense historically, then possibly a rematch with Carolina in the NFC Title game. The extra game actually helps the Niners this year with all these guys coming back so late, get some more reps. Come January, I would still bet on the 49ers and their loaded roster.

  70. “then go to New Orleans or Seattle, teams that have serious trouble scoring on the Niners defense historically”

    **********************************************

    Ha ha ha ha

    Seattle has only managed 25.6 PPG vs San Fran over the last 3 games but San Fran scored a whopping 9.6 PPG.

    And Saints, even without their coach, averaged 26 PPG the last two times you played.

    Oh wait, I forgot. 49er fans still live in the 1980’s.

  71. 49ers beat those Saints in both games and gave up 17 at New Orleans last year, plus Seattle’s offense has done very little against Niners D, Seattle’s defense has handled Niners offense. Watch the games

  72. Statistically wilson isnt the best in his first 2 years. That would be Cam Newton. More passing yards then anyone in the history of the Nfl in his first 2 seasons. Also broke record for most rushing TDs by a quarterback

  73. Watch the games? Seriously? Seattle has outscored the 49ers 77-29 the past 3 games. In the past 2 games the Seattle offense has put up 62 points on the 9ers. That’s not “very little.” That’s abuse.

  74. Wow, the hate for the 49ers is funny. What came out of yesterdays game is that the fully loaded Panthers beat a severely depleted 49ers team by 1 point and did nothing on offense against that 49ers defense.
    *************
    Severely depleted… after this last week when the 49er fans were talking about getting back Aldon Smith, Mario Manningham…

    So.. first off.. not so “severely” as you would like us to believe.

    Secondly it was a HOME game for SF.

    Thirdly, the 49er trolls kept talking about “dominating” the panthers.

    I could continue, basically what happened is that the team disrespected the Carolina Panthers and paid the price.

    Ron Rivera: Coach of the Year!!!

    —————————————————-

    I don’t know what has happened to Rivera, but many Panthers fans thought he was as good as gone after another awful start and horrible coaching decisions earlier in the year.

    He seems to have finally figured it out. Good for him.
