The Cardinals started the comeback sooner than the Panthers are used to allowing it.
And they might be without a key piece of the defense which looked so stout early on.
Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis left the field with trainers holding his right arm, after a hit on Cardinals tight end Darren Fells. They’ve announced his return as questionable.
It’s hardly a coincidence the Cardinals responded with a touchdown drive, with David Johnson plowing in from 1 yard out to cut the Carolina lead to 17-7.
The Cardinals began moving the ball well on the ground, after missing a few chances deep early on. The Panthers are bringing pressure, and being without Davis complicates every facet of their plan.
