Panthers aren’t blinking this week, up 34-7 in third quarter

CHARLOTTE, NC - JANUARY 24:  Cam Newton #1 of the Carolina Panthers celebrates after Ted Ginn Jr. #19 (not pictured) scores a touchdown in the first quarter against the Arizona Cardinals during the NFC Championship Game at Bank of America Stadium on January 24, 2016 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Panthers managed to get through the third quarter without collapsing.

Then again, it’s early yet.

The Panthers are about a quarter away from a date with the Broncos in the Super Bowl, up 34-7 on the Cardinals after an impressive start to the second half.

While they gave up two quick touchdowns out of the break last week against the Seahawks, the Panthers were able to grind away the clock to open the second half this week.

Their first possession took 7:10 off the clock, so even settling for a field goal was not the worst result, considering the time they took away from the Cardinals.

But then Cam Newton started doing Cam Newton things, converting a third-and-10 run and then diving in for a touchdown to punctuate a 12-yard run, which might be enough of a difference.

    This panthers team is damn good. Repeat of super bowl 48 coming soon.

    Happy that Cam is succeeding after working so hard and getting results.

    What makes me even happier is visualizing Greg Hardy sitting on a couch. He finally realizes he blew it, since there are FINALLY actual consequences and lost opportunities for his actions.

    Cam is unreal. That 3rd and 10 run is Cam in a nutshell. He outran the DB and ran over the lineman. Rooting for the Panthers so Cam can silence the haters.

    Have you ever seen Tom Brady or Big Bro Manning do jumping jacks to entice crowd participation — like Cam(eron) Newton? lol

    Something’s wrong with the audio on my TV. A full minute’s gone by without hearing Joe Buck stroke Cam Newton.

  7. randomguy9999 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:21 PM

    Cam is goofing around like the game is over, meanwhile Arizona is putting up 8

    they are 3 tds out from stealing this from the panthers with 14:16 left

    last week, against a lesser team, they did the same thing and gave up 4 TDs in the last 8 minutes

    the Panthers are great, but one of these times they are going to stick their heads in the lion’s mouth one too many times

    Joe Buck needs to make like an ostrich and bury his face in the ground.

  9. Pftsliberalagenda says: Jan 24, 2016 9:29 PM

    Joe Buck wants to break up with Troy and be Cams boo

    Palmer is not a playoff QB. Bengals fans still think they had won if he hadn’t gotten hurt back in 2005. Truth is that Kitna played every bit as good as Palmer would have.

  11. yesser12 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:30 PM

    Forehead’s defense better shut them down. Don’t think I can handle Panthers all off season.

  12. peytonwantsaflag says: Jan 24, 2016 9:31 PM

    Broncos/panthers? My God, what a boring who gives a f**k matchup.

  13. pantherfan1973299 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:32 PM

    Ok so this week it’s carson palmers finger..are we done yet?

    Nope, but I’ve been to Barnum and Bailey

  15. nflgtcfl says: Jan 24, 2016 9:34 PM

    Arizona has 5 TOs by start of 4th? It should be 10 as CAR dropped a bunch they should have had.

    The cards got exposed the last few weeks.

    Carson Palmer throws some beautiful balls and when healthy and playing well he is definitely top tier QB.

    But with his injury history, salary and tendency to disappear on the big stage do the cards consider moving on from him?

  16. wallabear says: Jan 24, 2016 9:40 PM

    Cam, he got on his “goin’ to the Super Bowl” smile. Nice one. What’s up with Cam-rolina owner Jerry Richardson: no smiles from him in his press box?

  17. dejc421 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:42 PM

    Not a Panthers fan but you have to admit they are a lot of fun to watch. I’m afraid the Broncos are going to get blown out.

  18. screamingsheep69 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:42 PM

    Carolina’s easy schedule is coming back to haunt… wait a minute, what?

  19. kitmandew says: Jan 24, 2016 9:42 PM

    That should just about do it…..Now we are the worst team ever to make it to the Super Bowl….. How about a little respect for this team that has only done what no one said they could do game after game….. Will never get it from the clueless Cam haters but that’s ok….just keep pounding

  20. wallabear says: Jan 24, 2016 9:43 PM

    Never liked USC QBs… NOW do you see why? lol

  21. bc1906 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:45 PM

    Here we go, it’s all gonna be about how bad Palmer was and not about how great the Panthers played. Bring on the Broncos in Santa Clara!!!!! #keeppounding

  22. vader3234 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:48 PM

    Vintage Carson Palmer.

  23. r8dernation says: Jan 24, 2016 9:49 PM

    Classic Carson.

  24. leatherface2012 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:50 PM

    HOT GARBAGE>CARSON PALMER

  25. 2coolguysmrtundra says: Jan 24, 2016 9:51 PM

    AZ has too many players on it with Minnesota ties to win big games.

  26. infectorman says: Jan 24, 2016 9:52 PM

    So Cards will be drafting a young QB in April.

    meanwhile, It’ll fun to watch Panthers pummel the fake Donkey team in the SB.,

    Donkeys suck and Manning* is an HG cheat*

    Broncos entire last 2 years is asterisk ridden mess*
    Hope you’re happy Donkey fans. You can NEVER live down your asterisks

    The superbowl is going to be a snoozer. Boring.

  28. bleck5 says: Jan 24, 2016 9:54 PM

    The Panthers are something else. Absolutely incredible team.

    The Broncos dont seem to have a chance.

  29. stampnhawk says: Jan 24, 2016 9:56 PM

    Palmer was lucky to get through the last quarter of last week. Carried over this week with the yips.

    5 mins more for Seattle last week and would be a SB rematch with Denver.

    No horse in the race, but go Broncos, and go Manning. One last ring for us old guys.

  30. whodey83 says: Jan 24, 2016 10:00 PM

    Oh Carson.

  31. whodey83 says: Jan 24, 2016 10:02 PM

    His names Joe Buck, and he’s here to..
