Panthers go up 24-10 after Kelvin Benjamin highlight reel

The 49ers ought to be OK this year as long as they shut opponents out.

But when the other team scores, they could struggle.

The Panthers just opened the second half with a nice touchdown drive, going 69 yards in eight plays, with Kelvin Benjamin making a juggling catch on his back and then catching a touchdown pass for a 24-10 lead.

The 49ers aren’t built to play catch-up, with a lack of reliable receiving targets and Blaine Gabbert at quarterback. So a two-touchdown lead could hold up for the Panthers, who have other concerns.

Running back Jonathan Stewart is out for the rest of the game with a hamstring injury, and guard Trai Turner was helped off the field, with trainers looking at his right foot and ankle on the sidelines.

    matter of time till Kap starts again. Gabbert is just there until Kaps healthy enough.

    We’re getting a first hand display of that Great Gabbert.

    Though to be fair, the play calling had some Tomsula-esque qualities. Backed up in our own endzone and we run it three times up the middle?

    Also our D had us in the game early but the offense is getting off the field to fast. They’re getting gassed and now getting burned.

    That Ginn “catch” has me wondering what the definition of “clear control” is.
