The Panthers still haven’t found the end zone on Sunday, but they have found their way into the lead.

Zane Gonzalez‘s fourth field goal of the game capped a 16-play, 78-yard drive and moved the Panthers ahead of the Falcons 12-10 with over three minutes to play in the third quarter.

The biggest plays of the drive came when quarterback Sam Darnold took off around the left side for a 20-yard gain on a third down and when he hit DJ Moore for an 11-yard gain on another one. The biggest hit came when Falcons safety Erik Harris lit up Panthers wide receiver Robby Anderson with a legal hit to break up a pass.

Anderson was attended to on the field, but returned to the game before the drive was over.
