Despite pass push, Panthers' secondary struggling
October 4, 2012
By The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Panthers believe they've found a pass rush. Now they just need to shore up their secondary.
Despite Carolina's 12 sacks on the season - including a franchise-record seven against Atlanta last Sunday - the defensive backfield remains an issue.
The Panthers are giving up 259 yards passing a game. And they allowed Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan to throw for 369 yards and three touchdowns in a heartbreaking 30-28 loss, including a 59-yard completion to Roddy White to set up the game-winning field goal.
They may get just the break they need Sunday when they host not-so-pass-happy Seattle.
Led by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, the Seahawks rank last in the league in passing, averaging just 130.8 yards per game.
