Detroit Lions vs. Carolina Panthers: Full Report-Card Grades for Carolina

The Carolina Panthers (2-0) defeated the Detroit Lions (1-1) 24-7 in a close contest early on that saw the Carolina defense dominate the latter part of the game and allow the Panthers to come away with another win. There were a few questionable calls on both sides with a couple of them not being challenged. Regardless, the Panthers picked up their second win of the year.

Cam Newton made his debut after being sidelined an extra week to recover from his rib injury. His performance was decent, but some things were a bit concerning (more on that on the next slide). Injuries have struck the running game, as DeAngelo Williams was sidelined and both Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker were hurt during the game.

Fortunately, the defense was solid, and Carolina made big plays when it mattered most.

The following slides will break down the Carolina Panthers' performance on Sunday along with grades for each position.
