Stats and Superlatives: Mike Davis has second multi-TD game of his career

  • The Panthers held an overall edge in net yards (370-365), third-down conversions (43 percent to 38 percent) and time of possession (30:28-29:32).
  • But Denver scored three touchdowns on plays of 35-plus yards, the most any team has scored on Carolina this season.
  • The Broncos returned a punt 83 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. They also had a punt return TD in their last game played at Bank of America Stadium in 2012 when Trindon Holliday went 76 yards. Denver's four punt return TDs all-time are the most by an opponent against Carolina.
  • The Broncos had four passing touchdowns, their most in a game since Week 2 of 2017.
  • The Panthers recovered a fumble for a league-high 13th time this season. That extended their streak of forcing a turnover to 12 straight games, their longest since 2015.
  • However, the Panthers did not have an interception against an offense that had thrown a league-high 21 interceptions. The Panthers are tied for 29th with just five interceptions this season.
  • Against the NFL's second-best red-zone defense, the Panthers were 3-of-5 inside the 20. Denver was 2-of-2 inside its red zone.
  • Carolina lost by 5 points, their ninth game this season decided by eight points or fewer. Carolina is 2-7 in those games.

PLAYER STATS

Panthers

  • Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had 283 yards on 30-of-40 passing. He also rushed for 31 yards and a touchdown. Bridgewater now has 239 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns in 2020, both career highs.
  • Running back Mike Davis scored two rushing touchdowns, marking just the second time in his career (2018, Week 4) that he's scored multiple touchdowns in a game. Davis finished with 93 scrimmage yards (51 rushing, 42 receiving) on 16 touches.
  • Wide receiver Robbie Anderson had a game-high 84 yards on eight catches. He surpassed his previous season-high of 941 receiving yards (2017) and now has 996 yards on the season, ranking ninth in the NFL.
  • Wide receiver Pharoh Cooper had a career-high 52 yards on three receptions, including a 32-yard catch and run that was Carolina's longest play of the game.
  • Linebacker Jeremy Chinn had his first career sack and forced a fumble. He also had a team-high eight tackles, including one for loss. Chinn is the only player in the NFL with multiple defensive touchdowns and at least one sack, tackle for loss, forced fumble, fumble recovery and interception this season. Captain Munnerlyn is the only other player with that stat line in a season in Panthers' history (2013).
  • Defensive tackle/end Efe Obada picked up his second fumble recovery of the season and returned it 54 yards. It was the fifth-longest fumble recovery return in Panthers' history.

Broncos

  • Drew Lock threw a career-high four touchdown passes with no interceptions, the first time a Denver quarterback has done that since Trevor Siemian in Week 3 of 2016. Lock is also the youngest Broncos quarterback with that stat line since Don Breaux in 1963 (per Pro Football Reference).
