  • The Panthers defense had to battle through injuries with new replacements starting the game, and injuries taking place within it. Overall, 19 different players saw snaps on defense, the most of any game this season.
  • Cornerback Kevon Seymour earned his first start as a Panther and just the fourth start of his two-year career, taking over for Daryl Worley who was inactive with a strained pectoral. Seymour was credited with one tackle.
  • Safety Demetrious Cox made his professional debut, earning 38 snaps as he took over for Kurt Coleman who was injured in the first half. Cox was credited with four tackles. Cox himself suffered an injury in the fourth quarter, and Colin Jones played seven snaps in his stead.
  • Linebacker Shaq Thompson played a season-high 69 snaps, just three shy of his career high. He finished with nine tackles, including a tackle for loss. He was crucial in filling for Thomas Davis who played a season-low 37 snaps as he continues to deal with a rib injury.
  • After just 11 snaps last week against New Orleans, cornerback Captain Munnerlyn played 33 snaps against the Patriots defense. He was credited with two tackles.
