|Giovanni Ricci||3 (4%)||15 (68%)|

- The Panthers clearly came into this game with the intent to run and to run differently. Not only did Chuba Hubbard flip the play-time percentages with Miles Sanders for the first time this season (though Sanders was limited with a groin injury last week), but Laviska Shenault Jr. lined up as a traditional runner early. Hubbard was the most effective of the lot, with 41 yards on 14 carries.
- The other way you could tell they were doing business differently was Tommy Tremble's usage. He played a season-high 31 snaps, and there were times they used a three-tight end package to help mix it up.
- The Panthers started the same line combination from the previous week for the first time this season. Calvin Throckmorton came out for a couple of snaps late, but otherwise, that group was intact.
|Player||Defensive snaps||Special teams snaps|
|CJ Henderson||48 (100%)||4 (18%)|
|Frankie Luvu||48 (100%)|
|Vonn Bell||48 (100%)|

|Brian Burns||43 (90%)||3 (14%)|
|Derrick Brown||38 (79%)||4 (18%)|
|D'Shawn Jamison||34 (71%)||7 (32%)|
|Yetur Gross-Matos||33 (69%)||3 (14%)|
|Shy Tuttle||31 (65%)||4 (18%)|
|Jeremy Chinn||31 (65%)||4 (18%)|
|DeShawn Williams||24 (50%)||1 (5%)|
|Justin Houston||18 (38%)||1 (5%)|
|Nick Thurman||17 (35%)||3 (14%)|
|Kamu Grugier-Hill||14 (29%)||9 (41%)|
|Troy Hill||14 (29%)||3 (14%)|
|Donte Jackson||13 (27%)|
|Chandler Wooten||11 (23%)||18 (82%)|
|LaBryan Ray||8 (17%)|
|DJ Johnson||6 (12%)||7 (32%)|
|Amare Barno||2 (4%)||15 (68%)|
- The Panthers went into this one with a different plan, thinking the Vikings would spread them out. Linebacker Frankie Luvu played every snap, and often, he was the only linebacker on the field. Kamu Grugier-Hill played just 14 snaps; otherwise, they mixed up coverages with Jeremy Chinn in the box.
- D'Shawn Jamison played a season-high 34 snaps, more than any corner other than CJ Henderson (all 48 of them). Part of that was because of Donte Jackson's shoulder injury, and partly, he's becoming a more trusted agent for them. Jamison also had a key block on the interception return touchdown, flattening Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.
- Third-round pick DJ Johnson was active for the first time and got six snaps on defense and seven on special teams.
|Player||Special teams snaps|
|Claudin Cherelus||15 (68%)|
|Matthias Farley||15 (68%)|
|Jammie Robinson||15 (68%)|
|Dicaprio Bootle||14 (64%)|
|Johnny Hekker||8 (36%)|
|JJ Jansen||8 (36%)|
|Eddy Piñeiro||6 (27%)|
|Nash Jensen||3 (14%)|
|Ricky Lee||3 (14%)|
- Practice squad call-ups Matthias Farley (68 percent) and Dicaprio Bootle (64 percent) were busy Sunday, playing central roles in special teams with a couple of their regulars playing more of a part on defense.
- Sam Franklin Jr. must have been sad, getting just four special teams snaps. It's who he is. Of course, he started at safety and broke a franchise record with a 99-yard interception return for a touchdown, so that helped.
