Stats and Superlatives: DJ Moore ends season in elite company

DJ Moore - stats


  • The Panthers held the Buccaneers to a three-and-out on their opening drive, completing a season-long streak of not allowing a touchdown on an opponents' first possession. The last time a team did that for an entire season was the 2016 Steelers.
  • Carolina finished the season with a plus-52 scoring margin in the first quarter, its highest since stats were made available in 2000.
  • Tampa Bay threw for 324 net yards, the second-most allowed by Carolina this season. The Panthers ended the season allowing just 192.1 pass yards per game, their fewest since 2009.
  • The Panthers went for it on fourth down six times Sunday, but converted just twice. They attempted the second-most fourth downs in the NFL over the last four games (13) but converted only three.
  • Carolina lost the turnover battle 2-0 and ended the season with a minus-13 turnover margin (t-29th).


  • Wide receiver DJ Moore had seven receptions for 87 yards, while adding a 13-yard rush for a 100-yard game. He finished the season with 1,157 receiving yards, his third-straight year with more than 1,100 yards. He joins Buffalo's Stefon Diggs as the only wideouts with at least 1,100 receiving yards in each of the last three seasons.
  • Running back Chuba Hubbard had 48 yards rushing and a six-yard touchdown reception. His six total touchdowns were the third-most by a rookie running back in franchise history.
  • Running back Ameer Abdullah set a career-high with nine receptions for 56 yards. Christian McCaffrey is the only Panthers running back to record more catches in a game.
  • Linebacker Shaq Thompson had six tackles to finish with 104 on the season. He joins Jon Beason, Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly as the only Panthers with three consecutive 100-tackle seasons.
  • Cornerback Myles Hartsfield posted a career-best 12 tackles, including a sack and a tackle for loss.
