- Were limited to 87 rushing yards, their fewest since they gained 80 against the Eagles in Week 6.
- Allowed more than 300 passing yards for the second straight week. The Panthers gave up 300 passing yards only once (Atlanta, Week 9) in their first 14 games.

- RB Christian McCaffrey had a team-high 11 touches. He finished the season with 197 offensive touches, the most ever for a Panthers' rookie.

- K Graham Gano finished the year with a league-best field goal percentage of 96.7, making 29 of his 30 attempts. That percentage also broke Carolina's single-season franchise record of 92.9, set by Joe Nedney in 2000.
