Who told these two teams they had defenses?
It's 0-0 at the end of the first quarter. Neither side's playing what you'd call salty defense, but they're getting stops at the right time.
For the Panthers, that's a benefit, since they've been getting no stops at all.
The rush lanes are still there for the Cowboys, but the Panthers are mixing things up a bit. They've got two sacks so far, both by linebackers (Thomas Davis and a blitzing Jon Beason).
