Well, this is certainly a classic.
The defense continues to play well, but they can't stop all the short fields, so the Panthers trail 7-2 at the break to a Buffalo team with 39 yards of total offense.

K John Kasay's missed a pair of field goals. Combined with the no-chance block in Tampa last week, it's the first time he's missed three in a row since 2005 (when he actually missed four straight over a three-game span in October).
QB Jake Delhomme actually cobbled together something resembling a two-minute drive to end the half, but when Kasay's 39-yarder started left and stayed there, it wasted the closest thing to positive feedback the passing game's generated.
