A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a blog entitled "Surprising Stat"-- in which I told about the phenomenal Carolina Panthers defense achieving the #1 position in the NFL Stats for lowest number of points allowed. At that time, they were allowing about 18 points per game. Their stat is still around that figure-- but now, the Green Bay Packers have taken over that #1 spot, allowing about 17 points per game.

It is only natural that a team in our position (undefeated at 6--0) would be tempted to look ahead to a huge game like the Packers next week, but I don't think that Coach Ron Rivera and the Panthers team will do that. They've been emphasizing the "one game at a time" approach ever since he came to Charlotte. And I believe that he and the other coaches and veteran players on this team will "keep pounding" that message into everyone's heads.
