Panthers getting gashed in the run game now. Green Bay has 136 yards rushing with 4:25 left in the third. That long drive the Packers had at the end of the first half and getting the ball back to start the second half appears to have taken its toll. That both starting cornerbacks now aren't on the field makes the situation worse.

Wow! What a play by Panthers DT Gerald McCoy to end the half. The Packers had a chance to take an 11-point lead into the half with a first-and-goal run from the 1. McCoy, who extended this drive with a roughing the quarterback penalty in the end zone, blew through the line for a violent collision with the runner and a 3-yard loss that kept Green Bay's lead to 14-10. The Panthers are playing well, but the unit that leads the league with 34 sacks has none. Playing well won't win this.

Packers' go-ahead touchdown was benefited by the Panthers not having starting cornerback James Bradberry. His replacement, Ross Cockrell, never made a play on the ball to Davante Adams on a 37-yard completion that set up the score.

Ron Rivera didn't play it safe on the decision to let Joey Slye kick a 50-yard field goal. He even had a long break between quarters to think about it. Slye rewarded the decision with a successful kick to give the Panthers a 10-7 lead.

The play that set up Green Bay's tying touchdown was why Aaron Rodgers is so great. It was third-and-9 and Rodgers looked like he was about to take a sack. He got out of trouble thanks to good blocking and completed a 19 yard pass.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The Panthers couldn't ask for a much better start from Kyle Allen, who is 5-for-6 passing for a touchdown, a 2-yarder to Curtis Samuel. He got the scoring drive by pulling the ball out of the gut of Christian McCaffrey and hitting DJ Moore for a 38-yard gain. Allen looks calm and is managing the offense almost perfectly.
