At kickoff of the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Carolina Panthers game, we were expecting one of the best Thursday Night Football matchups of the year. Five minutes into the game, that still seemed like it was going to be true. But pretty quickly after that, the game turned into a Steelers blowout that ended in a 52-21 beatdown of the Panthers that wasn’t even that close. As Cam Newton said after the game, “We just got whooped.” The Steelers won their fifth game in a row and the Panthers are now 0-4 all-time at Heinz Field. Here’s a by-the-numbers look at how the Steelers (6-2-1) dominated the Panthers (6-3). 9: The Panthers’ opening drive was an impressive nine-play, 75-yard touchdown drive that started them off with a 7-0 lead. That lead would hold for seven seconds and would be the only time the Panthers had the lead all night. 75: It took a single play for the Steelers to answer Newton’s 20-yard touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey as Ben … [Read more...] about 12 stats that show how the Steelers kicked the Panthers’ butts

Everything you need to know as Pittsburgh hosts Carolina by Jared Dubin @jadubin5 35s ago • 7 min read This week's edition of 'Thursday Night Football' should be a damn good one. The 5-2-1 Pittsburgh Steelers are rolling and once again look like one of the best teams in the AFC, and on Thursday night they play host to the 6-2 Carolina Panthers, who look like one of the best teams in the NFC.

Luckily for football fans, we'll get to see a ton of stars on both sides of the ball do battle, in particular some of the best quarterbacks (Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton), running backs (James Conner, Christian McCaffrey), and wide … [Read more...] about Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Carolina Panthers: Prediction, preview, statistics to know for ‘Thursday Night Football’

The Hall of Fame-bound former quarterback may well get that chance, according to a report Wednesday. A leading bidder for the Carolina Panthers has reached out to Manning about joining his ownership group, per the Charlotte Observer. The newspaper reported that Manning was “still considering” the offer. The group is led by Ben Navarro, a 54-year-old billionaire based in Charleston, South Carolina, who heads an investment services company.
