  • These key plays swung momentum and decided the Panthers 23-17 road loss against Washington Graham Gano Jersey , putting Carolina’s record at 3-2.Plays to Love, Plays to Hate (aka “P2L, P2H”) looks at the most significant plays in swinging momentum and impacting the eventual outcome of the game. There is always plenty to hate about NFL officiating, so we will only focus on the plays on the field, not the refs.Three plays to love2nd Quarter 3:11 – Panthers 0, Washington 17. Panthers ball 2nd-and-10 at WAS 23 The Situation: After a putrid start to the game, the Panthers were just outside the red zone and in desperate need of points.The Play: Devin Funchess just went up and over Quinton Dunbar in the end zone for a beast of a touchdown. The score cut Washington’s lead to 17-6, but then Graham Gano shanked the extra point because everything sucked about this game. 2nd Quarter 0:56 – Panthers 6, Washington 17. Washington ball 1st-and-10 at CAR 33 The Situation: The Panthers were forced to punt from their own end zone with about a minute left in the first half. Washington returned the punt to the Carolina 33 and were in perfect position to add at least a field goal to their 17-6 lead before the end of the first half. The Play: Alex Smith dropped to pass and Kyle Love broke through the line. Love forced Smith to into an intentional grounding penalty to avoid a sack. The penalty pushed the ball back 10 yards to the Carolina 43 and also resulted in a 10 second runoff down to just 37 seconds remaining in the half. Thanks to Love’s pressure, Washington’s drive stalled and they were forced to punt instead of attempting a long field goal. 4th Quarter 8:36 – Panthers 9, Washington 20. Panthers ball 1st-and-Goal at WAS 3 The Situation: Call this the Torrey Smith Drive. After being frustratingly unproductive all season, Torrey Smith went nuts on this crucial fourth quarter drive. The Play(s): Smith had receptions of 12, 11, and 8 yards before scoring a 3-yard touchdown. He then caught the 2-point conversion to trim Washington’s lead to 20-17.Three plays to hate1st Quarter 10:41 – Panthers 0, Washington 0. Washington PuntThe Situation: The Panthers defense forced Washington into a three-and-out on their first possession. D.J. Moore prepared to return the punt. The Play: Moore fielded the punt but got stripped as he ran with the ball away from his body. Washington recovered the fumble at the Carolina 22 and scored a touchdown on their next play from scrimmage to take a 7-0 lead.2nd Quarter 11:32 – Panthers 0, Washington 14. Panthers ball 1st-and-10 at CAR 46 The Situation: The Panthers were trailing 14-0 and finally had a good offensive play on a 22-yard reception to Devin Funchess to get near midfield.The Play: D.J. Moore caught a 17-yard pass to the Washington 33 but had the ball punched out of his arms by Josh Norman. Washington recovered the fumble and turned their next drive into a field goal for a 17-0 second quarter lead. 4th Quarter 13:49 – Panthers 9 Ryan Kalil Color Rush Jersey , Washington 17. Washington ball 3rd-and-12 at CAR 45 The Situation: The Panthers had reeled off nine straight points to pull to within one score (eight points) early in the fourth quarter. Washington faced a long third down just outside of field goal range.The Play: Dontari Poe pulled a boneheaded play by jumping offside and gifting Washington a 3rd-and-5 at the Carolina 40. On the next play Julius Peppers strip-sacked Alex Smith but Washington recovered the fumble and actually gained two yards to the Carolina 38. Because of Poe’s penalty, Washington’s kicker Dustin Hopkins had just enough room to nail a career-long 56-yard field goal to increase their lead to 20-9. The Panthers could never get over the hump.Closing it out and summing it upThis was a bad, bad loss and plenty has already been written here at CSR and elsewhere to document the inept coaching decisions and terrible on-field execution. But let’s be real here - D.J. Moore almost single-handedly lost this game. His inability to successfully pin the Panthers first punt inside the five followed by his two first half fumbles (yielding 10 points for Washington) absolutely wrecked this game.Dontari Poe is still invisible. Eric Reid has disappointed and got absolutely embarrassed by Alex Smith’s shoulder fake on Vernon Davis’ 22-yard touchdown. Luke Kuechly seems a step slow this year. Special teams was atrocious with the missed extra point, D.J. Moore’s fumble, three return penalties, and a bizarre squib kick to start the second half that was fielded at the 25 and returned to the 31. And, no, I’m not including Ron Rivera’s decision to punt on 4th-and-1 on the Panthers first drive as a “Play to Hate.” Was it conservative? Yes. Should the Panthers have gone for it? Again, yes. But even then this play didn’t cost the Panthers the game. It was a combined effort of ineptitude that included the entire coaching staff, D.J. Moore, Dontari Poe, Eric Reid, shoddy run blocking, and a defense that couldn’t get off the field. Ron Rivera’s decision to try to pin Washington on a first quarter punt (which D.J. Moore screwed up by running into the end zone) didn’t lose this game. These are the types of losses that can keep “good-but-not-elite” teams like the Panthers out of the playoffs. Let’s hope that isn’t the case. Plays to love season leaders2 - D.J.

Their inactives are headlined by Torrey Smith (concussion) and Amini Silatolu, a healthy scratch. That Silatolu is inactive and healthy is a great statement for a team whose biggest concern entering the season was the injuries along their offensive line.Meanwhile, the Steelers are missing their starting right tackle, Marcus Gilbert, for the third consecutive game. Matt Feiler has done a fine job starting in Gilbert’s place, but he faces an all new kind of test against Julius Peppers tonight.Panthers inactivesG Brendan Mahon CB Josh Hawkins DE Marquis Haynes G Amini Silatolu RB Cameron Artis-Payne LB Andre Smith WR Torrey SmithSteelers inactivesQB Mason RudolphWR Justin HunterS Marcus AllenCB Brian Allen OT Zach Banner OT Marcus GilbertDT Dan McCullers
