Chandler Catanzaro. He was part of a group of kickers they worked out last week after Graham Gano struggled in Detroit. This signing Michael Palardy Jersey , however, is not due to a crisis in the team’s confidence of Gano.Instead, this follows Gano appearing on the injury report this week with a knee injury. Catanzaro, who was released from the Bucs this year following his accuracy struggles, is being described as “an insurance policy” while the Panthers evaluate Gano’s health. Catanzaro is a career 83% field goal kicker but has missed four extra points this season. He is not a guaranteed upgrade over Gano.To make room on their roster, the Panthers have sent 2012 second round pick Amini Silatolu to injured reserve. Silatolu was unable to make an impact this year in spite of the miles of significant injuries and struggles along the Panthers offensive line. His Panthers career is likely over at this point.Panthers 18 Cowboys 6: 3 plays to love, 3 plays to hate from the Panthers’ season opening win Plays to love Cheap Shaq Thompson Jersey , 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 0:45 – Panthers 7, Cowboys 0. Panthers ball 2nd-and-17 at DAL 31The Situation: The Panthers were driving late in the second quarter, looking to add to their lead heading into halftime. The Play: Christian McCaffrey caught a swing pass in the left flat behind the line of scrimmage. Sean Lee came untouched and drew a bead on CMC for what looked like a sure loss on the play. McCaffrey caught the ball and juked Lee, leaving him grasping at air. CMC then motored down the sideline for a 14-yard gain to the Dallas 17 to set up a field goal to go up 10-0 at the half. Without McCaffrey’s elusiveness , the Panthers would have faced 3rd-and-20 from the Dallas 34 and a field goal becomes much more difficult. 4th Quarter 3:19 – Panthers 16, Cowboys 8. Cowboys ball 1st-and-10 at CAR 48The Situation: Dallas had narrowed the Panthers lead to eight points late in the game. The Cowboys up-tempo fourth quarter attack had put Carolina’s defense on its heels. Dallas had crossed midfield looking to tie the game and the Panthers defense needed a big play. The Play: Kawann Short burst through the line and sacked Dak Prescott for an eight yard sack to force 2nd-and-18. The Cowboys could never get out of the hole and punted three plays later. The Dallas offense had tons of momentum before KK’s drive-killing play. 4th Quarter 1:39 – Panthers 16, Cowboys 8. Cowboys ball 3rd-and-7 at DAL 23The Situation: With less than two minutes left, Dallas had one last gasp to score a late touchdown and tie the game with a two-point conversion. The Play: Dak Prescott felt pressure and rolled left. Mario Addison pursued him across the field and strip-sacked Prescott from behind. Captain Munnerlyn recovered the fumble, thus ending the game. Addison never quit and came up with a massively clutch play. Three plays to hate1st Quarter 6:42 – Panthers 0, Cowboys 0. Panthers ball 3rd-and-2 at DAL 5The Situation: The Panthers offense sustained a long drive on their first possession of the season. With the ball at the five yard line, it felt like a touchdown was inevitable. The Play: Christian McCaffrey took a handoff up the middle , got stripped, and lost the fumble. CMC’s turnover took at least three points off the board in a game when the Panthers struggled to score. 4th Quarter 14:16 – Panthers 16, Cowboys 0. Panthers ball, extra point attemptThe Situation: Alex Armah’s touchdown to begin the fourth quarter should have put the Panthers up by three scores at 17-0, but then Amini happened. The Play: Amini Silatolu lined up next to long snapper J.J. Jansen. As Jansen went to snap the ball, Silatolu stuck his foot right in the ball’s path, tipping the snap and botching the extra point. The Panthers now only led by two scores at 16-0.4th Quarter 3:23 – Panthers 16 Cheap Ian Thomas Jersey , Cowboys 8. Cowboys ball 2nd-and-15 at DAL 47The Situation: The Cowboys hurry-up offense was very effective in the fourth quarter as Dallas looked for a game-tying score late in the fourth quarter. The Play: Dak Prescott’s pass on 2nd-and-15 fell incomplete which should have forced a difficult 3rd-and-15 near midfield, but Mike Adams was flagged for an demoralizing illegal contact penalty. The penalty gave Dallas a fresh set of downs at the Carolina 48 as an exhausted Panthers front four tried to catch its breath.Closing it out and summing It upThe Panthers are 1-0 thanks in large part to an absolutely dominant performance by the front seven. Cam was a dual-threat beast with big runs and some perfect throws through tiny windows. The “new guys” on offense had a nice sequence leading to a second quarter field goal with two nice runs by C.J. Anderson for 13 yards, two receptions by Jarius Wright for 18 yards, and a 15-yard grab by Torrey Smith. Wright looks like he might be this year’s Jerricho Cotchery. With continued solid blocking from Taylor Moton, this offense just might click. The concerns are obviously the injuries to Greg Olsen and Daryl Williams. Luke Kuechly even got dinged up at one point. The offensive line was fair but had some minor issues, including plays on the same drive in the fourth quarter when Taylor Moton was flagged for a 15-yard chop block and Amini Silatolu released Demarcus Lawrence for a sack. But, hey Mike Adams Jersey , 1-0 baby!Plays to love season leaders1 - Christian McCaffrey, Kawann Short, Mario AddisonPlays to hate season leaders1 - Amini Silatolu, Christian McCaffrey, Mike Adams
