One day after a convincing victory at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Panthers’ coaches found some areas of concern that they can use as teaching points in the week to come.

Even so, they came away impressed by how much their young team showed it already has learned in the 38-19 triumph.

“We’re starting to get it. We’re starting to understand,” Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Monday. “We’ve had an opportunity as coaches to go over tape, and we feel pretty good about what we did.

“We also feel that we could have done some things better. We had opportunities that we left out on the football field, but we’ll have an opportunity to make those up as we learn and get better as a football team.”

On offense, the Panthers scored their most points in a game since a 41-9 victory over the New York Giants to close the 2009 regular season. On defense, Carolina allowed a season-low 78 rushing yards.

In addition, the Panthers were flagged for just two penalties – also a season low.

“Offensively, defensively and with the exception of the one punt return on special teams, we did some good things,” Rivera said. “We thought we could do some things and make it tough on them, and that’s exactly what happened as far as the defense was concerned. And the big thing was how our offense handled the first two series, going down and putting points on the board and giving us a chance to start fast.”
