Rookie quarterback Bryce Young has an opportunity to build off an efficient performance in the Panthers’ first win last week – especially against a Colts secondary depleted by injuries and giving up points.
Indianapolis brings the NFL’s worst scoring defense to Charlotte this weekend, allowing opponents 28.6 points per game. The defense also struggles against the pass, ranking 25th in passing net yards per game (247.3).
Even though he’s coming off the highs of a win, Young emphasized how head coach Frank Reich has guided the team through keeping the same mentality.
“That’s something we’ve talked about every week; we’re talking about making sure we’re the same on Mondays, good or bad, with the results,” Young said. “Whenever we’re watching the film back, it’s about corrections and seeing what we can do better, then seeing three things that we do well and how we can build off of it.
“I’m just finding ways to get better. Coach Reich talks about it all the time, just being obsessed with getting better. And, of course, you’d always like to do that after a win. But as far as the process , what we do, it looks the same.”
