Carolina Panthers leading sack artist Mario Addison will miss this week following a personal tragedy in his life.

Football is a fascinating sport that seems to consume people for days at a time (if not months), but even then things like this are quick to remind you that it is just a game and whether you like it or not the athletes have a life off the field.

Since it needs to be talked about, let’s look at the difference on the field with Addison out.

As the team’s leader in TFLs and sacks, there isn’t exactly a great way to replace what Addison has given the Panthers this year. However, they are lucky enough to have several guys who can step into the mix and play a bigger role, including Brian Burns.

News you need to kick off this Carolina Panthers Week 9 game day.
Carolina Panthers (4-3) quarterback Cam Newton recently received a second opinion on his foot injury and remains sidelined from game action. As the season progresses, hopes for any type of return diminish with each passing week – especially since Newton has yet to even practice.

In his absence, backup Kyle Allen has performed admirably. Winning four in a row before running into a talented and undefeated San Francisco 49ers team last week, this game presents the perfect opportunity for Carolina to rebound and remain in contention.

Both teams are seemingly in search of an identity as Tennessee has already replaced their starting quarterback and the Panthers face a decision about not only the immediate needs for this year but who will be responsible for leading the offense into the future.

With Ryan Tannehill at quarterback, the Tennessee Titans may be able to upset the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte on Sunday afternoon.
It’s a game that many outside of the Southeast are not going to care a ton about, but there is serious upset potential when the Tennessee Titans come to Charlotte to take on the Carolina Panthers this weekend. Tennessee has played better with Ryan Tannehill as its starting quarterback and he could be the reason the Titans get it done on Sunday afternoon.

Andy Holloway of The Fantasy Footballers has been impressed with the job of Tannehill in that he’s not Marcus Mariota and can put together consecutive games of consistent football. Factor in that Panthers starting quarterback Kyle Allen struggled last week versus the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee is primed to upset Carolina in Charlotte.

The Carolina Panthers may be 3.5-point favorites to defeat the Tennessee Titans at home on Sunday, but the visitors are all too able to perform the upset. Coming off the heels of two wins, the Titans are rolling. They should continue to do so for these four reasons.

The Carolina Panthers may be 3.5-point favorites to defeat the Tennessee Titans at home on Sunday, but the visitors are all too able to perform the upset. Coming off the heels of two wins, the Titans are rolling. They should continue to do so for these four reasons.

The Panthers host the Titans on Sunday as Carolina looks to get back on track. Here are five things to watch in the Week 9 matchup.

How will the Panthers respond?

We all know what happened last year. After rolling to a 6-2 start, the Panthers suffered a devastating 52-21 Week 10 loss in Pittsburgh that began a seven-game losing skid.

Now, the Panthers are in a similar and equally critical position. After starting the season 4-2 and experiencing a comparably humbling loss to San Francisco last Sunday, this week’s matchup with the Titans will be a huge indicator of how the remainder of the 2019 season will play out.

“I think the biggest thing more so than anything else is there’s going to be comparisons to what happened last year and what potentially could happen this year. The key word there is potential,” head coach Ron Rivera said. “I believe with some of the leadership we have and after having experienced it, I think the guys understand what it’s going to take.”

The AFC has taken it on the chin thus far in inter-conference play in 2019. That’s good news for the Tennessee Titans.

Eight weeks into the season there are just six AFC teams that have winning records overall. Coincidentally, that is the same number of teams that ultimately will make the playoffs.

The Titans can join that group if they win Sunday against the Carolina Panthers (4-3) at Bank of America Stadium. Tennessee comes into the contest at 4-4 with half of their victories against teams from the NFC (Atlanta, Tampa Bay).

Wins over the other conference don’t help much when it comes to tiebreakers but this season, they have given the Titans a leg up over much of the rest of the AFC, which is just 13-23 against the AFC entering this weekend. Only two other AFC teams are currently 2-0 in inter-conference play and those two (New England and Baltimore) are among the six with winning records overall.
