And that should do it. The Carolina Panthers have scored on a Brandon LaFell touchdown to put them up 30-13 in the fourth quarter, likely ending the chances for the Redskins.
The Redskins defense have been outmatched the entire second half by the Panthers, with Cam Newton and Steve Smith teaming up time and again. Smith has 7 receptions for 143 yards and Newton is 18 for 23 for 256 and a touchdown.
While most expected the Redskins offense to struggle, it has been their defense that was disappointed. As soon as the offense began heating up, the defense yielded scores.
The Redskins defense have allowed an opposing offense 30 points for the first time this season.
