Gone to Carolina

The Patriots winning streak is over, and they might have a losing streak after tomorrow's game against the Rams, but things could be (and get) much worse. Just look at the Panthers, now 1-6 after a slew of injuries not unlike what the Patriots are facing now. When you lose key members of your secondary, running game, and receiver corps, you're in trouble. Carolina has scored exactly 100 points in 7 games (only Washington with 98 and Miami with 86 are worse) and have given up an average of 152.6 yards per game on the ground, second-worst in the league (Cincinnati 155.4). I wonder if 60 Minutes will profile John Fox (or Bill Belichick) after this season and try to paint them as geniuses. It still comes down to having good and healthly players, or you can't win.
