Panthers up 7-3 early in 2nd...

Green Bay finally got something going on its fourth drive, moving to Carolina's 14 before getting stopped. The Packers' Mason Crosby hit a 32-yard field goal, and Carolina's early lead has been cut to 7-3.

A couple of early notes:

** Jake Delhomme has not been impressive so far. The early underthrow on the flea flicker robbed the Panthers of a possible TD. And he's also had an overthrow and took a sack on the last Panther drive when he almost seemed to be anticipating the sack before it ever came.

** DeAngelo Williams has been very good so far and looks well on his way to a fifth straight game with 100 yards and a TD. He should get the ball a ton the rest of this one, although we haven't seen Jonathan Stewart yet at all.

** Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers started very poorly, but made some good throws on the last Panther drive and may be heating up.

** Carolina returner Mark Jones has been very good early, as has punter Jason Baker. The Panthers have really been winning the field-position game due to those 2.
