Carolina's offense is starting off very sl-o-o-o-wly against New England's heretofore vulnerable defense.
In its first 3 offensive possessions, Carolina has exactly one first down, courtesy of a 13-yard DeAngelo Williams run. There's been really nothing else positive, unless you count the fact that a badly overthrown ball by Matt Moore wasn't intercepted a Patriot who had the ball hit him right in the hands.
On the plus side, New England got to about the Carolina 40 on its first two drives but netted nothing. On one, the Pats went for it on fourth-and-1 and a running play got stuffed. On the second, Tom Brady underthrew Wes Welker on third down and the Pats punted. The Pats are about to start their third possession.
