Carolina still leads 7-0 midway through the second quarter, and New England's offense has drawn boos each of the last three times it left the field.
Carolina's defense has held the Panthers in the game so far, causing two turnovers already (an interception by Chris Gamble of Tom Brady and a fumble caused by Chris Harris with a big hit on Randy Moss).
The Panthers offense has four punts and one lightning-strike TD in five possessions, which normally wouldn't be enough against the Pats. But the defense is playing so well right now that Brady can't get anything going. Even New England's last possession, which started at Carolina's 41 after a poor Jason Baker punt, ended with three plays, no yards, a punt and a lot of boos.
