We're underway -- 0-0 after 1st quarter

The Panthers and Titans have both gotten off to slow offensive starts -- with the first quarter complete, it's 0-0.

The Panthers' highlight: Everette Brown wrecked Tennessee's first series with a third-down sack in which he also caused a Vince Young fumble. Tennessee recovered however.

The Panthers' lowlight: Matt Moore had a shot at hitting Dwayne Jarrett for a touchdown from the Tennessee 42 but overthrew him on a deep pattern.

Carolina has kept Tennessee star rusher Chris Johnson in check so far. The Panthers are blitzing a lot and obviously bothering Tennessee starting QB Vince Young.

On the Panthers' two drives, they had a nine-play march that stalled at Tennessee's 42 and then a three-and-out. Best special teams play so far: Jason Baker blasted a 76-yard punt to pin Tennessee back inside the 20.

The running lanes are not there because we're doing zip in passing. We don't need to "game plan" this game. Just come out throwing and get it going.
