Carolina continues to lead by a baseball score -- 5-0 -- over Jacksonville with 14:12 left in the second quarter.
The Panthers outgained Jacksonville 88 to minus-1 in the first quarter but don't have a whole lot to show for it so far -- a safety due to the Greg Hardy sack and a 35-yard field goal by Olindo Mare.
Cam Newton has been off target so far for a number of his passes, going 5 for his first 12 for 43 yards. The Panther defense has been dominant early, with both Hardy and Charles Johnson getting early sacks on rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert.
