Some significant statistics for the 1-5 Panthers:
4 -- Cam Newton is fourth in the NFL with 1847 passing yards. In all of 2010, Jimmy Clausen had 1558 passing yards.
9 -- Cam Newton's interception total. He is tied for the league lead with Washington's Rex Grossman, so the two could face off Sunday in Charlotte (although Grossman may have lost his job to John Beck with a four-interception game against Philadelphia).
14 -- Steve Smith's receptions of 20 or more yards this season. That ranks first in the NFL in that category; he is second in total reception yardage (675) to New England's Wes Welker (785).
27.2 -- A major problem. That's the number of points the Panthers are giving up per game. Only three NFL teams are worse -- John Fox's Denver Broncos being one of them.
78.3 -- Newton's overall quarterback rating, which was dragged down significantly with Sunday's three-interception performance against Atlanta. It ranks him No.25 in the NFL.
395 -- Number of yards the Panthers have been penalized this season, which is third-worst in the league behind Oakland and Tampa Bay.
418.2 -- Panthers' average offensive yards per game, fifth in the NFL. They've moved the ball with authority between the 20s but continue to have some red-zone problems.
