By The Numbers: Panthers

By Mark Solway | October 12th, 2009

Here’s a look at some of the interesting and often painful numbers and statistics from the Redskins 20-17 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday:

198 – Total yards of offense for the Redskins. Ugh. Coming into the game, Carolina was allowing almost that on the ground ever game.

145 – Yards passing for Jason Campbell; he was 17 of 23.

74 – Yards total rushing for the Skins.

66 – Percent in red zone efficiency – starting on the Panthers’ 1 and on the 12 definitely made the statistic virtually pointless.

65 – Yards receiving for Steve Smith on 5 catches; DeAngelo Hall actually did a very decent job of keeping Smith in check.

57 – Yards rushing for Clinton Portis on 19 carries. Mike Sellers wasn’t the only one not blocking.

35.6 – Yards per punt for Glenn Pakulak; he wasn’t much better than Shaun Suisham was last week, and Suisham hadn’t punted since high school.

9 – Yards was the longest run for QB Jake Delhomme – it’s significant because the run salted the game away for Carolina.

7 – Fumbles in the game – while only two of them were lost (1 for each team), did Mazola sponsor the game?

2.5 – Sacks from Andre Carter, who also had six tackles (5 solo, 1 assist).

1 – Safety for the Panthers; they really weren’t even competing until that point – it was a big momentum shift.

0 – Catches for Chris Cooley – his ‘consecutive games with a catch’ streak ends at 75 – what a shame. Having CC take on the responsibility of blocking in the wake of a Chris Samuels’ injury, just doesn’t seem like a very effective use of personnel.

It’s the winless Kansas City Chiefs up next for the Redskins. The Chiefs will be out for blood after blowing a lead and losing to the Cowboys on Sunday.
