Tempers were flaring today at Bank of America Stadium. The Panthers and the Rams were both flagged for multiple personal fouls and St Louis’ defensive end, Chris Long was ejected from the game in the 3rd quarter. Even though the Rams tried to unravel the Panthers, they were able to keep their composure and win the game 30-15.
In the opening drive Carolina’s cornerback, Captain Munnerlyn, intercepted a pass and ran it back 45 yards for a touchdown. The first half of the game was mostly defense. Panthers’ Mike Tolbert was tackled in the end zone by Eugene Sims for a safety. Both teams were held to a field goal each and Tolbert was finally able to run in for a TD with 1:05 left in the 2nd quarter.
