Fast starts have propelled surprising Panthers to 2-0 record

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Panthers are using fast starts to start fast this season.

The Panthers have been dominant in the first half of games, outscoring their opponents 33-0 and outgaining them by a whopping 400 yards. The Panthers led New Orleans 17-0 at halftime on Sunday after outgaining the Saints 275-65 in the opening half. It was a similar story in Week 1, with the Panthers jumping out to a 16-0 lead on the New York Jets after outgaining them 272-82.

Those fast starts have allowed the Panthers to manage the game and new quarterback Sam Darnold to enjoy the comfort of playing with a lead.
