Just got some fun stuff from ESPN Stats & Information on what the Panthers did in Sunday’s win over Tampa Bay.

Both Jonathan Stewart (110 yards) and DeAngelo Williams (152) topped 100 rushing yards as the Panthers ran 48 times, the second most in franchise history. Williams’ 30 carries were a career high.

Since the start of last season, Williams leads the NFL with eight games in which he’s rushed for at least 100 yards and scored a rushing touchdown. Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson and Atlanta’s Michael Turner each have done it seven times and the Jets’ Thomas Jones has done it five times.

It’s the third time Williams and Stewart have rushed for at least 100 yards in the same game. The last pair of teammates to do that was Pittsburgh’s Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier. They did it three times in a span of five weeks in 1976.
