CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- We mentioned earlier about how Carolina's offensive line dominated Tampa Bay's defense. But now, thanks to ESPN Stats & Analysis, we've got even more detail.
Running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart each averaged over 6 yards per carry between the tackles, and they were even better when they ran outside to the right side.
When they ran in the middle, Williams had 83 yards on 13 carries and Stewart gained 76 yards on 11 carries. That's a 6.4 average for Williams and 6.9 for Stewart. Stewart also scored a touchdown on a run to the middle.
When the Panthers ran to the right side behind rookie tackle Jeff Otah and free-agent pick-up Keydrick Vincent, the numbers got even better. Williams ran four times to the right for 82 yards (a 21.0 average) and Stewart ran that way twice for 32 yards (a 16.0 average). Williams and Stewart each had a touchdown running to the right.
