Ron Rivera remembers other perfect start

The Panthers coach played for the 1985 Bears, who started 12-0 before losing the night before filming the iconic "Super Bowl Shuffle" video. So Rivera is focusing his 11-0 team's attention on the next opponent. 12-0 again?

The 45 yards rushing the Panthers have allowed in the past two games combined is the fourth-best mark of any NFL team in the last 10 years, according to Elias. The two-game total is the best in franchise history.

Panthers cornerback Josh Norman and linebacker Thomas Davis will join ESPNs Sunday NFL Countdown show at 11 a.m. as guest analysts. Norman and Davis will appear alongside host Chris Berman and analysts Cris Carter, Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson and Keyshawn Johnson to preview NFL week 12 games. Perhaps Norman will ask Carter about his prediction of no more than seven wins after Kelvin Benjamin was lost for the season in training camp.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera hasn't started formulating a plan for late in the season as far as resting players. His focus is on winning now even though Carolina possibly could wrap up a playoff berth in Sunday of several scenarios occur.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera when asked if he would like a test down the stretch when talking about the value of perhaps losing a game as his '85 Bears did versus going undefeated: "No. No."

Stats & Info

All Cam Newton does is win

Newton is no stranger to win streaks. He rattled off 14 straight victories en route to a national championship and Heisman Trophy with Auburn in 2010. The QB is once again on a roll, winning 14 straight, this time with the Carolina Panthers.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says the next possibility is 12-0 when asked about the possibility of going 16-0. And you are surprised why?

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says DE Mario Addison and DT Star Lotulelei have sprained ankles. Status for next week at New Orleans uncertain. Not the same foot that kept Lotulelei out at the start of the season.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers DT Dwan Edwards says it's going to take "us not to play well for somebody to beat us." So there is a belief in the locker room that 16-0 is attainable, but the one-game-at-a-time mentality remains.

Carolina defense put in dominant effort

The Panthers defense completely shut down the Cowboys and knocked out Tony Romo in the process. They had three interceptions, including two pick-sixes, and allowed just 14 points, good for 23 fantasy points. Thanksgiving Day fantasy winners/losers

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

In case you were wondering how the snaps were divided for the Panthers at DE with Charles Johnson returning to the starting lineup: Starting right guard Jared Allen and Kony Ealy each had 33 snaps. Johnson had 24 (goal was 25 to 30). Mario Addison had 28.

Luke Kuechly more than tackling machine

The Carolina linebacker picked off Tony Romo twice on Thanksgiving Day, returning his first interception 32 yards for a touchdown. Kuechly leads all linebackers with 10 INT since entering the NFL in 2012. Game balls

A few Panthers fans on my flight. This one is pretty excited.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton played in a pair of custom-made Dabbin' cleats and then wore these shoes to his postgame press conference. What do you think?

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

This is an amazing stat. The Panthers have allowed 45 rushing yards in the last two games combined. Stop the run and pressure the quarterback is the philosophy. It is working.

Very real possibility for Panthers to go undefeated now (0:56)
