Panthers DFL in sacks while blitzing on 3rd down

2

Last year on 3rd down, while sending 5 or more rushers, the Panthers only recorded 1 sack. That ties them for the fewest in the NFL with St Louis and Jacksonville, according to Pat Yasinskas, ESPN's NFC South writer. This stat is a little concerning. With the loss of Julius Peppers, their finest rushing end, and Damione Lewis, their finest rushing tackle, the Panthers will need to create pressure by blitzing. Trying to rely on only the front four, as John Fox likes to do, is not going to put enough pressure on opposing quarterbacks. This number has to go up significantly if the Panther's defense plans on getting off the field at some point.
