Panthers 2nd Worst Team Against Opposing QBs? (Say what now)


So doing my fantasy research I came upon an interesting article going over strength of schedule over the last 5 weeks. I came upon one obvious data point, and then one that I am still scratching my head over. I wanted to put it out there and get some either rational or at least the conformation that other are just as confused as I.

Now while I don't know the calculations that went into it, fantasy does not equal real life and I haven't trusted anything that Harris has done for many years now I wanted to get some opinions from ya'll.

The Jump is there for a reason so guess ill use it..... JUMP.

First was the fairly common perception that we are terrible against the run.

Playoff Matchups: RBs. Here are the defenses who have been least- and most-vulnerable to opposing RBs the past five weeks:

Toughest vs. RB Weakest vs. RB
1. 49ers D/ST 32. Panthers D/ST
2. Dolphins D/ST 31. Colts D/ST
3. Texans D/ST 30. Buccaneers D/ST
4. Falcons D/ST 29. Bills D/ST
5. Bears D/ST

28. Eagles D/ST

Now while I didn't think we were the worst in the NFL (especially considering what we did to Blunt last week) I can live with this but what I still don't understand was the next chart.

Playoff Matchups: QBs. These are the defenses who have the best and worst opponent-independent ratings against quarterbacks over the past five weeks:

Toughest vs. QB Weakest vs. QB
1. Texans D/ST 32. Patriots D/ST
2. Lions D/ST 31. Panthers D/ST
3. Steelers D/ST 30. Chargers D/ST
4. Chiefs D/ST 29. Eagles D/ST
5. Bears D/ST 28. Bengals D/ST

The Pats, as expected, are the worst but I would have never pegged us as #2. Considering this is my first post (I am one of those creepers that has been following for over 2 years but not contributing) I am not sure what I am trying to accomplish here I just wanted to start the conversation on why this might be, and if it is true what needs to change (or just start a hate Harris rant which is just fine by me).
