As we head into Week 14 of the NFL season, the Carolina Panthers stand as the only remaining unbeaten team in the NFL at 12-0 and are the first team to formally clinch their division.
Fans across the NFL have taken notice of their success, with three Panthers players in the top 10 for jersey sales over the past month. Luke Kuechly, featured in an earlier edition of Jersey Report, is the most popular jersey, followed by teammates Cam Newton at No. 3 and Greg Olsen at No. 8. Although Kuechly and the Panthers defense are deserving of praise, it’s Newton and his favorite target Olsen who are stealing the spotlight.
After star wideout Kelvin Benjamin tore his ACL in the preseason, many questioned how Newton and the Panthers would move the ball on offense. But the Panthers have made do, thanks in large part to Greg Olsen. Olsen ranks second in the NFL in receptions and receiving yards among tight ends. Meanwhile, Newton is getting it done with 25 passing touchdowns (against only 10 interceptions) and seven rushing touchdowns.
This week, Carolina looks to stay undefeated when it takes on division rival Atlanta. Whoever plays the star on Sunday—whether it be Kuechly, Newton, Olsen, or someone unexpected—Panthers fans have plenty to celebrate this season
