Panthers | Ron Rivera concerned with defense

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera expressed concerned over the team's defense after the first unit surrendered 269 yards and 24 points in the first half alone Thursday, Aug. 25, versus the Cincinnati Bengals. "I'm very concerned," Rivera said of the defense. "I think the biggest thing is looking at where we are in terms of who's on the field. We are playing some young guys and they need to get some experience very quickly. Our two starting tackles (DL Sione Fua and DL Terrell McClain) are both rookies and at times they played like rookies and at times they played like veterans. They are a little bit away but we're going to live and die with these situations."
