Panthers | Struggling to stop the run

The Carolina Panthers have allowed a 100-yard rusher in their last three games, and Atlanta Falcons RB Michael Turner, who Carolina faces in Week 14, has run for 100 yards in six of his 10 games against the Panthers, including earlier this season. Two of the team's best run defenders are out, too. The Panthers give up 128.8 yards per game on the ground, and opponents are running for 5.3 yards per carry in the last three games against them. Defensive coordinator Sean McDermott said the defensive line's "gap integrity" has been compromised recently. DT Ron Edwards (elbow) being out for the season has hurt the team's edge pass rush, too.
