Game Preview: Panthers at Redskins
This Monday Night Football matchup between Carolina and Washington isn’t just about cornerback Josh Norman facing his former team, though that’s obviously been the point of emphasis throughout the week. "You guys know me better than I think anyone else," Norman told the Charlotte media during a conference call, "and you should know how this is going to go down." Norman has never been one to tie down his exuberance on game day. Needless to say, this reunion will be packed with emotion. But this game involves much more than Norman’s personal battle. Carolina’s defense, for instance, is going up against the league’s second-ranked offense – a unit boasting a variety of weapons at every skill position.

"I think they’re playing well," quarterback Kirk Cousins said. "I think that especially when you factor in that they’re rookies, it’s hard to come into this league and play right away and understand coverages and concepts and play fast. So very impressive that they’ve been able to play at a high level as rookies. It’s not easy to do."
