  • WR Jason Avant had one carry for one yard. The only other carry of his career was a one-yard gain for the Eagles against the Patriots on 11/25/07.

  • DE Charles Johnson had seven tackles, his most since he had seven against the Falcons on 9/30/12.
  • DE Kony Ealy had his first career sack, which was also the Panthers only sack of the game.
