Despite all the excitement about the return of Jonathan Stewart to practice on Tuesday, the return to game action, for Stewart, probably won’t come on Thursday night. Both he, and coach Ron Rivera, targeted the Falcons game on November 3rd, as a more likely aiming point. Meaning, for the rest of the team, the focus is now on Thursday night’s game against the Bucs, and moving to 4-and-3.
“I mean, it’s big, I think most importantly, you know, not just being over .500, but being 1-0 in the division," Cam Newton said. "That’s really what really counts. So you know, for us, it’s not only a game that, it’s a must win … it’s even a must-must-win, it being a division south opponent.”
