The Panthers roll into Pittsburgh winners of three straight games, including two at home and a 42-28 beating on the Tampa bay Buccaneers last week. Carolina enters Thursday one game back of the 7-1 New Orleans Saints – who come off a 45-35 win, handing the Los Angeles Rams their first loss this season – for first place in the NFC South.
The Steelers are also riding a winning streak of their own. Pittsburgh has won three games, allowing no more than 21 points in each contest, to take control of first place in the AFC North; the Steelers own a half-game lead on the 5-3 Cincinnati Bengals, and now two-game advantage on the Baltimore Ravens after a 23-16 road victory last week.
Newton is on pace to set a career-high in completion percentage this season. To date, Newton is completing 67.3% of his passes for 1,893 yards and 15 touchdowns. During the team’s current winning streak, Newton is completing 69.9% of his passes for six touchdowns and no interceptions, and better utilizing the collection of receivers (Christian McCaffrey, Greg Olsen, Devin Funchess and rookie D.J. Moore) around him.
Roethlisberger is having himself a season as well. After a rough start, and still without the presence of Le’Veon Bell in the Steelers backfield, Roethlisberger is third in the NFL in passing yards with 2,560. He is currently on pace for the first 5,000-yard passing season of his 15-year career – he finished with 4,952 in 2014, coincidentally the last time he played all 16 games during the regular season.
Without Bell, James Conner is still performing at a high level. The 2017 third-round pick is filling in seamlessly with Pittsburgh, rushing for 706 yards (four consecutive 100-yard rushing games), second only to Todd Gurley. In addition, Conner has 38 receptions for 379 yards. Conner is on pace to eclipse 2,000 total yards, something Bell has only done once in his career.
Regarding Bell, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin says the team would rather have “volunteers” than “hostages.” If Bell doesn’t report by this time next week, he will forfeit the eligibility to play for the remainder of the 2018 season.
