13Should - Carolina Panthers
The Carolina running game is a strange beast. For a few seasons, Carolina found themselves atop of many of the league’s rushing categories. However, if you look at the individual stats of the Carolina running backs, you’ll find that none of them are particularly impressive. Of course, the
thing that makes Carolina’s running game so great are the contributions of Cam Newton who is one of the greatest running quarterbacks we’ve ever seen. As we saw last season, though, Carolina relies too much on Newton’s running ability, and teams are starting to figure out how to shut him down. If Newton had a guy like Peterson lined up behind him, he could get in the head of defenses again by forcing them to pick a target and hope they’re right.
