CHARLOTTE, NC: Panthers are not happy with Teddy Bridgewater’s blow to Atlanta defensive end Charles Harris

Carolina running back Mike Davis described Harris against quarterback in the third quarter of Thursday night’s 25-17 loss to the Falcons as cheap shot

As Bridgewater tried to climb up the middle and avoid a sack at the end of the third quarter, he was punched in the midsection by linebacker Dante Fowler and then took a bullet in the back of Harris’s neck. after landing on the ground

Yeah, I think it was cheap, said Davis He hit him on the neck You just hate to see that It was useless

Bridgewater left the game for two series but came back after working on his stiff neck He tried to lead the Panthers in a final drive to tie the game but the rally was interrupted by an interception near the goal line

Bridgewater looked more disturbed as someone pulled out his leg and tripped me up, « slowing his momentum After that he just tried to come down to protect himself because he said I knew that they swarmed

He remained on the pitch for several minutes after the hit as the coaches gathered around him

Falcons coach Raheem Morris has said he knows in this type of situation officials will protect the quarterback and has not challenged Harris’ expulsion

I know he fell on him I know he hit him, Morris said of Harris hit I don’t know if he had full contact with his head, but obviously the officials did saw it that way just like New York and so you have to deal with it and get it off the pitch and finish the game

Bridgewater never seemed comfortable in the pocket overnight, and even more so after returning from injury with 9:45 left in the game

Maybe that’s because, as coach Matt Rhule said, he was under duress all night from the Atlanta flash defense

Carolina didn’t manage to do much throughout the second half, scoring just one basket wide receiver Curtis Samuel said the energy was zapped when Bridgewater left the game

Everyone felt that, says Samuel Every time your QB goes down, no one is happy We didn’t like the hit

This is the third game in a row that Bridgewater had the ball in their hands with a chance for the Panthers to take the lead or equalize, but they failed to convert

We have to find ways to end the game, said Bridgewater « It can’t be common here in the short term

Christian McCaffrey set to return for Carolina’s next game against defending Super Bowl champions Chiefs in November 8

Bridgewater said in the meantime the rapidly fading Panthers (3-5) need to reflect on some things that have gone well so far and other things that need to be improved

One of them will surely be the difficulties of the teams during the third tries, where they converted only 2 chances out of 10

It might require auto-detection during the long hiatus, claiming the Falcons are following Carolina trends

They knew some of the things we wanted to do and they had answers, « said Bridgewater » You watch the tape and we have to assess what these guys did well and what we didn’t do so well
