Panthers blitzing more on defense, winning games

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers are bringing the heat under first-year coordinator Steve Wilks - and it's working.

Carolina is 5-3 at the midway point of the season, due in large part to its blitzing defense.

The Panthers rank No. 2 in the league in overall defense and have held half of the eight opposing offenses they've faced this season without a touchdown. They're second in the league in sacks with 27.
