Panthers feel defense headed in right direction

December 20, 2011

CHARLOTTE — A quick glimpse at the numbers suggests the Panthers should focus on upgrading their defense next offseason.

The Panthers (5-9) have held three of their last four opponents to fewer than 20 points entering Sunday's game against Tampa Bay (4-10).
