In 2015, McCoy rushed for 5.2 yards per carry at home compared to 3.9 on the road.
"He's a solid guy", Funchess said.
They also have Michael Thomas, one of the game's most dynamic young pass catchers, who was sixth in National Football League receiving yards with 104 hauls for 1,245 yards. He's a (former) Pro Bowler. He deserves that, and he's been having a solid year.
The opposite sideline will feature Olsen.
For the third time this season, the Panthers will take on the Saints on Sunday.
Their comeback bid may have come to an end during the 4th, however, after starting QB Cam Newton took a brutal shot to the head during a play. "I prepare like every game could be my last or (like) it's a playoff game or I've got something to prove and I've got an edge", he said, per ESPN. The Carolina Panthers are looking for another shot at the championship since losing it to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50, while the New Orleans Saints haven't been to the big dance since Super Bowl 34 in 2009.
Minnesota had a chance to set up a game-winning field goal in the final minute of the fourth quarter and advance to Super Bowl XLIV, but then-Vikings quarterback Brett Favre infamously threw an interception with under 15 seconds to play, and the Saints went on to win in overtime. In four meetings since the start of 2016, Thomas has totaled 22 receptions for 303 yards and three touchdowns. "Gregg's a pass-catching threat, a good route runner, got good hands". Usually when it's in his radius, he catches it.
Two years later, the Panthers took down NY in the first round and Chicago in the divisional round, and Seattle pummeled Carolina in the 2005 NFC Championship game.
The duo rushed for almost 2,000 yards combined in the regular-season.
"The best way to handle that noise is to get up", center Ryan Kalil said. "If you look at those two games, we flat out didn't get it done".
History isn't in the Panthers favor, though.
He often takes on as much as he can, but it's a delicate balance, and he'll nearly surely need more from his supporting cast to beat the Saints in the Superdome. They only allow 88.1 yards rushing, which is third best in the NFL. "It's an awesome opportunity". Few players are capable of discouraging defenses like Newton, who is just as happy trucking over a safety, outrunning a cornerback in the open field, or lofting a deep ball to a wide-open tight end after forcing teams to play eight in the box. Those 10 takeaways netted just 23 points off turnovers. "Fortunately we were able to win both and kind of get back to even water, and begin to string some wins together". "That's something we that we have not done a good job of this year".
Edmund went down on the baseline after appearing to roll over on his right ankle mid-rally. "It's very unfortunate what happened". Earlier in the day Kyrgios came back from losing the first set to defeat former finalist Alexandr Dolgopolov 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Wildlife officials are asking boaters to be extra vigilant and to avoid areas where large numbers of manatees have gathered. Which Gulf World's Senior Veterinarian, Julie Cavin, said can be too cold for many sea turtle to handle.
Police checked in and around the station after the blast to make sure there were no other explosive devices. Numerous illegal hand grenades found in Sweden are being imported from former Yugoslav nations, he said.
Even so, Quinn senses his team, boosted by last year's long postseason run, is peaking at the right time . Matt Bryant converted the field goal three plays later and the Falcons jumped out to an early 3-0 lead.
Directing his words to Trump, he added: "Personally, I'm excited for your Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards". The show bought a Times Square billboard and took out an ad on Twitter to court the president's attention.
