The Carolina Panthers are at it again, as they have a big lead over the visiting Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Conference Championship game. This is the fourth straight game that they’ve led by 17 or more points at halftime.
Last Sunday, they had a huge lead on the Seattle Seahawks before they started to come back in the third quarter. The Panthers had to hold on to advance to today’s game.
It was a turnover fest in the final few minutes of the half. Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer first fumbled the ball. On the following possession by the Panthers, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton threw an interception that was picked off by Cardinals star corner back Patrick Peterson.
Then, when the Cardinals had an opportunity to put at least some more points on the board, Palmer threw that away when he was picked off.
Newton had a one-yard run to put the Panthers up 24-7. Four minutes earlier, the Cardinals got on the board when rookie running back David Johnson scored on a one-yard run.
Ginn Jr. is facing his former team as he was a member of the Cardinals last season. They released him in early 2015, before returning to the Panthers.
