CAROLINA: New offensive coordinator Mike Shula was promoted from QB coach, so there won't be many offensive changes. Carolina uses a zone-blocking scheme in a number of looks, from spread to wishbone. Jonathan Stewart figures to lead the RB committee in carries, with DeAngelo Williams in a No. 2 role and Mike Tolbert splitting time at halfback and fullback. They use a lot of zone read options with Cam Newton, who could very well lead the team in rushing again as Shula is committed to letting his star pupil make plays. This is a vertical passing game that works off the threat of the run. Shula will continue to make it a point to feed Steve Smith any time he's in single coverage. Smith still does most of his work downfield. Flex TE Greg Olsen serves as essentially a No. 2 receiver, working up the seam most of the time but also coming back on some checkdowns in the middle of the field. They started to work in Brandon LaFell last year as a catch-and-run guy, and he figures to kick inside when they increasingly go three-wide with field-stretcher Domenik Hixon outside. The red zone will continue to be where Newton takes over. He had nearly half the team's rushing attempts inside the 10 last year, and he and Tolbert essentially split goal line chances. When they throw, Olsen figures to be the No. 1 target. This defense will need another year or two before becoming an above-average unit. LB Luke Kuechly led the NFL with 164 tackles as a rookie, and the Panthers drafted two large DTs in Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short who will be great down the road. But although no Carolina player had more than two interceptions in 2012, the team did nothing to bolster its secondary. The best cover men are underwhelming CBs Josh Norman and Josh Taylor, and top SS Haruki Nakamura has no business being a starter in the NFL.
ARIZONA: The Cardinals again reached into the Bill Cowher coaching tree to get their head coach, and Bruce Arians brought offensive line guru Harold Goodwin from Indianapolis with him to be the offensive coordinator. Expect them to build this offense around a power running game with a lot of between-the-tackles running. Arians had Rashard Mendenhall in Pittsburgh and plans on giving him a monster workload. Mendenhall should be better in his second full season back from a torn ACL. Ryan Williams is shaping up as a change-of-pace back and will have to beat out Mendenhall for third down duties. Arians' passing game takes a lot of deep shots. While Carson Palmer's arm strength disappeared years ago, he's still willing to loft passes deep and let his receivers try to make plays. That's good news for Larry Fitzgerald, and Arians will use a lot of movement and bunch formations to get him open. The Cards will use a lot of three-receiver sets with Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd running some deep crosses, and Andre Roberts in the slot. TE Rob Housler should be frequently targeted over the middle. Arians has never used his backs as receivers much, but always had a habit of getting cute in the red zone, using a lot of play-action. Fitzgerald is obviously their best red zone threat. The Cardinals allowed 137 rushing YPG last year (5th-most in NFL), but they seriously bolstered their defense in the offseason with new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and four quality free agents in LB Karlos Dansby, SS Yeremiah Bell and DEs Matt Shaughnessy and Frostee Rucker. Rookies FS Tyrann Mathieu and ILB Keith Minter could be special players, but two Arizona players that already are special are DE Calais Campbell and CB Patrick Peterson, who had seven of the Cardinals' 22 interceptions last year (2nd in NFL).

*Panthers-Cardinals Preview* ============================


Following the most lopsided win in the franchise's 19-year history, the well-rested Carolina Panthers are feeling confident entering a five-game stretch against teams without winning records.

Coming off their bye week, the Panthers hope to put together another all-around dominant performance Sunday against an Arizona Cardinals team that is struggling to put points on the board.

Carolina (1-2) dropped its first two games by a combined six points before bouncing back with a 38-0 rout of the visiting Giants in Week 3.

"We have to be realistic because we've not arrived by any stretch of the imagination," coach Ron Rivera said. "We have to approach each week as a learning situation, a growing situation and keep shooting for the top of the mountain."

Rivera's defense paved the way in the team's first shutout since 2008, allowing 150 total yards after giving up 806 in the previous two weeks. The Panthers also sacked Eli Manning seven times and forced three turnovers despite playing without four starters on defense and missing four defensive backs.

Free safety Charles Godfrey was lost to a season-ending Achilles injury the previous week, cornerback Josh Thomas (concussion) and defensive tackle Dwan Edwards (hamstring) were injured, and defensive coordinator Sean McDermott benched struggling three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Jon Beason for Chase Blackburn.

Thomas is expected to play and Edwards is optimistic that he'll be ready as the Panthers begin a stretch of games against Arizona (2-2), Minnesota (1-3), St. Louis (1-3), Tampa Bay (0-4) and Atlanta (1-3).

"We know exactly what we've got to do to keep winning," said safety Robert Lester. "That's the mindset we're going to keep, that's the mindset we're going to have going into Arizona."

The Cardinals couldn't get anything going for three quarters Sunday before scoring 10 points in the final 3:06 to beat Tampa Bay 13-10 and end a nine-game road losing streak.

Quarterback Carson Palmer hit Larry Fitzgerald for a game-tying 13-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, but he also threw two interceptions in the first half. Running back Rashard Mendenhall lost the first of his two fumbles in the opening half to set up Tampa Bay's only touchdown.

Arizona finished with 296 total yards - 248 passing by Palmer - three turnovers and 10 penalties for 90 yards. After totaling 49 points and 738 yards in their first two games, the Cardinals have put up 20 and 543 yards in their last two.

They also traded struggling left tackle Levi Brown to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, and he'll likely be replaced by Bradley Sowell, who was claimed off waivers from Indianapolis on Sept. 1.

"If it was one guy, it'd be easy to fix," coach Bruce Arians said of the offensive woes. "Seems like we've got eight or nine guys on each play playing extremely well and two guys, and they keep swapping it out, decide to not do the right thing."

Andre Ellington is making a bid for more playing time in the backfield after rushing four times for 29 yards against the Buccaneers. He's averaging 6.2 yards per carry on the season - 2.8 more than Mendenhall.

Carolina's DeAngelo Williams is coming off his best effort, rushing for 120 yards on 23 carries against the Giants. Williams has averaged 125.3 yards on 6.0 per carry over his last four games dating back to last season.

Rookie Kenjon Barner, a sixth-round draft pick out of Oregon, is targeting Sunday to make his NFL debut after spraining his foot in the preseason. Jonathan Stewart, however, remains out while recovering from offseason ankle surgery.

The Panthers, third in the league with 151.0 rushing yards per game, could have a difficult time against an Arizona team that ranks second against the run (75.0 ypg) after limiting Tampa Bay's Doug Martin to 45 yards on 27 carries.

The Cardinals also are getting starting linebacker Daryl Washington back from a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Quarterback Cam Newton hopes Washington won't be too much of a detriment after completing 36 of 65 passes for 452 yards with five scores and two interceptions in his last two contests. Newton also has rushed for 60 yards and a score on 11 carries over that span.

"We have to keep going and get the mentality of 'We can win - and we will win,'" said Newton, who threw for a career-low 125 yards in a season-opening loss to Seattle.

Newton faces the Cardinals for the first time since his NFL debut in 2011 when he was 24 of 37 for 422 yards - a record for any rookie in his opener - with two touchdowns and one pick in a 28-21 loss in Arizona.

With that victory, the Cardinals snapped a seven-game regular-season losing streak to the Panthers.
