The Carolina Panthers and their fans celebrated throughout the streets of Charlotte on Sunday, following a big Panthers’ win.
A strong defensive effort and a late score from a new player playing in his first-ever game for Carolina helped the Panthers defeat the New Orleans Saints 22-14 on Sunday. The win ended their year-long slump at home in front of a cheering crowd.
Carolina (1-2) hadn’t won a game at home in Charlotte in 371 days, since playing the Saints in Week 2 of the 2021 season.
“Trust me, I’m happy,” said Panthers head coach Matt Rhule. Rhule is now 11-25 in his 36 games as Carolina’s head coach.
