In what will be a revenge game of sorts for head coach Frank Reich, not that getting revenge is remotely within his personality, the Panthers have struggled offensively all season. They rank 31st in yards per play (4.28) and 25th in points per game (18.1).
Carolina also ranks 31st in total DVOA (-32.4%), 30th in offensive DVOA (-21.2%) and 29th in defensive DVOA (11.4%).
The Colts have lost their last three games and four out of their last five. Still, they are the only team to score at least 20 points in every game this season.
