So, this is how the first possession of the game ended for the Panthers against Washington.

Watch struggling Carolina quarterback Teddy Bridgewater tuck the ball on fourth down and take a sack.

To be fair the Washington coverage was tough, here. There might have been a chance to squeeze one in to tight end Ian Thomas at the top but it would have been a very tight window, and Bridgewater simply prefers not to tempt fate on those.

We can call this a coverage sack. It’s also part of a frustrating trend of Bridgewater going off the rails any time the prescribed play breaks down.

If Carolina picks a QB early in the draft, their ability to operate outside of structure has to be key.

In any case, the score is 0-0 late in the first quarter.
