<p>Jerricho Cotchery’s still got it. The 33-year-old veteran of the Jets and Steelers equaled his touchdown total from last year when he nabbed a Cam Newton pass for a score. Without Kelvin Benjamin around, the Panthers will need Cotchery to continue drinking from the fountain of youth. In addition, Ted Ginn (who was actually the leading receiver for the Panthers yesterday with 54 yards) will have to show his face early and often in games.</p> <p>Many in Carolina are hoping that Josh Norman will become the next big thing at cornerback. After picking off two passes last year, Norman notched a pick-six of Blake Bortles on Sunday. Without a doubt, Norman is a very good player and definitely the Panthers’ best corner.</p>. NFC South. 1-0. Carolina Panthers. 16. player. 87
