Patriots Trail Panthers 7-0 Early

The Patriots trail the Panthers 7-0 after one quarter in Carolina.

We're one quarter into the New England Patriots Monday Night match-up against the Carolina Panthers, and New England trails Carolina early in the second quarter.

The Patriots had a quick three and out to start the game.  And while the offense would move the ball efficiently on their opening drive, a miscommunication along the offensive line led to a Charles Johnson sack and failed opening drive.

The Panthers then took the ball and marched down the field 90 yards in 9 plays.  Steve Smith and Aqib Talib got into it on several plays.

The Patriots have the ball and are driving to begin the second quarter.
