Carolina's offense has been one of the best in the National Football League this season and is allowing the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to fantasy defenses. With a record that included a win against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles that tied the largest comeback in franchise history (17 points), the Panthers left Pittsburgh's Heinz Field tying for the worst loss in franchise history with a 31-point defeat to the tune of 52-21.

Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense used an early surge and a first-quarter defensive touchdown to jump out to a big lead as the Steelers pounded the Panthers 52-21 on Thursday night for their fifth straight victory.

NOTABLE: This marks the first regular season meeting between the Steelers and Panthers since former Steelers minority owner David Tepper bought controlling interest in the Panthers; Tepper was a minority owner for Pittsburgh from 2009 to 2018.

On a short week, Pittsburgh could not have wished for a better home outing especially against a team that was rolling as well while the Panthers will want to wipe this game away from memory as soon as possible.

It's not raining in Charlotte because the Carolina Panthers got "whooped" by the Pittsburgh Steelers. "So, there are questions that we may get to at the end of the season".

Christian McCaffrey ran for a touchdown, added two scoring receptions and piled up 138 total yards for Carolina (6-3).

She also dismissed the Justice Department report that found rampant racial discrimination in the Ferguson Police Department. Ms Kelly is in the second year of a three-year contract that reportedly pays her more than NZ$30 million a year.

"This league is hard, this league will humble you real fast", Carolina tight end Greg Olsen said. Carolina allowed the same total in a 52-9 loss to Oakland on December 24, 2000.

The Steelers, who scored on seven of their first eight drives, held a 17-point halftime lead and increased the advantage to 38-14 on the opening series of the second half. Now, going back to Eric Reid's hit on Roethlisberger, it didn't appear that Reid was aiming for the Steelers' quarterback's head and it was completely accidental. He believes the fact he won't have to if it comes to that says a lot about Roethlisberger - and a lot about the current climate within the Pittsburgh locker room. "It was a bang-bang play". "Just trying to stand up for him and show him we've got his back". They just do a fantastic job of applying pressure, and not letting the QB get the ball out of their hands. Pouncey said Reid apologized to them and said the hit was unintentional.

The Panthers plan to take the extended weekend to regroup for a road game at Detroit on November 18.

Maybe not, but Pittsburgh (6-2-1) looked every bit the part of legitimate contender in the AFC, perhaps for the first time this season.

"If you get over it, and you start preparing on your next game and focusing on your next game, you give yourself the chance to win".

What can we say about this team?
