The Carolina Panthers are leading the Washington Redskins at the half in today’s week nine matchup 14-3. After the Skins took an early 3-0 lead, Carolina took advantage on controversial play in which a whistle clearly sounded and several players stopped play as a result. Yet Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams was able to scamper down the sideline unabated and the play was ruled a touchdown.
Later in the second quarter, the Redskins manufactured a drive that twice successfully converted fourth down plays. However the Skins were stuffed on a third fourth down attempt on the quarterback keeper from the two yard line.
