Derek Anderson completed 24-of-34 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns in the Panthers' Week 1 win over the Bucs, 20-14.
Anderson was terrific, showing a willingness to throw to 6-foot-5 rookie Kelvin Benjamin even when he was "covered," and tossing heat seekers down the seam to Greg Olsen. Probably not even the Panthers themselves could have foreseen Anderson playing so well after not making an NFL start since 2010. Although we anticipate Cam Newton (ribs) returning in Week 2 against Detroit, it's good to know that the Panthers' passing game is in capable hands if Cam suffers another injury. Anderson has never been a precise passer, but when he's on his game he is aggressive and has an absolute cannon of an arm. Sep 7 - 7:21 PM
