News now: Matt LaFleur making a change on packers…..

Panthers No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young beginning to show poise, moxie as rookie season winds down.

The Carolina Panthers are beginning to see some of the poise and moxie they were hoping for this season out of No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young.

The rookie quarterback turned in his best game of the season on Christmas Eve, completing 23 of 36 passes for a career-high 312 yards and two touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers.

Although the Panthers lost 33-30 when they weren’t able to spike the ball at the Green Bay 31 before time expired, it was still a game where Young took a significant step forward.

He had not thrown for more than 250 yards in a game.

Young seemed to get more comfortable in the pocket as the game progressed, throwing two TD passes to DJ Chark in the fourth quarter to erase a 14-point deficit. He threw the ball precisely and without hesitation. a sign of growing confidence.

It was the second straight game Young showed some good stuff with the game on the line.

Against Atlanta, Young led the Panthers on a 90-yard drive over the final 7:35 to set up Eddy Pineiro’s winning field goal as time expired.

Interim head coach Chris Tabor said Young was in “complete control” on Sunday.
