Carolina's front seven will present problems for the offensive line and C.J. Spiller led by 2012 first rounder Luke Kuechly. Carolina held the Seattle Seahawks and Marshawn Lynch to just 70 yards on 26 attempts. On the opposite side, Buffalo hasn't faced a running quarterback since Seattle's Russell Wilson ran nine times for 92 yards and three touchdowns last December. Carolina's backs averaged more than five yards per carry a week ago while Buffalo's defense allowed the New England Patriots to rush for over 4.5 yards per carry and 158 yards on the ground.
