LeSean McCoy vs. Pan­thers nickel de­fense

The Buffalo News - - NFL SUNDAY -

Carolina boasts ar­guably the fastest lineback­ing corps in the NFL with the trio of Thomas Davis, Luke Kuechly and Shaq Thomp­son. Those three are so speedy that the Pan­thers stay in “reg­u­lar” de­fen­sive per­son­nel against three-re­ceiver sets a bunch. Carolina stayed in its base 4-3 de­fense on 40 per­cent of snaps last year, fifth-most in the league. If the Pan­thers stay reg­u­lar on pass­ing sit­u­a­tions, can the Bills use McCoy’s speed out of the back­field to ex­ploit them? If the Pan­thers go to nickel per­son­nel with third cor­ner­back Cap­tain Mun­ner­lyn, can the Bills use McCoy to run on that group­ing?
