Panthers defense aims to put 'humbling' loss behind them

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Thomas Davis said Carolina's most recent loss could turn out to be a positive for the Panthers moving forward.

That's why Davis thanked Steelers coach Mike Tomlin at midfield for "humbling" the Panthers after his team put up 52 points on Carolina's once-vaunted defense last Thursday night.

The 13-year NFL veteran explained Wednesday that the embarrassing performance might have been just what Carolina (6-3) needed to regain its focus on defense, for players to get on the same page and make a playoff run beginning this Sunday when the Panthers visit the Lions.
