Bringing in the Cats

We've got kitties on either side of the bye. The Jaguars, as expected, turned out to be relatively toothless. Next up, Panthers at home. We aren't birds, but how concerned should we be about the next feline encounter?

Statistically (based on yards/game), the 49ers have:

#13 Total Offense vs Panthers #3 Total Defense.

#1 Running Offense vs Panthers #2 Running Defense

#31 Passing Offense vs Panthers #9 Passing Defense

More importantly, the Panthers have only allowed 13.7 points per game (second only to the Kansas City Chiefs) They have only allowed 6 Touchdowns thus far in 2013 (2nd to Pittsburgh's 5).

On the other side of the ball, the Panthers have:

#22 Total Offense vs S.F. #9 Total Defense

#8 Rushing Offense vs S.F. #14 Rushing Defense

#29 Passing Offense vs S.F. #8 Passing Defense

In points allowed per game, we rank #7, so our defense is good at stopping opponents no matter where they are on the field..

In Overall Team Efficiency, Football Outsiders has the Panthers at #4 and our Niners at #8

You can usually find a stat to support whatever you want to say about a team, but it's a safe bet that the upcoming Panthers are no Jaguars and a whole lot more CAT than Kitty.
