CHARLOTTE — The Carolina Panthers fell to the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 27-13 on Sunday afternoon at home.
Quarterback Bryce Young threw 173 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions. Two of the interceptions were returned for a touchdown.
Carolina falls to 1-7 on the season.
Head coach Frank Reich was asked after the loss if he ever thought about benching Young during the game.
“I’ve seen this happen to the best QB’s in the game,” Reich explained. “That’s what makes the great ones.”
Defensive star Brian Burns left the game and is on concussion protocol. The team is not sure how long he will be out.
On Monday, Coach Reich called the two pick-6s that Young threw unfortunate. But he said he believes Young will learn from those mistakes and move on.
“He’s a competitor and he’s very resilient and I know he’s looking forward to getting back out there on Thursday,” Reich said.
Young said he plans to do just that.
“You always take lessons, you always learn from them,” he said. “Obviously, stuff you want to do better, but now it’s about applying it. Short week, you have to have urgency on that and make sure you apply those changes to a new plan.”
