The Carolina Panthers’ projected starting secondary, put together during the offseason, has a combined 22 years of experience, but just seven plays as a unit. And all of them came Thursday night against Pittsburgh.

With Carolina Panthers starting quarterback Cam Newton sidelined with cracked ribs and Derek Anderson taken out after an injury to his right hand in the second quarter, Joe Webb came in and guided the Panthers past the Pittsburgh Steelers 10-0 Thursday night.

Carolina Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin caught four passes for 56 yards on seven targets, but he had some lapses as well.

The Panthers won their final exhibition, 10-0, at Pittsburgh Thursday night and finished the exhibition season 2-2. Stars like Cam Newton, Luke Kuechly, Charles Johnson, Thomas Davis and Ryan Kalil didn't play at all for Carolina, but there were a few standout performances in this very low-profile game.

The Carolina Panthers will close the preseason Thursday night at Heinz Field against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Follow all the action live via Observer reporters' and others' social media updates.
