Via my Twitter account @Scott_Fowler, I asked Panthers fans a few days ago what the best single play of the 2015 season has been so far for 7-0 Carolina.
I got dozens of responses, and the No. 1 choice in a runaway was Josh Norman’s game-saving interception at home vs. New Orleans. The second pick was Greg Olsen’s 26-yard touchdown catch vs. Seattle that clinched that comeback win. Oddly enough (to me at least), Cam Newton’s Olympics-worthy front flip into the end zone on a rushing TD got few mentions.
Here’s a sampling:
@Hooner49: Norman’s game-clinching pick vs. the Saints. Just JNo doing JNo things.

@TLeeG: The 26 yard TD pass to Olsen at the end of the Seahawks game. Shows we can come from behind, and put the league on notice.
@LamontBracey: the pick by Norman of Cam that led to their fight in preseason. This team was nasty and ready to compete from the jump.
@apackclt: was going to say Olsen catch. But Norman INT preserved a win & launched a star. That play prevented bad loss & put #24 on map.
@Jwhitleyradio: Harper Deflection v Indy we had no business winning the game at that point.
@PanthersSpain: you have to say Norman’s amazing pick in the endzone against the Saints.
@TrebTreb8: Mike Tolberts TD where he got bounced back along the sideline then barreled it in for the TD.
