Rapid Reactions: Panthers pounded in Pittsburgh

Rapid Reactions: Panthers pounded in Pittsburgh
Carolina Panthers Deliver Flowers To Synagogue Shooting Memorial
With that in mind, our weekly panel of prognosticators is siding with the home team – aside from the man of "Steele."

David Steele of the Sporting News, one of the three solo panelists, picked the Panthers to break up the chance for a Steelers sweep. All told, 24 of the 32 analysts represented in this week's panel sided with Pittsburgh.

While seven of eight pickers at CBS Sports went with the Steelers, the SB Nation crew has changed course and moved toward showing Carolina a little love at least. Two weeks ago, seven of their seven writers wrongly picked the Ravens to win in Charlotte; this week three of the seven picked the Panthers though Pittsburgh edged Carolina out with four votes.

No doubt Roethlisberger’s wife Ashley will be hoping the pair can put Brown’s run in with police behind them when they take to the field. 

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Carolina Panthers are the latest professional sports team to honor the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting.

The team delivered flowers to the memorial outside of the Squirrel Hill synagogue Thursday morning according to a post on Twitter.

Carolina is in town to face the Steelers on Thursday Night Football. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m.

As we previously reported … an active shooter opened fire at a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburgh during a prayer service on October 27, leaving 11 people dead in the anti-Semitic attack.
