Bryce Young’s teammate has to save QB from near blunder

Panthers QB Bryce Young lining up behind right guard

Bryce Young is clearly going through some growing pains in his rookie season. The Carolina Panthers quarterback nearly committed a novice mistake on Monday night during his team’s clash against the New Orleans Saints at Bank of American Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

The Panthers were down 13-6 and facing 3rd-and-3 with 6:20 left in the game at the Saints’ 13-yard line. Young, possibly either distracted or a little bit too locked in, was seen lining up behind the right guard Calvin Throckmorton instead of center Bradley Bozeman.

Panthers running back Miles Sanders had to give Young a nudge to the left to get the QB back to proper alignment.

Perhaps the near-mistake rattled Young a bit, as the rookie took a sack that pushed the Panthers back five yards. What appeared to be a four-down series for Carolina in trying to score a game-tying touchdown turned into a field goal. The Saints scored a touchdown on their ensuing possession.

Young managed to bounce back with a touchdown pass in his team’s next drive. But with little time left on the clock, the score proved to be too late as the Panthers lost 20-17 to the Saints.

Young went 22-of-33 for 153 yards and 1 touchdown as Carolina dropped to 0-2.
