The 49ers defense couldn't keep the Panthers out of scoring position and now it will fall on backup quarterback David Carr to put points on the board for the 49ers. The Panthers drove down the field, converting on second down twice and going for the 55-yard field goal, and it was good.
The Niners continue to commit penalties, getting a false start on their first play after the kickoff. Alex Smith is out for the game officially with a sprained shoulder. The Panthers Lead 13-10. Be sure to head to Niners Nation to participate in the gameday thread.
