CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- I never thought the absence of Jovan Haye would make such a difference in Tampa Bay's defensive line, but it has.
Carolina's offensive line is doing a good job of pushing Ryan Sims, who's playing in place of the injured Haye, off the ball. The Panthers also are doing a pretty strong job of pushing the other defensive tackle, Chris Hovan, around. Hovan has been taken out of the play on just about every big run by Carolina.
