Carolina redeemed their week 1 loss with a blowout against San Francisco in the season's home opener.
The 49ers drew first blood with a field goal making it 3-0 but the Panthers responded quickly by forcing a fumble and recovering it for a touchdown right away
From there it was smooth sailing.
Defensive stops, led by LB Luke Kuechly kept the 49ers from competing against the repeatedly successful offensive plays by Carolina
Kelvin Benjamin, who missed all last year due to injury, made his present felt with 7 mostly spectacular catches, 108 yards, and 2 touchdowns
The 49ers attempt to retaliate but Carolina stops them quickly.
Followed by another Kelvin Benjamin touchdown
Carolina wraps it up with another touchdown, a few field goals, and an interception to seal the game.
46-27. 1-1 and on to week 3
