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

Benjamin dropped this pass in mid air after being hit, but saved it by catching it again, one handed this time, before hitting the ground
