Ben and the starters played the first quarter and looked shaky at best. They had one nice drive but it stalled out in the red zone when Ben overshot Moore. The starting defense looked like crap, they were getting run and passed on by the backups of Carolina.

Im just glad it's over now and we can get ready for the real games. Dixon only threw 1 pass but it was good for a TD. Batch went the rest of the way and didn't throw much. Im sure Tomlin was worried about any injury to him since Lefty is hurt now. It was a good chance to work on the running game, which looked real good tonight with Dwyer and Redman.
