LeSean McCoy couldn't get anything go against the Panthers who managed just 9 yards on 12 carries. The Panthers had three sacks, two by Julius Peppers in his first home game since re-signing with them.

Olsen won't return to Sunday's game versus the Bills due to a right foot injury, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

In case you missed the top news, previews and notable storylines throughout the week ahead of Sunday's matchup, here's everything you need to know about the game.

The Panthers needed a late stop to seal the win.

Both the Bills and Panthers are coming off of Week 1 victories.

The defense played great throughout, sacking quarterback Cam Newton six times and limiting the Panthers to just 255 total yards.

Peppers had plenty of help from a Carolina defense that allowed only one first down the entire first half and still has not given up a touchdown in 2017.

The Bills offense looked pathetic for most of this game but still had a chance at the end to win it thanks to a stellar defensive performance.

A Tyrod Taylor pass bounced off the hands of rookie wide receiver Zay Jones inside the Carolina 5 on fourth and 11 from the Carolina 33, and the Panthers survived. He is the fourth active running back to achieve the feat, joining Darren Sproles, Matt Forte and Frank Gore. Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin left after taking a brutal hit to his left shoulder in the end zone from Bills FS Jordan Poyer, but did return. Dareus returned to the game while Glenn did not.
