Panthers at Packers key matchups: Donte Jackson needs to step up this week

The Carolina Panthers travel to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers in the most important game to date in 2019. The team as a whole needs to play at a high level, but here’s the matchups that matter most.

James Bradberry has sat out practice this week with a groin injury, putting his status Sunday in doubt. Even if he plays, the young athlete Donte Jackson likely faces his biggest test of the season. Jackson is the fastest defensive back on this Panthers roster and arguably has the highest ceiling for creating interceptions and pass deflections, and he faces an elite Davante Adams along with Valdes-Scantling.
