CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carson Wentz had a choice to make, and you kinda had the feeling which one he was going to choose. Rolling out to his right on a second-and-goal play from the Panthers’ two-yard line, the second-year quarterback found all of his targets covered and tucked the ball to run. As he scrambled across the line of scrimmage, Panthers safety Mike Adams floated into his field of vision, squaring up one yard in front of the goal line. Wentz had already spent two quarters absorbing blow after punishing blow from a Panthers pass rush that was taking full advantage of Lane Johnson’s absence at right tackle.
