Patriots Week 2: Rerun or revenge?

19 months ago these two teams put up one of the best Super Bowls of all time, now, after a wild Week 1, the Patriots (1-0) travel down to Charlotte to take on the Panthers (0-1) who shocked the world by dropping their first game against the Saints.

The Panther fans have had little to celebrate and a lot to grumble about since Adam Vinatieri's 41-yard field goal gave the Pats the 32-29 win. Last season they had to endure a 7-9 season as just about everyone was out with an injury, while the now hated Patriots bulldozed the rest of the league to their 2nd strait Super Bowl title.

Panther fans are hoping they can finally drink the champagne from SB 38 on Sunday...

Vinatieri's kick...looks good!

Like last year, this year the Panthers are having to fight through injuries. Two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kris Jenkins suffered a torn right ACL while trying to tackle Deuce McAllister in the first quarter of last Sunday's 23-20 loss to New Orleans and will miss the rest of the season.

Pats fans are hoping to see Corey Dillon have a big game after running for only 63-yards on 23-carries in the Week 1 win against Oakland.
