The Carolina Panthers wasted no time letting the world know they were ready for their Thanksgiving Day game debut.

In the first minute of the game, the Panthers defense set the tone. Kurt Coleman intercepted Tony Romo's pass and took it back for his first career

Then, with 2:36 remaining in the in the 2nd quarter, it was Luke Kuechly's turn. He picked off Romo and took it to the house for a 32-yard touchdown! The Panthers would lead 23-3 at the end of the first half, and fans were loving it.

Now to third quarter action - Carolina's offense finally putting some points of their own on the board. It would be Cam Newton getting the job done, keeping it for a 4-yard touchdown and a new twist on his touchdown dance. Panthers lead 30 to 6.

Now back to that Carolina defense - Thomas Davis, with the sack! That would be it for Romo, he would leave the game with an injury. Dallas would finally get their first touchdown of the day with 4:23 remaining in the game, but it would be too little too late.

Carolina goes on to win this one 33-14.

Up next for the Panthers will be New Orleans on December 6.
