Panthers at Dolphins 7:30 p.m. Fri. Aug. 19 at Miami Dolphins

In the second preseason game, head coach Ron Rivera would like to see more of the same – at least when it comes to the good stuff.

"Consistency – that's the biggest thing," said Rivera, whose Panthers will visit the Miami Dolphins on Friday night at 7:30. "Last week we'd go a series where we'd have a bad thing happen, and then we'd have a good thing happen, then a bad thing.

"What I want to see is a series of good things without anything bad happening. If we can start to be a little more consistent, that will mean we're taking another step forward."

The Panthers on the whole showed marked improvement from a year ago on offense and special teams in a 20-10 victory over the New York Giants, and their defense was dominant at times.
