Panthers_Thomas_Davis_2013For a guy who wasn’t supposed to be doing this, Thomas Davis is doing it pretty well.

The Carolina Panthers linebacker was named NFC defensive player of the week for his two-sack, 10-tackle outburst against the Vikings, which helped propel them to a 35-10 win at Minnesota.

Davis looks fully back to speed after a coming back from three ACL tears to the same knee, and has become a key part of a Panthers defense that ranks third in yards allowed.
