But after some anxious moments on the Bills' final drive, with the crowd chanting "Keep Pounding", Buffalo's Zay Jones dropped a very catchable ball inside the Panthers 5 on a 4th-and-11 from the Carolina 33 with 0:09 to go.
Olsen had to be carted to the sideline after rejoining the Panthers in the second half.
GETTING HIS KICKS: Gano was locked in a kicking battle in the preseason, but is 6 for 6 on field goal attempts so far this season.
Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen suffered a foot injury against the Buffalo Bills and was ruled out.
Carolina quarterback Cam Newton completed 20 of 32 passes for 228 yards.
Julius Peppers: At age 37, Peppers six tackles, including two sacks of Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, giving him 146 in his 16-year career.
Meeting with reporters in the locker room after the game, Olsen confirmed that the injury, which occurred late in the first half, is a broken foot. The Panthers haven't allowed a touchdown in two games. He has three straight seasons with 1,000 or more receiving yards and four straight seasons with 73 or more receptions. Panthers C Ryan Kalil (sore neck) did not play and was replaced Tyler Larsen. He had one catch for 10 yards at the time of Sunday's injury as the Panthers held a 6-0 lead. The Bills are home next Sunday against Denver.
