Coach Ron Rivera talks about the ups and downs for Haruki Nakamura on Sunday and tight end Greg Olsen weighs in on Cam Newton's performance


CHARLOTTE (AP) -- While Panthers coach Ron Rivera says he isn't second-guessing his decision making in Sunday's heartbreaking 30-28 loss to the Falcons, he is considering a change at free safety.

Haruki Nakamura had a nightmarish day for the Panthers. He had a hand in allowing all three Atlanta touchdowns, and the 59-yard reception by Roddy White when the Falcons were backed up at their 1-yard line with 59 seconds left in the game.

That reception led to Matt Bryant's winning field goal.

Rivera says he'll "evaluate different combinations'' this week at free safety as the Panthers prepare to host Russell Wilson and the Seahawks Sunday.

That includes starting Sherrod Martin, a two-year starter for Carolina who was benched this summer after Carolina signed Nakamura -- then a Baltimore free agent.
