2013 Game Summaries
Week 16 - Domenik Hixon only had a role to play in this game because of Steve Smith's injury, but he made the most of it. On the final Panthers drive Hixon ran a crisp out pattern in the red zone and dove beautifully to reel in a low Cam Newton pass for the winning touchdown. The cornerback appeared to be in no mans land and his leverage was incorrect for the coverage, but Hixon took advantage and stands to play a bigger role in the offense if Smith's absence is prolonged.
Week 17 - Domenik Hixon failed to make waves in the absence of veteran receiver Steve Smith and was often targeted as the third or fourth option in Cam Newton's progressions. Hixon made a beautiful ëhands catch' on a dart from Newton for a key first down to get the Panthers out of the shadow of their own goalposts, but was not dynamic in his route running. Hixon was the target of a Newton pass on a slant route in the second quarter, only for the pass to be thrown too high, tipped into the air and intercepted. The blame lay on Newton's shoulders, however, as he failed to keep the pass down. The Panthers will be eager to get Smith back for their playoff game in two weeks' time.
