In an interview with ESPN, DeAngelo Williams explains that once he faces Carolina he wants to throw on his goggles because theres going to be blood & guts. The interview very and his comments showed that he was interested in “revenge” against the Panthers.

“I just happened to have a pair around,” Williams said with a laugh. “I’ve used them in the past, but it wasn’t for blood and guts. It was to keep mud out of my eyes when I’m on my ATV. But they’re good for multiple occasions.”

In other words, they were meant for Smith, Carolina’s all-time leading receiver.
