Cam Newton chalked up another stat in his favorite category, wins. The Panther defeated the Skins 33-20. Newton threw for 256 yards and a TD, and also ran for 59 yards and a score. Newton is steadily becoming a trusted player in the NFL, no easy task for a QB whose pocket skills were called into question before he ever played a down. If he continues at this pace there is no telling how much success he could have.
The defense held together because they stopped the run for the most part. The Panthers allowed only 92 yards rushing, and were able to cause 3 turnovers in the game. Carolina has lost 4 games by less than 7 points, and are getting closer and closer to turning this thing around. If it happens this year, then the team is ahead of schedule. Next week the Panthers take on the Vikings at home. If they earn another win, you never know what could happen in the Wild West (South).
