Cam Newton puts Patriots on the ropes with rushing touchdown

Inspired by quarterback Cam Newton, who hit form after a hard start to the season, the Panthers held off a late rally from the reigning Super Bowl champions to win 33-30. "So I felt like it was appropriate to stand up with them and stay in the locker room". "It wasn't favorable for us". But Gilmore was called for the second time in the game for illegal use of the hands, chucking Benjamin in the neck at the start of the route.

The Panthers certainly didn't leave anything on the field Sunday.

Malcolm Butler is off to a nice start in Week 4. He converted two third downs, running with the kind of authority that may have surprised the Patriots since Newton continues to rehab from offseason shoulder surgery. But he was more involved than he'd been before the Saints game, and those practice reps were key for a new-look offense that hadn't yet found its footing.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Carson Palmer connected with Larry Fitzgerald on a 19-yard touchdown pass with just 32 seconds remaining in overtime to lift Arizona past San Francisco. The Patriots defense has not been great this year, but that does not mean this offense will not be in for a battle.

"It was all about execution", Newton said. The stadium erupted with "boos" and some fans even burned their jerseys and vowed they were done with the team.

He was targeted a team-high nine times and caught seven passes for 70 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Carolina's upset win at Foxborough.

Newton came back from an egregious early interception into double coverage to finish 22 of 29 with 316 yards, three touchdowns and an interception (plus ran in a score himself), and Gano's 48-yard field goal with four seconds left gave the Panthers a 33-30 victory over the New England Patriots. Only Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers has compiled more passing yards and touchdown passes. Everything is important. We've just got to do it right.

The Panthers' offense has struggled to find a rhythm - and the end zone - in the first three weeks of play. "That's what my mentality has to be".

Carolina's running game hasn't been effective either.

"It was to signify black power", Newton said after the game. He then proceeded with his customary Superman celebration. The Panthers defense would answer, forcing a punt after an initial conversion on a Brandin Cooks 16-yard completion. Without him they're relying much more heavily on the rush as veteran Jonathan Stewart and rookie Christian McCaffrey have been getting their fair share of touches in both the ground and receiving game. "When you get the ball you have to go straight up the field". "He's a different guy. The time is upon us for us to do something to bring people closer together". Hightower played at Alabama, and Newton played at Auburn.

New England Patriots star Tom Brady was in line for yet another achievement on Sunday, but it was thwarted by the Carolina Panthers.

"Well, everything's important, so you need to do a good job in every area", he said.

But Mercedes were in the ball park from the start of qualifying and Hamilton pulled out another stunning lap to secure pole. Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo filled the second row, with Valtteri Bottas fifth in the second Mercedes .
