Newton's 3 TDs help Panthers beat Lions

09 October 2017

Newton has thrown for 300-plus yards in consecutive games for just the second time in his career. In the third, the Panthers made it 27-10 after Newton's 31-yard touchdown pass to Benjamin and Gano's 44-yard field goal.

Ed Dickson: The Lions had no answer for the Panthers' tight end, whose 175 receiving yards were the 10th most in team history (and more than Dickson had in any of his three previous seasons in Carolina). "Obviously, we've had - I'm talking about this game in particular - way too many".

For the second week in a row, the Panthers saw a big lead go away by allowing a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown drives.

Newton, whose Panthers face the Lions in Detroit, has shown contrition after initially laughing at Charlotte Observer sports reporter Jourdan Rodrigue for asking a question about Devin Funchess embracing the physicality of routes. "He made the catch and a lot of times just falls forward for the first down". The rookie running back from Stanford caught a shovel pass from Newton and scooted 6 yards for the score. He was electric in Detroit on Sunday, throwing for 355 yards, 10.76 YPA and three touchdowns, while not turning the ball over once. The Panthers have won both of those games.

Bump fire stocks might be changed, but by whom?
One of the first laws Trump signed permitted 75,000 people deemed too mentally ill to manage their financial affairs to buy guns. It was a surprising shift for the leading gun industry group, which in recent years has resolutely opposed any gun regulations.

For a second week in a row, the Lions haven't been able to protect their franchise player.

"He's in his third season for us and he's got big-play ability because of his size, his speed, his quickness", said Carolina coach Ron Rivera. "We need him. Hopefully, he gets healthy really soon and is out there with me working together".

Dickson entered the game having seasons of 115, 121 and 134 yards in his first three years in Carolina, but by halftime he had caught four passes for 152 yards.

In rushing, Ameer Abdullah has rushed for 257 yards and a touchdown in 66 attempts while Stafford added 53 yards in 10 attempts. "My sarcasm trying to give somebody kind of a compliment turned in ways I never would have even imagined", he said. "I think it's my job".

Matthew Stafford walked gingerly out of the Detroit Lions' locker room late Sunday afternoon, clearly favoring his right leg - walking with it nearly peg-legged straight after Detroit's 27-24 loss to Carolina on Sunday. "I just want the opportunity to prove what I have, and I think they're starting to look at what I can do", Dickson said.

Problematic? Sure. But if a peck of penalties early and unwelcomed drama that ends with victories over the reigning Super Bowl champions and a team that rarely loses at home is as bad as it gets, then things are pretty good.

"But the third-and-ones, the fourth-and-ones, the third-and-one we threw it, and obviously the fourth-and-one we couldn't get an inch".
