Panthers Are 5-0 After Win Over Seahawks
The Carolina Panthers are unbeaten after rallying in the fourth quarter yesterday. They defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 27-23.
Quarterback Cam Newton led the Panthers on a pair of 80-yard touchdown drives in the final period. He threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Greg Olsen with 32 seconds left.
Panthers Coach Ron Rivera said Newton's performance was stellar.
"He was phenomenal. He did the things he needed to do. He threw some really good balls. Delivered a very catchable ball on several occasions," said Rivera. "The guys made some really great plays, too."
Newton said his team shared equally in the victory.
"You know, I don't want to make this about me," Newton said. "It was a great team win, and an unbelievable catch by Greg (Olsen). And just, unbelievable game by him, you know, being there when I needed him the most."
This was the second straight week the Seahawks suffered a late defensive meltdown.
The Panthers are 5-0 for the second time in franchise history. They play the Philadelphia Eagles next week.
