Cam Newton, Panthers punish rival Falcons
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy promised “payback” and “punishment” for the Atlanta Falcons last week, and he and his Carolina teammates delivered on Sunday.
Despite playing without four starters and having 13 players on injured reserve, the Panthers dominated the NFC South champions as Cam Newton threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns and scored on a 72-yard run in a 30-20 victory.
Newton piled up a career-high 116 yards on the ground and the Panthers racked up 475 total yards to avenge an early-season loss with a dominating performance against their Interstate-85 rivals.
Carolina’s defense was superb through 21/2 quarters building a 23-0 lead and holding a 356-86 edge in total yards to snap a five-game losing streak against the Falcons.
Carolina came in with little to play for except to gain a measure of revenge on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, whom they felt disrespected them after Atlanta’s 30-28 come-from-behind win earlier this season at the Georgia Dome.
Hardy was upset when television cameras caught Ryan cursing at the Panthers sideline after that game telling them to get off their field. Sunday, Hardy turned the tables on the Falcons, telling them the same thing.
Eagles 23, Bucs 21
TAMPA, Fla. — Nick Foles threw a pair of touchdown passes in the final four minutes, including a 1-yarder to Jeremy Maclin with no time remaining Sunday as Philadelphia rallied to beat Tampa Bay and end an eight-game skid — the Eagles’ longest in 42 years.
Foles completed 32 of 51 passes for 381 yards in his fourth start in place of the injured Michael Vick. The rookie threw an 11-yard TD pass to Clay Harbor with 3:55 remaining, then led the Eagles on a 64-yard game-winning drive after the Philadelphia defense forced a Tampa Bay punt.
Chargers 34, Steelers 24
PITTSBURGH | Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Danario Alexander, and San Diego beat Pittsburgh.
The win was San Diego’s first in 15 regular-season visits to Pittsburgh and snapped a four-game losing streak.
The Chargers dominated from the outset, never letting Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger get comfortable in his first game back after missing nearly a month.
Seahawks 58, Cardinals 0
SEATTLE — Marshawn Lynch had three touchdown runs and Seattle set a franchise record for points. The Seahawks forced eight turnovers. Richard Sherman and Bobby Wagner each had two interceptions.
