CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Aided by a disputed call and Jake Delhomme’s bold third-down run, the Carolina Panthers jump-started a sagging season at the expense of embattled Washington coach Jim Zorn.

The Panthers scored the game’s final 18 points Sunday, with Jonathan Stewart’s 8-yard run with 9:21 left the go-ahead touchdown in a 20-17 win over the Redskins.

The TD was set up when the Panthers recovered a muffed punt at the Washington 12. After Carolina forced a punt, the maligned Delhomme ran a bootleg for a first down with just under 2 minutes left to give the Panthers (1-3) their first win.

The Redskins (2-3) and Zorn suffered another defeat against a previously winless team despite leading 17-2 early in the third quarter.
