Panthers Beat Jets With First Defensive and Special Teams Touchdowns of The Season


The Carolina Panthers just won their 4th straight game yesterday afternoon, beating the New York Jets 35-27.

Newton led the team to a powerful start with 2 of the first 3 drives ending a 40-yard field goal for 3 points, but after our second-quarter touchdown, we stagnated.

We ended the first half with a marginal lead of 12-10. The Jets then scored early in the third quarter to take a 17-12 lead, which seemed to awaken the cardiac cats.

Devin Funchess soon caught a 35-yarder from Newton, who then pitched the ball to Jonathan Stewart’s for a 2-yard score.

Our defense scored their first touchdown of the season when Kuechly recovered a stripped ball and ran for 34 yards into the end-zone.

Not to be outdone, our special teams then scored their first touchdown of the season when Kaelin Clay ducked and weaved for a 60-yard end zone run to give us a 32-20 lead.

Wide receiver Devin Funchess led the offense with 108 receiving yards on seven receptions, including one 35-yard pass. Newton ended the game with just under 40% of his passes completed and zero touchdown passes.

The 35-27 win improves our record to 8-3. We’ll now be taking on NFC South division leaders in New Orleans next Sunday.
