The Panthers just won their third straight game last night against the Dolphins.
For most of the first half, the game was fairly balanced – then, with the Panthers leading by just 3 points, Luke Kuechly came out of nowhere and pulled in what many consider to be a game-changing interception.
“Without me even knowing … I’m pretty sure Luke knew what was coming, and I bet he wasn’t supposed to be there. That’s just Captain America,” said Cam after the game.
The win was largely thanks to the Panthers domination on the ground, racking up almost 300 total rushing yards (a few yards shy of breaking a franchise record). Christian McCaffrey scored two touchdowns and Jonathan Stewart had a season-high 110 yards, showing new signs of his past glory.
After the game, Cam praised Stewart’s performance, “Guys were just sensing that he was kind of down and low, so for him to come out … man, it’s big for not only him, but for everybody else. For him, getting confidence in himself. And for the people who never doubted his talents … for him to come out today was a big deal for us.”
Cam himself also put up some truly impressive numbers, throwing for 254 yards with four touchdowns and running for another 95 yards. He even had the biggest run of the night at 69 yards.
Wow.@CameronNewton using his WHEELS.
