Obada’s interception late in the 3rd quarter would give Cam the opportunity to make his second rushing touchdown of the game and put the Panthers up 14 with a score of 28-14.
“When you’ve got a team playing confident like we’re playing, it makes us hard to beat but as we go into this bye week, we know we can’t let off the pedal,” Newton said. “We have to mend up, get buys back, get guys healthy, keep guys healthy that are healthy and be ready to go when we get back.”
Newton ended yesterday’s game 15-of-24 with 150 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, and two rushing touchdowns.
