  • CAR QB Newton: 16-27, 183 yards, 1 rush TD

Box score


David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

PANTHERS 33, COWBOYS 14 (FINAL): Credit this one to the league's fourth-ranked defense that knocked Dallas quarterback Tony Romo out of the game in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and held the Cowboys to 117 yards and six points through three quarters. This unit had trouble putting a few opponents away early in the year. This was a reminder of how good they can be.

This Packers fan really loves Brett Favre

Brett Favre is joining the Ring of Honor at Lambeau Field tonight. And this fan wants everyone to know. Like. Every. One.


David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers cornerback Josh Norman gets an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for over doing his celebration after stopping a Dez Bryant touchdown pass. He can't continue to do that because eventually it will be costly. Dallas scored on its next play today.

Romo leaves game with collarbone injury

Mark Brunell breaks down Tony Romo's play before being knocked out of the Cowboys game vs. the Panthers with a collarbone injury.

Jay Cutler's 5 worst games vs. Packers

You could say Panthers fan Steph Curry was pretty pumped about linebacker Luke Kuechly's interception ... (via @stephencurry30)


David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

That touchdown run by Cam Newton was dab worthy. But Newton threw a curve and did the twist to throw off all those expecting him to dab in his custom made dabbin' cleats. Related: Panthers 30. Cowboys 6.

Cam Newton rushes for another TD

The Panthers have opened up a whopping 30-6 lead over the Cowboys thanks to Cam Newton's 4-yard run late in the third quarter. It's Newton's 40th career rushing TD, second-most by a QB in the Super Bowl era. Follow live
