Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers didn't wait until the fourth quarter to turn it up a notch on offense.The result was an impressive win against the league's top-ranked defense.Newton completed 21 of 29 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 52 yards and another score as the Panthers soundly defeated the Baltimore Ravens 36-21 on Sunday for their ninth straight win at home.Christian McCaffrey had two touchdowns and the Panthers continued to get electrifying performances from different players. This time … ght-jersey , it was rookie wide receiver D.J. Moore, who turned in his best game as a pro with 129 yards from scrimmage."We present a lot of issues for defenses and that is what this offense was kind of built for," Newton said. "We have dynamic players all around the field."Unlike last Sunday when they needed three fourth quarter touchdowns to erase a 17-0 deficit and the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles 21-17, the Panthers took it to the Ravens early and often.After spotting the Ravens a 7-0 lead on the game's first possession, the Panthers (5-2) scored on four straight drives in the final 16 minutes of the first half to break the game open and take a 24-7 halftime lead.Newton threw an 11-yard TD pass to Greg Olsen , McCaffrey ran for a 11-yard score and leaped into the air to corral a 6-yard TD pass that ricocheted off the hands of safety Eric Weddle and into his arms in the end zone. And when Baltimore (4-4) climbed to within 13 late in the third quarter, Newton was there to calmly drive the Panthers 85 yards in nine plays, racing in untouched from 12 yards out on a naked bootleg to put the game away early.The Panthers rolled up 386 yards against a Ravens defense that had come in allowing a league-low 280.6 yards and 14.4 points per game.Baltimore seemed a step behind all day long, unable to figure out the Panthers multiple misdirection plays."They present a lot of misdirection and formations, different plays and was tough to get in a rhythm with them and Cam played an outstanding game," Ravens safety Eric Weddle said.When asked why Carolina's misdirection offense was so effective, Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith held up one hand and said, "Look at my hand. Now if I smack you with this one (my other hand), you won't see it coming. That's how it works."PANTHERS DEFENSECarolina showed it can still play a little 'D' as well, forcing three turnovers.The momentum-turning play came in the first quarter when defensive tackle Kyle Love crashed through the line and delivered a vicious hit on Ravens running back Alex Collins Cheap Ian Thomas Jersey , jarring the ball loose. Defensive tackle Vernon Butler came up with the loose ball at the Ravens 12 after Luke Kuechly unsuccessfully tried to scoop and score. Three plays later, Newton found Olsen on a slant route giving Carolina a 14-7 lead it would never relinquish."Sometimes you're unblocked and you have to make a play," Love said.FLACCO: GOT BUTTS KICKEDBaltimore's Joe Flacco finished 22 of 39 for 192 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, and said the Panthers were more physical and simply played better."We got our butts kicked today," Flacco said.The loss was the second straight for the Ravens."There is obviously a bigger threat to let this stuff affect you mentally and how we are jelling together, so we have to combat that by being ourselves and being as tough as we can," Flacco said.GETTING HIS KICKSPanthers kicker Graham Gano extended his streak to 39 consecutive field goals made at home — and 28 straight overall — after connecting from 54, 44 and 30 yards.GAMBLING HARBAUGHHow many coaches have the guts to make this call? Leading 7-0 in the first quarter at Carolina, Ravens coach John Harbaugh went for a fake punt from his own 10-yard line on a fourth-and-1 — and Baltimore appeared to pick it up easily with Anthony Levine plowing ahead for an 8-yard gain. However, the Ravens were called for an illegal shift on the play, wiping out the first down, and they wound up punting.Harbaugh also went for a first down on fourth-and-1 from his own 34 and got it on a Flacco sneak.STEALING THREEThe Panthers used their own brand of trickery to steal three points just before halftime.Facing a fourth-and-7 at the Baltimore 44, coach Ron Rivera sent in backup QB Taylor Heinicke to throw an apparent Hail Mary with Newton's shoulder still sore from last week's game. But after the Ravens defense backed off, Heinicke saw Olsen alone lined up to the left side and he hauled in a 13-yard pass and ducked out of bounds with 2 seconds left. Gano came on to boot a 54-yard field goal to give Carolina momentum heading into the second half.NATIONAL ANTHEMPanthers safety Eric Reid continued to protest against social and racial injustice by kneeling before the national anthem. Also, several fans took a knee during the national anthem outside of the stadium in support of Reid's cause.INJURIESRavens starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley was helped off the field in the third quarter with a knee injury Mike Adams Jersey , but did return. The Panthers reported no injuries.UP NEXTRavens: Host Pittsburgh next Sunday.Panthers: Host Tampa Bay next Sunday.The Panthers need to see more from Kevon Seymour If the TV show Weakest Link was still on the air then Kevon Seymour would be one of next week’s contestants. The Buffalo Bills successfully targeted Carolina’s third-year corner back early and often in the Panthers first preseason game. This is concerning. Seymour is currently listed as a starter on the Panthers depth chart and the team will likely be heavily relying on him this season. Consider the quality of quarterbacks the Panthers will be facing this year: It includes six Super Bowl-winners (Eli Manning, Carson Wentz/Nick Foles, Joe Flacco, Ben Roethlisberger, Russell Wilson, and Drew Brees twice.), 2016 NFL MVP Matt Ryan (twice), 2016 Rookie of the Year Dak Prescott, and Matthew Stafford who trails only Drew Brees in passing yards since 2011. With those caliber of quarterbacks squaring off against the Panthers secondary, the play of Kevon Seymour and Carolina’s corners has the potential to derail the entire season. Based on what we saw from Kevon against Buffalo, we are justified in being concerned. On the Bills first play from scrimmage, Seymour broke too early on a pass and was flagged for a 12-yard pass interference. On Buffalo’s second play Nathan Peterman hit Andre Holmes on a quick comeback route where Seymour was giving Holmes a large cushion. Holmes caught the ball five yards past the line of scrimmage, eluded Seymour’s arm tackle, and picked up 10 yards on the play. Buffalo’s third play was another comeback against another generous Seymour cushion, this time to Kelvin Benjamin for an 11-yard gain. Three plays from scrimmage … ten-jersey , 33 yards, all against Kevon Seymour. Later in the drive the Bills faced 2nd-and-7 from the Carolina 30. Rod Streater was split wide left with Seymour in press coverage. Streater ran a streak and Seymour covered him fairly well, but Streater pushed off before hauling in a touchdown. Offensive pass interference was rightfully called on the play to negate the score, but once again the Bills targeted Seymour. Then two plays later, on 3rd-and-4 from the Carolina 28, Buffalo split Kelvin Bejnamin wide left against Seymour who was in press coverage. Seymour tried to jam KB, stumbled, and let the beefy receiver eat his lunch for a 28-yard score. While the first series was rough, the worst play came in the fourth quarter. With Buffalo facing a 3rd-and-22, Seymour understandably gave a huge cushion to rookie receiver Robert Foster. Foster ran a simple streak and somehow managed to get two steps behind Seymour. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen showed off his huge arm by launching a bomb to Foster. Fortunately for the Panthers the pass was overthrown by about two feet. If Allen would have just taken a tiny bit off the throw it would have been a 62-yard touchdown with Foster leaving Seymour in the dust. How a starting corner gets beat on a streak on 3rd-and-22 is beyond me. While this is only the first preseason game, it definitely wasn’t reassuring. With Ross Cockrell on injured reserve and rookie Donte Jackson learning on the fly, Carolina needs Kevon Seymour to take a huge leap forward this year. That didn’t happen against the Bills. If a defense is only as strong as its weakest link then the Panthers secondary might be in serious trouble.
