After Newton's interception late in the first quarter, he finished the half a flawless eight for eight with two touchdowns, with 189 yards and a 126.3 quarterback rating. If you are exhausted of losing by the five to 10 points that Newton should have gotten you, take the plunge, put him on your bench and do something about it. The running game was nonexistent against Houston and I don't think it gets any easier against the Panthers' front. "They've got a great defense".
"My hat goes off to the Colin Kaepernicks of the world", Newton told the Charlotte Observer. "You gotta break down and get him down when you have the opportunity". With the short week ahead (they're at Tampa next Thursday), and not much hype going into this game, the No. 1 concern for me isn't to fix the immediate holes on the defense - it's just to win and stay healthy.
The Patriots overcame a comeback attempt by the Texans with their own last-minute rally for a 36-33 victory. It's evident that New England's offensive line play hasn't been spectacular, despite Brady's spectacular stats.
"I didn't like Tom Brady". "I'm proclaiming that (things will get better)".
Kuechly added: "I'm sure somebody will say something to me". If you can roster a second QB, this may be the right time, but in leagues with only six bench spots, this will constitute a very hard decision.

President Hassan Rouhani said Iran would strengthen its missile capabilities without asking for any country's permission. Iranian officials have argued that the measure only applies to missiles specifically created to carry nuclear warheads.
Has scored more than 17.5 points in two games this year. He hit a wide-open Kelvin Benjamin for 43 yards.
"The time is upon us to do something to bring people closer together", Newton said. If there is any game for the defense to turn it around, it will be this week. They held New Orleans to 149 total yards on the ground and Brees threw for just 220 yards.
The Panthers are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games on fieldturf, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. Van Noy has been the Patriots' defensive signal caller with Dont'a Hightower missing the past two games.
While this game won't have a lot of impact in terms of tie breakers later on, it can go a long way towards shaping each team's season. Tom Brady and the Patriots were magical at the end of last week's game against the Houston Texans, manufacturing a 75-yard game winning touchdown drive, capped off with a sensational catch from new acquisition Brandin Cooks. So those low defensive stats aren't fooling the Panthers.
Unlike last week, when 16 Patriots kneeled and Carolina's Julius Peppers remained in the locker room during the national anthem, there were no protests during the national anthem.
