INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â€” Carolina finally found a venue where it could win on the road â€” Indianapolis.
Cam Newton threw for 208 yards and ran for one touchdown Sunday, while DeAngelo Williams scored twice to help the Panthers hold off the winless Colts 27-19 for their first road victory in nearly two years. Carolina had lost 12 consecutive road games since beating the Giants in New York on Dec. 27, 2009.
