Carolina's Cam Newton was stopped short of the yard to gain on fourth down, and with 3:09 the hopes for a Panthers upset faded. Two plays later Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers tossed a short pass to Jordy Nelson who raced the length of the field to score on an 84-yard strike. With that, hopes for the Panthers' first win disappeared completely - along with fans from Bank of America Stadium.
Many of those departing fans never saw Carolina engineer an eight-play, 83-yard drive. Newton scored on a four-yard run in the game's final minute, but the Panthers offense never saw the field again.
