October 23, 2011

The Carolina Panthers shook a three-game losing streak, defeating the Washington Redskins at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday, 33-20.

Rookie quarterback Cam Newton completed 18-of-23 passes for 256 yards and a touchdown, while rushing 10 times for 59 yards and another score.

Carolina (2-5) took a 9-6 halftime lead behind three Olindo Mare field goals before exploding in the second half for 24 points.

Among the scores were Newton's 16-yard scamper, a 2-yard run by Jonathan Stewart and a 2-yard touchdown pass from Newton to receiver Brandon Lafell. Stewart finished the game with a team-high 68 yards on 14 carries.

The Panthers welcome Minnesota next Sunday in Charlotte for a non-divisional game before taking a bye week.
