Carolina Panthers vs. New England Patriots Preview and Prediction

Cam Newton tossed three interceptions, fumbled twice and threw for 167 yards against the worst passing defense in the league.

Linebacker Luke Kuechly had 14 tackles, including 12 solos, and Shaq Thompson had 10 tackles. 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. "I don't think I said very nice things to him", Brady recalled Wednesday. "They've got a great defense". Kawann Short and Kyle Love also landed multiple hits on Brady.

This could be a watershed moment for Newton like a 2013 win over the Patriots was. "New Opponent, new week, so now you've got to build off that".

More than 80 percent of Sports Interaction bettors expect the Patriots to cover the 8.5-point spread and 90 percent are betting the game to go over the 49-point over/under line.

"So what I do is I stay back as long as I could so I know for sure, like, 'OK, I know he's past.' Because if I drop my coverage and they throw it over my head, that's on me". Not saying that there aren't a lot of other good players that do that, but I would say, of all the guys we play or have played recently in the last couple of years, I would definitely put him - he's the hardest guy to deal with. Come tomorrow afternoon, the Patriots will be 3-1, and will begin to take a solid hold of first place in the AFC East division. "I think if you worry about getting injured or worry about getting hurt, you play slow, you don't play like yourself".

New England is also without a big weapon as their top receiver Julian Edelman was lost in the preseason to a torn ACL. First things first, they have to get back to pressuring the quarterback. The Titans aren't duty-bound to win Sunday, but a victory would help advance the narrative that they have bypassed the Texans.

'We'll be standing together': Broncos announce end of anthem demonstrations
Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said the decision was made by the team's leaders after they held a vote on the matter. The group met Wednesday to see if a consensus could be found about what the players wanted to do moving forward.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera expressed relief Monday after an MRI revealed wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin has no structural damage to his left knee.

To combat that, Rowe said, a cornerback has to be ready to play physically - which isn't easy, given the restrictions upon contact by a defender after the first five yards. He did not return to the game.

Cam Newton knocked off his early-season rust and out-dueled Tom Brady on Sunday, leading Carolina to a marquee win at New England, 33-30. They were just good enough, though. The under is 5-1-1 in the Panthers' last seven regular season games including Week 1 and Week 2 of this season.

Tom Brady will look for yet another impressive performance when the Patriots take on the Caroline Panthers this Sunday at 1:00 pm. Van Noy has been the Patriots' defensive signal caller with Dont'a Hightower missing the past two games.

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.

On the defensive side, the Patriots are much more talented than how they've been playing.
