Panthers 33 Patriots 30

After a disappointing, dismal appearance in a week three loss to the New Orlean Saints, the Carolina Panthers seemed to get it together against the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in week four.

Film study, stout defense, and a patient offense proved to be a difference maker on Sunday. The Patriots entered the game as the worst defense in the league and likely remained the same. Offensive Coordinator Mike Shula showed balance with his play calling, 29 rushing attempts and 29 passing plays.

Quarterback Cam Newton dissected a struggling Patriot defense going 22 of 29 passing, for 316 yards, four touchdowns touchdowns (including one rushing), and one interception.

( Hey, Stewart!!)

Wide receiver Samuel Curtis has the longest rush of the season for 30 yards.  

Only one penalty for each team.  Kicker Graham Gano is 8 for 8.  He should be 9-9 (see the bad)
