Three things that matter

Cam Newton takes blame after Panthers start season 0-2

After the Panthers fell to the Buccaneers 20-14 on Thursday, quarterback Cam Newton shouldered most of the blame. He said all fingers will be pointed at him to try and figure out how to turn around an 0-2 start. 

“We didn’t uphold our end and we’re past due. Special teams had a good return, defensively we were stout all game, but all fingers are pointing back to me specifically — and the offense,” Newton said. “It’s extremely frustrating knowing that you’re getting opportunities and you just can’t put the ball in the end zone. That’s what we have to figure out — what I have to figure out.”
