Patriots defense disappoints again in 33-30 loss to Carolina

As you can see, Damiere Byrd had two defensive backs on him with former Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Butler acting the part of the intended receiver en route to picking off the pass. Cam Newton has made a habit out of forcing plays this season, and the Patriots will be looking to take full advantage of that on Sunday.

Breaking a bad habit: The Panthers have been awful in the red zone, tied for last in the league with a 25 percent touchdown success rate. Anything great - this offense isn't cereal or instant grits.

"It was all about execution", Newton said.

Folk's kick capped a nine-play, 59-yard drive, highlighted by Jameis Winston's 26-yard pass to tight end Cameron Brate, which positioned Tampa Bay at the NY 13-yard line. He got turned around several times by Devin Funchess, a player who is not known for his route-running prowess. But they have to finish off drives, particularly against a Patriots defense that gave up 301 passing yards and two touchdowns to Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson a week ago. The Panthers, however, came right back at the Patriots defense and drove into the red zone eventually leading to a field goal on their first drive as well.

Newton raised a clenched fist after scoring a touchdown, joining several other players across the National Football League in evoking Tommie Smith and John Carlos' Black Power salute as the controversial protests against racial inequality continued. We've just got to stick together, keep working hard and keep communicating. "That's what my mentality has to be". Whittaker scampered open on the opposite side and caught a short pass from Newton, and ran it in for a 28-yard touchdown. His 75.9 completion percentage was the sixth-best of his career. After a couple more first downs, the Panthers found themselves in Graham Gano's field goal range with just 4 seconds left.

Although he didn't get the President's endorsement, Roy Moore did get the endorsements of Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Iowa Rep. The two faced off in an odd-year special election runoff where turnout was low and few voters were engaged.

"That feels great", Stewart said of the rushing mark. After missing the first two games of the season with an injury, Uzomah had an 11-yard reception against the Browns for his first catch of the season.

"This was a statement game for us", Newton said. After bringing his hand down, Newton proceeded to do his infamous "Superman" celebration, and returned to the sidelines with his team.

The Patriots cut a 30-16 deficit in half on an 8-yard run by Dion Lewis with 8:46 remaining.

Now 2-2 or worse over the first four games for the sixth time during Belichick's coaching tenure, the Patriots seem to be in a rut where they absolutely have to put 30 points or more on the board to have a chance to win. "When you get the ball you have to go straight up the field".
