New England is going to be an 8-8 team, as harsh as that sounds, if that defense gets no better. Gilmore and Chung are two of the Patriots' better defenders. The Panthers scored a field goal in the last second of the fourth quarter and won the game 33-30. LB Julius Peppers, playing with a brace to stabilize his injured right shoulder, suffered a knee injury in the first half but came back into the game.

"This was a statement game for us", said Newton, reminding the Panthers were as much as a nine-point underdog.

The difference in why Houston lost and Carolina pulled the upset against New England? After the extra point, the score was tied up at 10-10 with 9:41 left in the half. Newton had all day to scan the field and then when he couldn't find a receiver he took off and ran when he needed. A record-setting 58-yard field goal by Patriots K Stephen Gostkowski was a yard longer than kicks made both by he and Adam Vinatieri. Yet again, Carolina answers the Patriots scoring drive with points of their own.

Brady's done just about all he can. The Panthers had two turnovers - a Jonathan Stewart fumble inside the Patriots' 10 and a Newton interception. Linebacker Elandon Roberts recovered shifting the momentum in the Patriots favor. Delhomme was 53-37 as the Panthers' starter. The Patriots had third-and-three from midfield, but couldn't come up with the stop. Amendola's score was a one-yard grab in the end zone. The defense let the team down in this contest which led to the loss.

Carolina improved to 3-1 and dropped New England, the defending Super Bowl champions, to 2-2.

This marks just the fifth time that Carolina has started 2-0 on the road.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was spotted walking into Sports Authority Field in Denver Sunday wearing a T-shirt that read, "EVERYBODY VS. TRUMP", according to KGO, a CNN affiliate.

Newton was also involved in the play that led to Graham Gano's game-winning 48-yard field goal. But against the Panthers (and every other team this season), the defensive backfield had some awful-looking breakdowns in coverage where players were left wide open.

The Patriots defense has been struggling this season, and today they played their worst game so far.

The Patriots defense officially has a problem.

During warmups, some Colts players, including quarterback Andrew Luck, wore black T-shirts with "WE WILL" on the front and "STAND FOR.EQUALITY, JUSTICE, UNITY, RESPECT, DIALOGUE, OPPORTUNITY" on the back. It starts in practice. We get nowhere separated.
