    Ryan Longwell hit a 31-yard field goal with under three minutes to play while Olindo Mare missed a 31-yarder with 26 seconds left as Minnesota escaped with a 24-21 win over Carolina on Sunday. Christian Ponder was 18-of-28 for 236 yards and a touchdown while Adrian Peterson totaled 162 yards with a rushing and receiving TD for the Vikings (2-6), who snapped a two-game losing streak. "This was a great team win against a great opponent," said Ponder. "The defense came up with stops when we needed them to and everyone pitched in on that last drive. This was a good game all around." Cam Newton had three touchdown passes and went 22-for-35 with 290 yards, adding 53 yards on six rushes for the Panthers (2-6), who were coming off a win against Washington last Sunday. "Too many turnovers and too many penalties when we didn't need them," said Carolina head coach Ron Rivera. "We're too young of a team to overcome adversity like that and give Minnesota credit, they took advantage of our mistakes."

    Cam Newton, wow. Carolina is going to be scary when they add more pieces/weapons.

    Cam Newton is going to be an elite QB sooner than later, and this seems to be shocking just about everyone...damn good player.

    Carolina has some decent weapons. They need a 2 receiver and what else? Smith, Olsen, Shockey, Stewart, Williams...they need to get a run game going...


    How can they not have a running game with Stewart and Williams?
