Cam Newton knows he can learn a thing or two from Peyton Manning, beginning with his ability to win close football games.
With his swagger back after outplaying one of the NFL's bright young quarterbacks last week in Robert Griffin III, Newton faces one of the all-time great signal-callers Sunday when the Panthers host Manning and the Denver Broncos.
Manning closes out games better than anyone - something the second-year Carolina QB has struggled to do. Manning has 48 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime, most in NFL history.
Newton says Manning is ''transcending into a God of the game. ... He's a Hall of Fame quarterback and the records he's set are extraordinary.''
Still, the Panthers don't want to see Manning rally his team a 49th time.

NO TIME TO CELEBRATE
A high school QB in North Carolina wanted to emulate his hero's touchdown dance during a game, and that celebration got him sent to the locker room early.
Want more evidence of Peyton Manning’s superior intellect and business acumen hidden beneath that awe-shucks hillbilly exterior?
@darrenrovell: A week before Colorado legalizes marijuana, Manning acquires 21 Papa John’s franchises in the state. Guy can do no wrong.
The Officials in the Carolina Panthers-Washington Redskins game should not have blown a whistle during a DeAngelo Williams 30-yard touchdown run Sunday and they also shouldn't have rewarded the Panthers with the touchdown.
An official, who thought Williams went out of bounds blew an inadvertent whistle while Williams was at the Redskins 17-yard line and on his to the endzone...
Will the Arkansas economy improve with the next Arkansas football coach hire? That might sound crazy, but Peyton Manning has apparently helped the economy in Denver.
Well at least the Bengals were competitive in this one. For a while there it didn’t look great. After the 105 yard kickoff return to start the second half you start to wonder if this team will EVER get it together. Then they reel off 14 points to take the lead. Peyton Manning and the Broncos were on the ropes! This was their chance, and they let it slip away. Also, don’t forget...
If you strictly look at records going into the matchup between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers in Week 10 of the NFL season, this looks like an incredible mismatch between a 5–3 record versus 2–6. As with many situations in football, however, the numbers don’t even begin to tell the story.Carolina has been one of the most snake bitten teams in the 2012 season, as...
Before the first NFL game kicked off in 2012 everything was sliced, diced and broken down for us by all the experts who raised questions and made predictions as well. Right now entering week 10 of the NFL season, many questions have been answered, some predictions have come true but currently, these three players not only exceeded expectations, they are leaders in their respective...
LAST WEEK: 9-4
SEASON: 85-46 (65%)
The Colts lost to the Jags already, but this seems like a much better team now. This is a game they need to win to be in the playoff hunt.
Eli Manning has had a really rough stretch, but the Bengals secondary is just what he needs to rebound. Expect some big numbers coming from this offense.
Last week: 5 (+0)
The Broncos sit at 5-3 and rank 2nd in yards per play differential and 9th in rate of sustaining drives differential with momentum on their side and they’ve done this despite one of the toughest schedules in the league thus far. From this point on, they have one of the league’s easiest schedules, with games against Tampa Bay, Carolina, San Diego...
Last week: 9 (+2)
If the playoffs were to start today, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts would travel to the Denver Broncos to play Peyton Manning, who through 8 games, has exactly the same amount of passing yards as his replacement Luck, 2404. The Colts are 4-1 in their last 5, since Chuck Pagano had to leave the team to undergo treatment for Leukemia, with that...
