The Seattle Seahawks need their tough defense to make things easier on rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. The plan worked perfectly against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.
Wilson threw the go-ahead touchdown pass to Golden Tate late in the third quarter, while the defense frustrated Newton and the Panthers throughout Sunday's 16-12 road win.
Wilson threw for a season-high 221 yards and shook off two third-quarter interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. Of course, it helped that the defense kept the Panthers (1-4) out of the end zone and harassed Newton into a career-low 141 yards passing.
''The defense hasn't had any problems this year,'' Seattle receiver Sidney Rice said. ''They played well enough for us to win all year, all five games. On the offensive end, we need to pick it up just a little bit.''
Carolina had two chances to take the lead in the final minutes Sunday only to come away empty each time.
BEST OF MAXIM
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been criticized this season for his demeanor following losses. The second-year player was called out for conducting a postgame press conference following a Week 3 loss to the Giants where he didn’t look up while answering questions. He also reportedly held up the team’s bus after a Week 4 loss because he was sulking in the locker room...
For as much promise as Cam Newton and the Panthers showed just a season ago, they've shown nothing but disappointment so far in 2012, dropping to 1-4 following today's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Once again, Cam Newton couldn't find his rhythm, completing less than 50% of his passes on the day.
The bad news is, help is not on the way.
The Panthers have their bye...
While some of you ladies might think Panthers QB Cam Newton’s suits would look best crumbled in a ball on your bedroom floor, he’s apparently decided to go in a different direction. Newton has teamed up with Belk department stores to sell his own clothing line. (Ahhh, so THAT’s what he’s been looking at on the sidelines. It clearly wasn’t defensive schemes…)MADE by...
Cam Newton’s play this year is certainly giving credence to the idea of a sophomore slump. The throw in that gif from late in the 4th quarter with a chance to get the lead virtually sums up his performances thus far this season. He hasn’t been effective in any game this year, and his attitude seems to be getting worse with each loss; perhaps expectations were too high after...
Carolina Panthers starting quarterback Cam Newton needs a hug. I just have this mental image of him sitting down in front of a baby grand piano, scooching the bench a little closer, placing his fingers upon the keys, then letting go with a long, audible sigh.A small child, eyes bright with wonder, heart bursting with love, mind overloaded with a insatiable desire for knowledge of...
From suits to sportswear to underwear, athletes across the sports spectrum have developed clothing collections. Cam Newton is the latest sportsman to foray into world of fashion design. The Caroline Panthers QB has been recognized for having a keen eye for style. Most recently he covered the September issue of GQ magazine and he’s quickly joining the ranks of the NFL’s best-dressed...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson pieced together enough on Seattle's drives into Carolina Panthers territory to make it a happy homecoming. The Seahawks won 16-12 Sunday at Bank of America Stadium, where the Panthers couldn't overcome quarterback Cam Newton's struggles. It took one touchdown for the Seahawks (3-2) to win for the first time in...
Cam Newton is not off to a great start in his second year in the NFL as starting quarterback of the Carolina Panthers. Call it a sophomore slump. Call it a fluke rookie season. Call it defenses having enough time to figure out how to plan against and stop Newton. Call it whatever you want. But Newton’s father, Cecil, says that perhaps his son is pressing, and could benefit from...
Considering the unique challenges the Carolina offense presented, Pete Carroll believes the Seattle Seahawks' defensive performance against the Panthers could be the best since he returned to the NFL as Seattle's coach in 2009.
The Seahawks leaned on their defense heavily in Sunday's 16-12 win over Carolina to make up for three turnovers early in the second half that...

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are rested and eager to resume their season.
Coaches and players reconvened Monday following a bye week that provided extra time to evaluate the team's progress through four games, focus on fundamentals in practice and make some adjustments that Greg Schiano hopes will be beneficial the final 12 weeks of the season.
The Bucs (1-3) will try to snap a...
The Seahawks are on the road again this week taking on yet another opponent they should be able to beat in the Panthers. The lynchpin of Carolina's offense is still Cam Newton, who through four weeks has been putting up similar numbers to those from his Pro Bowl rookie season. He's getting plenty of help in the ground game from DeAngelo Williams, but his only...
