Rivera thinks Newton has seen his mechanics slip

A year after winning NFL MVP, Cam Newton is struggling mightily, and lots of people are trying to figure out why. One factor, according to coach Ron Rivera, is mechanics and footwork.

Ron Rivera: Gut is to ‘err on the side of caution’ with Kuechly

Luke Kuechly was cleared to play on Monday night after passing the NFL’s concussion protocol, yet the Carolina Panthers linebacker was held out of the game. It was the smart move, as Kuechly’s concussion suffered in Week 11 was obviously a big one — his second such injury in two years. Going forward, with two games left to play, it sure sounds like head coach Ron Rivera plans...

Jay Gruden acknowledges he was outcoached by Ron Rivera

The Carolina Panthers surrendered two sacks in Sunday’s 35-32 loss to the Oakland Raiders, including a fourth-down strip-sack at the end of the game to seal the loss. That makes 27 sacks on Cam Newton this season, and only four quarterbacks in the league have been sacked more.
