Do the Panthers have any chance of beating Patriots on the road?

Carolina quarterback Cam Newton dives for a touchdown past New England safety Duron Harmon during the second half of the Panthers 33-30 win over the Patriots on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough Mass

Instead, it was a step backward for Newton, who failed to throw a touchdown pass for the second straight week and threw three interceptions, two when he wasn't pressured.

That means Buffalo nickel Shaq Thompson will have his hands full, as will Kuechly and Thomas Davis. If you are exhausted of losing by the five to 10 points that Newton should have gotten you, take the plunge, put him on your bench and do something about it. "He's made the ultimate sacrifice [as a player] and I respect that wholeheartedly".

"Cam's one of the great players in the league and they got a great defense", Brady said.

Though Newton doesn't look himself, having some of his favourite targets go down isn't helping.

"It's amusing because something (head athletic trainer) Ryan Vermillion thought of was, 'Wow, you had a non-contact injury a couple of years, and then here there's a contact injury where you get bent over, and you're fortunate to have nothing as far as structural damage, '" Rivera said.

Nothing would erase all the bad memories from last week like a victory over everyone's most hated team. As far as that goes, the 23-year-old receiver has received plenty of it from head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. But even in victory one lesson he learned from 2013 was that they "left too much time on the clock for Tom Brady". I don't care how good a shape Brady is in, he can't take that kind of punishment week in and week out, especially at 40.

Jourdan: I think that this is a vulnerable Patriots team. I know in the preseason I picked Brady to have a down season and he started out with a bad performance against the Chiefs. New England didn't have a turnover. "You have to know where he is at all times". The two connected for a game-winning score against the Texans last week.

Cam Newton appeared to make a political display after scoring a touchdown in the Carolina Panthers' game at the New England Patriots on Sunday. He hit a wide-open Kelvin Benjamin for 43 yards.

To combat that, Rowe said, a cornerback has to be ready to play physically - which isn't easy, given the restrictions upon contact by a defender after the first five yards. If there is any game for the defense to turn it around, it will be this week.

Rivera says doctors told him the MRI "came back pretty good, and they're going to see how his treatment goes".

Carolina's injuries are piling up and remain a serious concern for the team right now, so back the Pats to win big and cover at online sports betting sites.

The Blue Devils (4-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won their first four games for only the sixth time since 1960.

Hightower played about half of the Patriots' defensive snaps against the Panthers.

Panthers defensive end Zach Moore played for the Patriots in 2014.

Patriots guard Joe Thuney played collegiately for North Carolina State.
