Panthers 21, Redskins 13

Angry Panthers disappoint legends

LANDOVER, Md. — So much for Cam Newton vs. Robert Griffin III. For the ticked-off visiting Panthers, it was more like Carolina vs. Sonny Jurgensen, Sam Huff and Bobby Mitchell.

Newton and the Panthers broke a five-game losing streak, topping Griffin and the penalty-prone Redskins. Newton threw for 201 yards, ran for 37 and played part of the game with a bloodied thumb.

It was "homecoming" for the Redskins, who wore 1937 throwback uniforms and welcomed back dozens of former stars. DeAngelo Williams, who had a 30-yard TD run, was so miffed about the theme that he raised the issue in a pregame speech and had the game program in his locker afterward. He said he might frame it.

"I look on there and it says 'homecoming.' And I'm thinking to myself: This is the National Football League. Are you serious? Homecoming," Williams said. "You don't say you're going to have a 'homecoming' in the National Football League. You do it in college."
