Panthers 24, Eagles 16

Win puts Panthers at 6-0 for first time

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cam Newton took another step toward rewriting the NFL record book, and the Panthers defeated the Eagles to improve to 6-0 for the first time in franchise history.

Newton threw for a touchdown and ran for one, marking the fourth time this season he has accomplished that feat in a game and 28th time in his career — three behind Hall of Famer Steve Young for the league record.

Newton also has 37 career rushing touchdowns, tying him with the late Steve McNair for third all-time. Only Young (43) and Kordell Stewart (38) have more.

Jonathan Stewart ran for 119 yards and Mike Tolbert scored two touchdowns for Carolina, which has won a franchise-record 10 straight regular-season games dating to last season.

Eagles left tackle Jason Peters left with what was described as lower back spasms. The seven-time Pro Bowl selection was blocking Jared Allen when he crumpled to the grass with 5:21 left in the opening quarter.
