Panthers 44, Redskins 16

Newton wings it for perfect Panthers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cam Newton has never has liked being called a running quarterback.

"I have labelled myself as a pocket passer with the ability to run," Newton said.

Newton proved again he can beat teams with his arm, throwing for a career-high five touchdowns as Carolina routed Washington to remain unbeaten. The Panthers are the 16th team in the Super Bowl era (starting with the 1966 season) to start 10-0; the Patriots will join them if they beat Buffalo tonight. All that matters little to tight end Greg Olsen. "They don't give out trophies for the regular season," he said.

Carolina also forced five turnovers that led to 27 points, sacked QB Kirk Cousins five times and set a franchise record by holding the Redskins to 14 yards rushing on 12 carries. Washington's Andre Roberts had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
