(PHILADELPHIA) — Cam Newton accounted for four touchdowns in a matchup of dissapointing teams as the Carolina Panthers got past the Philadelphia Eagles 30-22 on Monday night at Lincoln Financial Field.
Netwon finished with 306 yards and two passing touchdowns. He also ran for two scores, the last of which put the game away in the fourth quarter. “I think my best game is still to come,” Newton said. “I’m still focused on getting better each and every week.”
The Panthers (3-8) forced the Eagles into three turnovers while picking up their second road win of the year.
For the Eagles (3-8), it was their seventh straight defeat but they got 178 rushing yards from Bryce Brown, a club rookie record. However, Brown did fumble twice.
“The most important thing for me was for us to get the win and that didn’t happen tonight,” Brown said. “I felt like a lot of that had to do with my two turnovers. It really, really cost us.”
