1. Panthers 1st Qtr with 11:14 on the clock: J.Medlock 49 yd. Field Goal (8 plays -53 yards, 3:46 TOP) 0-3 Panthers
Key Play: Newton hits Olsen down the right side on a corner route for a 27 yard gain to get the Panthers in FG range. Newton led Olsen beautifully who had a good step on the LB.

Key Plays (2): On 3rd and ten LaFell runs a nice out route to the left good for 25 Yards. Newton had plenty of time and hoisted a nice pass. Three plays later Newton hits a diving Ben Hartsock for 18 yards to the 1 yard line much to the shock of everyone watching. Could Hartsock be yet another weapon for this offense?
3. Panthers 1 1:03 D.Williams 9 yd. pass from C.Newton (J.Medlock kick) (6-80, 3:55) 0-17
Key Plays (2): On a deep pass to Steve Smith the Dolphins corner gets called for interference; it was a slight foul but a foul none the less. The 39 yard penalty gave the Panthers the ball at the 10 yd line. On 2nd and 9 from the 9 Newton hits Williams on the right side and he gets in over the pylon.
4. Dolphins 2 9:36 D.Thomas 1 yd. run (D.Carpenter kick) (15-71, 6:27) 7-17

Key Plays (2 ) - P.Devlin pass short left to M.Thigpen to MIA 46 for 20 yards; P.Devlin pass short middle to C.Hogan to CAR 22 for 17 yards after LB Nixon blew the tackle before the 1st down marker
I liked the fact Newton was able to spread the ball around to 2 RBs, 2 WR and 2 TE's showing just how versatile this offense is. I thought DeAngelo Williams looked really good but on his cuts to the outside and his pass catching out of the backfield.
