Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula said that after watching a play he called break down on Monday night — only to have quarterback Cam Newton make it work by evading half the Patriots’ defense while running for 17 yards — he was perfectly happy to say that Newton can make things work even if the play Shula calls doesn’t work.

“You kind of shake your head because it’s nothing you did as a play caller and you’re just happy he’s on your side doing it,” Shula told the Charlotte Observer.
