Panthers Break 5-Game Skid, Top Redskins

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Cam Newton completed 13 of 23 passes for 201 yards with a touchdown and ran eight times for 37 yards and a score as the Carolina Panthers snapped a five-game losing streak Sunday with a 21-13 win over the Washington Redskins.

The Panthers were in desperate need of a win after a series of close defeats that had players questioning whether the team had any leadership. Newton responded with one of his best games of the season, including a 19-yard touchdown pass to Steve Smith and an 82-yard completion that set up a score.

Robert Griffin III was 23 for 39 for 215 yards, ran 11 times for 53 yards and was sacked four times as the Redskins lost their third straight and fell to 3-6.

The Panthers are 2-6.
