Kyler Murray isn’t playing for the Cardinals again today. Colt McCoy led the Cardinals to victory last week against the 49ers, but it has not started off as well against the Panthers.

Haason Reddick, who spent the past four seasons in Arizona, had a strip-sack of McCoy on the opening possession. Morgan Fox recovered for the Panthers at the Arizona 18.

P.J. Walker, starting for injured quarterback Sam Darnold, led the Panthers to the 2 on four plays. Cam Newton, signed this week after Darnold’s diagnosis, replaced Walker on second-and-goal.

Newton rolled right and dove over Isaiah Simmons into the end zone for a touchdown. He and the Panthers went crazy, yelling, “I’m back.”

Officials flagged Newton for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Newton has more touchdown runs than any other quarterback in NFL history with 71.

The Panthers have a 7-0 lead with 11:12 remaining in the first quarter.

  1. Cam Newton: comeback player of the year. Can you come back from sucking or just from injury?

    Did Cam Newton look slow getting to the end zone looked like slow motion.

    No, he did not look slow — he looked very very slow.

    But, he got into the endzone.

    So far today, Cam = 2 plays, 2 TDs

  3. Cam is back, and of course that means the “back in my day they just handed the ball to the ref after a score” critics are back, trying to take the fun out of the game.

  4. Anyone see his obnoxious “I am back!” screaming? What a pathetic, self absorbed loser.

    Always wants it to be about him.

    What a blunder by Carolina to enable that in their locker room.

    I can’t help but chuckle whenever someone writes with a straight face about “taking the fun out of the game” with regard to childish celebrations.
    This isn’t junior high or Pop Warner. I remember when men played football because PLAYING FOOTBALL was FUN! They highly enjoyed just playing the game. They didn’t need to act like immature imbeciles after accomplishing even the simplest of feats to have a good time.
