Panthers down Eagles in Philadelphia

27 November 2012 06:13

Carolina Panthers won a scrap between the two worst teams in the NFL's National Football Conference on Monday, beating Philadelphia Eagles 30-22.

Star quarterback Cam Newton, the number one draft pick in 2011, led the way for the Panthers at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, throwing 306 yards for two touchdowns and running two more.

Running back Bryce Brown starred for the Eagles, setting a franchise record for a rookie of 178 yards rushing, while also making touchdown runs of 65 and five yards, but he could not get his side over the line.

Playing instead of the injured LeSean McCoy, Brown bettered the previous rookie record of 134 yards rushing set by Correll Buckhalter in 2008, but also blotted his copy book with two fumbles.

Graham Gano's field goal from 23 yards out saw Carolina hit the front at 24-22 early in the last period, and the visitors then pulled away to join fellow strugglers the Eagles with a 3-8 record for the season.
