The Carolina Panthers had no answer for the Denver Broncos in Week 10, losing at home by a score of 36-14.
The Broncos only scored two touchdowns on offense, but a 76-yard punt return by Trindon Holliday for a touchdown and a 40-yard interception by Tony Carter for a touchdown was too much for Cam Newton and his team to overcome.
Newton threw for 241 yards and two touchdowns, but he was held to just seven yards on the ground, was intercepted twice—once for a touchdown—and fumbled the ball once, though it was recovered.
Peyton Manning passed for 301 yards with one touchdown and zero interceptions—a relatively quiet game by his recent standards, but good enough for the win on the road.
Demaryius Thomas had a monster game for the Broncos, hauling in nine catches for 135 yards even though he was knocked out of the game for a good portion of the second quarter with a scary knee injury.
Greg Olson had a banner day for fantasy owners, catching nine passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns in defeat.
The Panthers fell to 2-7 on the season and will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10, while the Broncos improved to 6-3 and will host the San Diego Chargers next Sunday.
