The Panthers took care of Washington in impressive fashion. Cam Newton had a spectacular day, accounting for over 300 yards of total offense and two touchdowns. 

The Panthers' run game was a determining factor as well. The Panthers totaled 176 yards and two touchdowns rushing. It appears that keeping Stewart and Williams involved will be the key to future success this season. 

John Beck played admirably for Washington. His only interception was the result of a mis-communication with rookie receiver Leonard Hankerson. Otherwise, he was efficient and gave the Redskins a chance to win. 

Poor defense was the story for the 'Skins, as a porous secondary allowed Steve Smith to reel in 143 yards and multiple big plays to Jonathan Stewart, Brandon LaFell, and the aforementioned Smith. 

That wraps up our coverage for this week. Check back next time when the Panthers take on the Vikings

FINAL SCORE: CAROLINA - 33, WASHINGTON - 20
