Cam Newton was the star performer for the Panthers in this one and it resulted in the team's second win of the season.
The Panthers once again struggled to capitalize in the red zone, but Newton was able to compensate, scoring a touchdown through the air and on the ground, en route to a 13 point victory over Washington.
It must be a relief for Newton, who was clearly growing discontent while the losses piled up on Carolina. He took it upon himself to get this team back on the right track and bounced back from a sub-par performance against the Falcons to a spectacular showing in Charlotte against the Redskins.
However, not every victory is perfect and there were some sorry performances by some of the Panthers' defensive units. Read on to find out just which units played well enough to earn a pass for the week and which earned themselves a failing grade.
