Cam just dropped a metaphor about the offense, sans Benjamin, that included “the Titanic still has to go”...okay...#WRAL https://t.co/s5XlQasXi2

The Carolina Panthers came up with a much-needed 20-17 victory over the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

The Panthers moved to 6-3 with the victory, and they are in second-place in the NFC South, just a half-game behind the 6-2 New Orleans Saints.

After the game, quarterback Cam Newton met the press and alluded that the Panthers had to keep battling even though they shipped out wideout Kelvin Benjamin at the trade deadline.

In saying the team had to move on despite the loss of the No. 1 receiver, he compared it to the Titanic. However, the comparison was obviously as ill-fated as the ship, because that vessel sunk to the bottom of the North Atlantic in 1912.
