CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CBS) – Cam Newton’s Carolina resurgence continued to start the day on Sunday.
The former Patriots quarterback scored two touchdowns last week just days after he signed with the Panthers, where he spent the first nine years of his career.
On Sunday, he got the first start of his second stint with Carolina. And Newton picked up right where he left off last week.
