Charlotte, New York (AP) – Carson Wintz continues to emerge away from his years in his second season.
Wintz won 222 yards and three defeats against one of the top NFL defenses, and the Philadelphia Eagles beat Carolina Panthers 28-23 Thursday night to improve to a NFC-5-1 best.
Eagles turned deep objections in the Carolina region to 15 points. Wintz and Zach have collaborated on downward permits, and Lagaret Blount scored a turning point of 2 points for a 18-10 score in the third quarter. Wintz added a 24-point lead to Nelson Agurol in the fourth quarter.
"He's a great leader in this football team, even in his second year," said Eagles coach Doug Pedersen. "Men really respect the way they play, and it's exciting to see that."
Kam Newton threw three objections against Carolina (4-2).
The first two objections came within Carolina 20, but it was not Newton's fault. Fletcher Cox was released one, and Jonathan Stewart returned another lead resulting in a choice. Newton's third objection – by Galen Mills with 3:06 left – ended the chance to get the score going forward.
Carolina got another shot to win, but turned down on midfield.
Panther coach Ron Rivera said: "It is disappointing because we have opportunities." "We can kick field goals and won good teams, we can not turn the ball and do not take away."
Mid-back Panthers put Locke Kuchley in a concussion protocol after his body crumpled after a collision with Eagles pulling the guard Brandon Brooks. Kishley missed nine games over the past two seasons with two concussions. All eagles came after Kuchley left the game late in the second quarter.
Panthers Corner Pack Captain Monerlin said it would not be easy to replace Keuchli. "Luke is a big part of what we do," he said.
Defense defender Cowan Short added: "I saw a quick prayer, but then the game must continue."
Newton gave the Panthers 10-3 lead on his career drop 51 rushing in the second quarter. The ball was kept on the reading option and the Douglas Ruckleback Jockey was run on the 16-yard range.
Douglas gets revenge on Carolina's next possession, intercepting Newton's passing after the Cox crash in Newton while he was casting, causing the ball to float high in the air.
Eagles Cox Returns: After the absence of two game due to leg injury, Fletcher Cox returned and was the dominant force of the eagles. Along with passing leaning on Newton's intercept, he also had a bag and two back wonders. "There is no way I can sit there tonight," Pederson said. "It was very important to him."
No Running Gam: If not for Newton, the Panthers do not have any straight game to speak against the Eagles. Newton ran on 71 yards and was downhill, but running Jonathan Stewart, Christian McAfee and Fawzi Whitaker was limited to 1 yard on the 13 carries.
Rivera said about the running game.
"We have a lot of things to look at.
Blount Bounds Away: bruises Blount did not find the final zone of landing, although he did not score a point of 2 points after the leopard defense jumped with the early Lutolley Star on an extra point attempt. That's what prompted Doug Pedersen to go for two years. Blount finished with 67 yards on 14 carries.
Milestone: Julius Pippers needs one bag to become the fifth player to reach 150 players since he became officially statist in 1982. The 37-year-old Bibbers did not destroy any time in reaching him, leading the game and forcing it To stutter.
Linop Chang: Panathars Cornerback Darrell Wurley was divided in the first half of Kevin Seymour.
Eagles: Lenniebacher Jordan Hicks left the game early with an ankle injury. Defensive finish Brandon Graham left briefly with a shoulder injury.
Panthers: Aside from Kuchley's injury, Whitaker was transferred to the locker room in the first quarter with a right ankle injury and no return.
