Newton, run game and defense have Panthers thinking playoffs

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) A re-energized Cam Newton, a suddenly improving running game and the league's No. 1-ranked defense have the Carolina Panthers thinking about a return to the playoffs for the fourth time in five years under coach Ron Rivera.

The Panthers enter the bye weekend having won three straight, leaving them at 7-3 and a half-game behind the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South.

Newton said before the team's 45-21 blowout win over the Miami Dolphins on Monday night that it was starting to feel like a special season. The big win left the Panthers even more confident.
