Cam Newton's re-debut as a starter ended on a sour note, though we'd place more of the blame on a defense that allowed Taylor Heinicke to move up and down the field against them.  Penalties didn't help either, with Carolina committing seven against Washington, many in key situations. It's hard enough for the Panthers to stay in wildcard contention if they have to beat other teams; beating themselves certainly doesn't help. --  Bryan Knowles
