Cam Newton and Panthers hammer Dolphins on MNF

Cam Newton and Panthers hammer Dolphins on MNF

Miami was never able to make the game competitive after that point.

The 45 points allowed was a season-worst for the Dolphins, who allowed Baltimore 40 points just three games ago. Now the Dolphins' playoff hopes aren't looking strong in a weakened AFC. The Panthers finished with a whopping 548 yards of total offense.

Veteran running back Jonathan Stewart bounced back from his two-fumble game against Atlanta to rush for 110 yards, his first 100-yard game since a Monday night win at Washington last December. He entered this game with eight touchdowns and one interception on the league's biggest stage. Adding another 95 yards on the ground, including a 69-yard dash, helped Cam pass Hall-of-Famer Dan Marino for the third-most yards accumulated by a quarterback in his first seven seasons. It wasn't immediately clear whether Cutler or the receivers were at fault the majority of the time, but it didn't matter.

Running backs Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake, who combined for 165 yards from scrimmage last week, were non-factors despite their 131 combined yards from scrimmage _ 30 yards receiving and 101 yards rushing.

Stay on top of breaking news stories with the ABC11 News App Devin Funchess made 5 receptions for 92 yards and two scores to help the Panthers (7-3) keep pace with the NFC South division-leading New Orleans Saints (7-2). However, that momentum didn't carry over as Cutler had a vintage "Jay Cutler moment" with an overaggressive and unnecessary interception to Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly with 41 seconds left in the first half that took all the energy out of the Dolphins. After almost throwing a bad interception early in the game, the Panthers rattled off multiple scoring drives.

The Panthers converted on Newton's 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Ed Dickson at the 19-second mark.

Then came the game-clincher, a 12-yard dash by running back Cameron Artis-Payne with 7:15 remaining in the third quarter that gave the Panthers a 31-7 lead.
