In a game that was hyped as a battle between Panthers QB Cam Newton and Redskins QB RG3, the Carolina Panthers came out ahead with a final score of 21-13. The Panthers defense, which have held their opponents to fewer than 20 points in their last four games, played a key role in securing the win for Carolina. CB Josh Thomas made a huge play when he halted a Redskins fourth down scoring attempt at the 3-yard line. Redskins QB Robert Griffin III got sacked four times in the second half, including two by DE Charles Johnson and 1.5 by DE Greg Hardy. Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams started the scoring for Carolina when he bolted 30 yards down the sideline into the end zone. The touchdown was put up on the board after a brief discussion among the officials because one of the referees inadvertently blew a whistle midway through Williams' run.
