Newton's game-winning touchdown pass came from just a yard out and was the third touchdown of the fourth quarter for the Panthers, who trailed, 17-0, entering the final 15 minutes. Newton also found Devin Funchess for an 18-yard score, while Curtis Samuel scored on a 14-yard run to help the rally. On defense, Wes Horton sacked Carson Wentz to force a fumble on fourth down to seal the victory.
The Panthers' win marks the largest comeback in franchise history, although, it nearly went away after they took the lead, as James Bradberry was called for a pass interference call against Alshon Jeffery. That put the ball at the Panthers' 22-yard line, as Wentz's fumble took place on the 14-yard line. Wentz did have touchdown passes to Jeffery and Dallas Goedert, as they built a 17-0 lead by the third quarter. Zach Ertz had nine catches for 138 yards to lead the Eagles.
For the Panthers, Newton finished at 25-of-39 throwing for 269 yards and did not turn the ball over, while also adding 49 yards on the ground. The road win is the first of the season for Carolina, who dropped the Eagles to 2-2 at home and 3-4 overall, putting them in third place in the NFC East.
The Eagles will look to get back to .500 in London next week when they battle the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars. The Panthers will return home to host a very tough Baltimore Ravens team.
