Newton's 4 TDs lift Panthers over Bengals 31-21

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers coach Ron Rivera wanted a little something more from his offense, which is why he turned to his old boss Norv Turner as the team's new coordinator this season.

Rivera, who once coached under Turner in San Diego, said he got exactly what he was hoping for Sunday.

Cam Newton threw for two touchdowns and ran for two others , Christian McCaffrey racked up a career-high 184 yards rushing and Carolina handed the Cincinnati Bengals their first loss of the season 31-21 behind a well-balanced offensive attack.
