Cam Newton Gets His First Playoff Win as the Panthers down toothless Cardinals in wild-card round

With the Arizona Cardinals' offense neutered by the shortcomings of third-string quarterback Ryan Lindley, the Carolina Panthers only had to avoid beating themselves Saturday afternoon.

They did so. Barely.

The Panthers committed three turnovers and botched a punt, which resulted in 14 points for the firepower-challenged Cardinals, but they also churned out 400 yards of offense and forced three turnovers themselves in a 27-16 wild-card round win.

"When you have three-plus turnovers -- never mind the other stats -- you can't expect to win," a relieved Cam Newton said. "We had an unbelievable performance by our defense which helped us push the rock over the winning barrier, but moving forward we have to do a better job protecting the football."
