This could be make-or-break game for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton

"Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said Wednesday that he's "absolutely" taking time to consider a protest this week, when his team plays Sunday at New England".

A pair of convincing victories in succession have only fortified the belief that the Titans (2-1) are poised to ascend to the throne in their division.

Carolina Panthers rookie running back Christian McCaffrey has nearly scored a regular-season touchdown. This will make Bill Belichick extremely happy. Tom Brady threw for 378 passing yards, increasing his league high total to 1,092 yards on the season.

It's hard to believe but the New England Patriots are the NFL's worst defence after the first three weeks of the season. Brady followed the referee down the tunnel in a rage after the game, a Panthers win. Against the run, the Patriots are ranked 26th, allowing 130.3 yards per game. Carolina's saving grace has been its defense, which sits atop the National Football League through the first three weeks. There were also numerous reports that Newton has been injured during the last two outings. Unfortunately, progress hasn't just been slow for the three-time Pro Bowl signal-caller - it has been nonexistent. Heck, all he's done in the last two games is throw for 825 yards and eight touchdowns.

Fireworks? The Patriots were widely predicted to beat the Houston Texans easily at home last week, and that game wound up being one of the most exciting of the week. The Panthers defeated New England, 20-17, in the teams' first tilt on October 29, 1995. Three games in, he's the team's leading receiver in both yards (173) and catches (18). New England turned their first-round draft selection into a player that posted back-to-back 1,100 yard campaigns with the New Orleans Saints. A big part of the problem has been the performances of quarterback Cam Newton. Yeah, that was a tough game. Quarterback Tom Brady stood with his arms interlocked with other Patriots. Ironically, New England and Kansas City also combined for 69 points in the Chiefs' 42-27 victory in Week 1. Only Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers has compiled more passing yards and touchdown passes. The Pats are giving up a league-worst 31.7 points and 461 yards per contest. We saw in their past few matchups that teams were able to score a healthy amount of points against them.

The Panthers have a scary defensive unit, led by linebackers Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis - and defensive ends Mario Addison and Julius Peppers. However, Carolina has injuries on the offensive side of the ball, and the Panthers just saw a team that plays no defense in the Saints, and they scored just 13 points in a blowout loss. The Blue Devils beat a Big Ten opponent (Northwestern ) in Week 2 and a Big 12 opponent (Baylor ) in Week 3 before last week's win at rival North Carolina.

The Patriots are struggling to find the right combination of defenders in their back seven, which shows in their lousy statistics against the pass so far this season.
