Archer: After Thanksgiving loss, Cowboys are toast

Thursday's lopsided loss to Carolina leaves Dallas with a 3-8 record and likely without QB Tony Romo, who injured his left clavicle, the rest of the season.

Brady-Manning: What we'll miss about their classic matchup

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have played 16 times since 2001. But as Geoffrey Chaucer penned, 'All good things must come to an end.' With Manning out Sunday and his career in doubt because of injuries, here are a few things we'll miss about their matchup.


Cam Newton won't stop dancing

The Panthers QB rushed for another TD today in their win over the Cowboys. So he busted out some more dance moves.


Final: Panthers 33, Cowboys 14

  • CAR QB Newton: 16-27, 183 yards, 1 rush TD
  • CAR LB Keuchly: 7 tackles, 2 INT, 1 TD
  • DAL QB Romo: 11-21, 106 yards, 3 INT (exited with left collarbone injury)
Box score

PANTHERS 33, COWBOYS 14 (FINAL): Credit this one to the league's fourth-ranked defense that knocked Dallas quarterback Tony Romo out of the game in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and held the Cowboys to 117 yards and six points through three quarters. This unit had trouble putting a few opponents away early in the year. This was a reminder of how good they can be.

This Packers fan really loves Brett Favre

Brett Favre is joining the Ring of Honor at Lambeau Field tonight. And this fan wants everyone to know. Like. Every. One.

Panthers cornerback Josh Norman gets an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for over doing his celebration after stopping a Dez Bryant touchdown pass. He can't continue to do that because eventually it will be costly. Dallas scored on its next play today.

Jay Cutler's 5 worst games vs. Packers

The Bears QB probably isn't too thankful for tonight's game against Green Bay. After all, Cutler is 1-12 in his career against the Packers, with 23 INTs -- and a handful of "cover your eyes" moments. His worst games

You could say Panthers fan Steph Curry was pretty pumped about linebacker Luke Kuechly's interception ... (via @stephencurry30)


David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

That touchdown run by Cam Newton was dab worthy. But Newton threw a curve and did the twist to throw off all those expecting him to dab in his custom made dabbin' cleats. Related: Panthers 30. Cowboys 6.

Cam Newton rushes for another TD

The Panthers have opened up a whopping 30-6 lead over the Cowboys thanks to Cam Newton's 4-yard run late in the third quarter. It's Newton's 40th career rushing TD, second-most by a QB in the Super Bowl era. Follow live
