Scott Says ...: Bests and worsts from Panthers' win over Washington
Worst defense: Washington entered the game No.1 in the NFL on third-down conversions and fairly high in a number of other categories. But the ‘Skins got shredded by the Panthers and the very efficient Newton in the second half, as Carolina scored touchdowns on its first three possessions on drives of 80, 80 and 65 yards.

That was one of the better days I’ve seen any rookie quarterback play."
