From wire reports

Cam Newton’s 62-yard run set up Jonathan Stewart’s 1-yard touchdown leap – his third TD run of the day – with 1:47 remaining to lift the Panthers to a 31-24 victory Sunday over the Minnesota Vikings.

Stewart accounted for 103 of Carolina's 216 yards rushing — including a 60-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Newton had the play of the game in the fourth quarter when he rolled out to his left, saw an opening and didn’t stop before being pulled down from behind at the Vikings 8-yard line.

Newton threw for 137 yards and a touchdown and ran for 75 yards as the Panthers (9-4) recorded their third 200-yard rushing game of the season to move into a tie with the New Orleans Saints atop the NFC South.

Carolina's defense sacked Case Keenum six times, forced three turnovers and came up with a crucial stop late to force a field goal. Daryl Worley and James Bradberry both intercepted Keenum.

The Panthers host the Packers next Sunday. Aaron Rodgers is expected to make his return at QB for the Packers.
