Dec. 15, 2013 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Cam Newton threw for 273 yards and a touchdown, Captain Munnerlyn had two sacks and returned an interception for a score and the Carolina Panthers defeated the New York Jets 30-20 on Sunday.
Newton was an efficient 16 of 24 passing, including a 72-yard touchdown pass to DeAngelo Williams as the Panthers bounced back from their worst loss of the season, a 31-13 defeat last Sunday to the New Orleans Saints.
Williams had 81 yards rushing and 87 yards receiving for the Panthers (10-4), who'll get another crack at the Saints next Sunday in a game that could determine the NFC South division title and who'll get a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs.
Geno Smith had a touchdown pass and one costly interception in the fourth quarter for the fading Jets (6-8). Rookie defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson ran for a TD on a goal-line play.
