CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers looked like the team many predict will take a big fall in 2014 for most of the first quarter of Sunday night's 28-16 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. And then they didn't. With quarterback Cam Newton finally getting into a rhythm in his first preseason game since undergoing left ankle surgery in March, the Panthers went into halftime with a 14-6 lead when both teams played their first string. Newton didn't do anything spectacular, and missed rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin wide open early down the left sideline.via - NFL Nation
