Three takeaways from Panthers' win over Packers

But Green Bay's final mistake of the day-a Geronimo Allison fumble on a reception deep inside Panthers territory-won the game for Carolina. At just 7-6, many would think the Packers wouldn't stand a chance against Carolina given how Green Bay has played in recent weeks. Aaron Rodgers threw for 290 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions in the loss, his first game with three interceptions since 2009. Rodgers's mobility is a huge weapon, and him escaping the pocket and making throws like that on the run is a terrifying thought for the rest of the league.

Pressure on Aaron Rodgers from defensive tackle Kyle Love forced the Packers quarterback to lob a pass downfield off his back foot, and it was underthrown. Speaking of sitting, his hit on Adams is ideal evidence for why the National Football League needs a better system for ejecting a player after an illegal hit. Unfortunately for the Packers, Rodgers couldn't help the defense play better. Newton threw touchdowns on back-to-back drives to Greg Olsen and Damiere Byrd, but Rodgers had a pair of picks on two straight possessions. After initially ruling the pass incomplete, a replay review determined Byrd's butt cheeks touched down in bounds before his back landed out of bounds.

Byrd liked scoring his first career touchdown so much in the third quarter, he scored another one in the fourth on a 13-yard catch that put Carolina ahead 31-17.
