Cam Newton ran the whole game, so the Panthers’ quarterback wasn’t about to stop Sunday after the Panthers clinched their first division title in five years.

After finishing a TV interview minutes after the 21-20 win against the Atlanta Falcons, Newton ran along the wall of the Georgia Dome, slapping hands with some of the thousands of Panthers’ fans who made the drive down Interstate 85.

Newton worked his way to the visitors locker room, where he was greeted by the blaring notes of “I’m a King” by T.I. and by teammates wearing black “division champions” hats.

The Charlotte City Council met Monday night behind closed doors with Panthers president Danny Morrison and owner Jerry Richardson. The team is seeking public support for renovation of their 16-year-old stadium. But, Panthers officials won’t talk about it, the mayor won’t talk about it, and (only) a limited number of staff have been let in on it.

Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera says he’s searching for answers to solving the team’s string of disappointing losses. He just isn’t finding them.

“If we were losing games by 14 points, OK, we're not good enough. But when you lose close games, you are good enough. There's something missing,” Rivera said Monday during his weekly press conference at Bank of America stadium. “There's something we have to find and we've got to get past and through those things, and we've got to make plays.”

NFL games look different today, the first Sunday in November. The color pink won't be nearly as prevalent as it was in October. In this commentary, Ryan Basen says the NFL's "A Crucial Catch" campaign for breast cancer awareness is also a manipulative image-enhancer for the league and its corporate partners.
