CHARLOTTE, N. Fred Brazil Jersey .C. -- If Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera has his way, Cam Newton wont be running as many read-option plays as he has in the past. If Jonathan Stewart runs the way he did Sunday night, Newton wont need to. Newton made a successful return following ankle surgery, Stewart ran for two touchdowns and the Panthers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 28-16 in a preseason game. Newton completed 4 of 9 passes for 65 yards and led a pair of touchdown drives before exiting late in the second quarter with Carolina (1-1) up 14-6. Stewart ran for 26 yards on four carries and made a strong case to be the Panthers goal-line back -- if not their primary ball carrier -- with scoring runs of 3 and 2 yards. Newton has been hit more than any quarterback in the NFL over the past three seasons and Rivera has said hed like to reduce the wear and tear on his franchise quarterback. "If we can run the ball effectively with the backs and not have to rely on him running we would much rather do that," Rivera said. And thats fine with Newton. "Im trying to win football games and if that is saying, Cam hand the ball off every play. Cam run the ball down the field 20 yards like a chicken with his head cut off every play. Cam drop back and throw the ball. Cam go get everybody a drink of water. ... Whatever is asked of me, I will do to try to win the football game," Newton said. Newton was rusty early. Carolinas first three possessions netted a yard and no first downs. Newton compounded the problem by overthrowing Kelvin Benjamin on a deep ball after the rookie receiver got behind the secondary. But Stewart replaced DeAngelo Williams and immediately gave the Panthers a boost with a 17-yard carry around left end. The Panthers found their rhythm after that, driving 66 and 50 yards for touchdowns on their next two possessions. "We had a slow start tonight, which is unacceptable," Newton said. "We have to stay on schedule and not waste opportunities like the shot to Benji. Kansas Citys a good football team and we didnt match their intensity early." Kansas Citys Alex Smith finished 14 of 22 for 127 yards. The Chiefs (1-1) moved the ball well early on without star running back Jamaal Charles, but were forced to settle for a pair of field goals -- one of them a 54-yarder by Ryan Succup. "We did some good things," Smith said. "We moved the ball on a stout defence. We just didnt finish, but self-inflicted things tonight." Kansas Citys search for a reliable No. 2 receiver continues. Dwayne Bowe, who will miss the first game of the regular season because of an NFL-imposed suspension, had five catches for 62 yards but none of the Chiefs other wide receivers stood out. Rookie quarterback Aaron Murrays first NFL pass was for a 43-yard touchdown strike to tight end Travis Kelce, but he later threw an interception leading to a Carolina touchdown. Newton had to shake off some early rust. He missed on five of his first six passes and was sacked for a 13-yard loss, leading to three straight three-and-outs to start the game. Carolina benefited from a 32-yard pass interference penalty on Chiefs cornerback Ron Parker that set up Stewarts first TD -- a run in which the 5-foot-10, 235-pounder bounced off a defender and bowled his way into the end zone. Newton connected on a 24-yard pass to Benjamin over the middle on Carolinas next series leading to Stewarts second score. It was an encouraging return to the field for Stewart, a former first-round draft pick who has missed 17 games the past two seasons with foot and ankle injuries. Stewart has been limited to 516 yards rushing and one touchdown the past two seasons. "Its been a while since Ive touched the end zone," said Stewart, who sat out the first preseason game because of a strained hamstring. The Panthers had a chance to extend their lead before halftime, but Benjamin lost his cool and head-butted Chiefs defensive back Chris Owens. That cost the Panthers 15 yards and took them out of field goal range. NOTES: Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway left the game with a strained hip flexor. Coach Andy Reid said Hemingway he will re-evaluated Monday. ... Rivera wasnt ready to declare Byron Bell his starting left tackle, but said he has played extremely well. ... Rivera pulled cornerback Josh Norman from the game after he started talking trash on the field in the first half. Ederson Brazil Jersey . The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the search, confirmed reports by several media outlets. The interview took place in Southern California on Monday. Philippe Coutinho Jersey .com) - Delon Wright scored 17 points and No.NAPLES, Fla. - Behind just about every green at Tiburon Golf Club was a leaderboard with more information than Stacy Lewis could digest.Julieta Granada was at the top, and she stayed there all of Saturday with a 2-under 70 to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the CME Group Tour Championship. Lewis had more reason to be rattled by the name of Lydia Ko making a run and climbing to within three shots of the lead, boosting her chances of the $1 million bonus.Only one thing was clear. Sunday was shaping up as a nail-biting end to the LPGA Tour season.Granada had control of the tournament, but just barely. The 28-year-old from Paraguay rammed in a birdie putt across the 15th green, gave it back with a three-putt bogey on the next hole and finished at 9-under 207.Granada had a one-shot lead over Morgan Pressel and Carlota Ciganda of Spain, who both made big putts on the 18th. Ciganda made an 8-foot par putt for a 71, while Pressel hit 7-iron to 5 feet for birdie and a 70. They will be in the final group, all thinking only of a $500,000 check for winning the Tour Championship.The commotion was right behind them.Sunday also concludes the Race to CME Globe, a points race with a winner-take-all bonus of $1 million, the biggest payoff in womens golf. Lewis still had the edge, but only slightly over Ko and So Yeon Ryu, with Michelle Wie very much in the running.Good thing Lewis majored in finance and accounting at Arkansas.I dont know exactly how it all works, but there are people on the leaderboard Im definitely cheering for over others, Lewis said, honest as ever. Ive been thinking about all these awards and the Race to the Globe for three, four weeks now. Unfortunately, thats not going to go away overnight.Lewis tightened her grip on the LPGA player of the year and effectively wrapped up the Vare Trophy for lowest scoring average when Inbee Park (73) faltered. Lewis hit every fairway and missed only two greens in her round of 70. It was enough to move her into a tie for 10th, and while she remains six shots out of thee lead, she still is atop the Race to CME Globe standings by a slim margin. Fernandinho Jersey. o wound up with a 68 with her birdie on the 18th. She was tied for fifth, three shots behind and tied with Ryu, who had her third straight 70. Ko would only have to win the Tour Championship to capture the $1 million bonus. Ryu and Wie would need some help.All of it will be settled over 18 holes on Sunday, and theres even a chance for a playoff to decide who gets the winner-take-all bonus.I still have a chance — Im not out of it, Wie said after her up-and-down day of even-par 72. Thats all I can ask for. Im excited for the opportunity tomorrow, and well see what happens. Im just going to play as hard as I can and see what I can do.Ko, the 17-year-old rookie, made the biggest move. She is No. 3 in the standings, meaning a victory Sunday would guarantee the $1 million bonus (along with $500,000 for winning the tournament). She took on more than she intended with a 6-iron that flirted with trouble left of the 18th green. Instead, it took a hop to the right and settled 3 feet away for a birdie.I come to the press room or get asked by the media, and thats when I go, Oh, theres is $1 million on the line. When Im out there, Im trying to make as many birdies as I can, Ko said. I think thats actually keeping me a little distracted.Wie is No. 4 and Ryu is No. 5 in the standings, meaning they need to finish strong and have Ko and Lewis lose some ground to have any chance.But its all right there for any four of them on Sunday.Granada was the first instant millionaire in LPGA history when she won a winner-take-all format at the ADT Championship eight years ago, her only LPGA victory. At stake is a chance for her to go wire-to-wire for another big prize.Pressel has gone six years without a win, and thats all that matters to her. The Tour Championship is all she can win, and Pressel isnt even up to speed on anything else.Someone is going to win $1 million, and its not going to be me, Pressel said. But theres other things I can win. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Discount Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
