CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers are 1-3, their MVP quarterback has a concussion and their young secondary just allowed Matt Ryan to throw for 503 yards and four touchdowns.Yep, the NFCs best team last season is reeling.The Panthers are 1/3 for the fourth time in six seasons under coach Ron Rivera, but the two-time NFL Coach of the Year said this one feels different.I think we should be better than we are, Rivera said Monday.Carolina has won three straight NFC South titles, but is two games behind the Atlanta Falcons (3-1) one quarter of the way through the season.And now theres a chance they could be without Cam Newton for a while.Newton left Sundays 48-33 loss to the Falcons in the fourth quarter with a concussion and did not return. Rivera said Newtons status for next Monday nights home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is uncertain. The Panthers visit the New Orleans Saints in another division matchup in Week 6 before a bye week.Derek Anderson, who threw two TD passes and two interceptions against the Falcons, would start if Newton isnt cleared from the concussion protocol. Anderson was 2-0 as a starter for Carolina in 2014 with both wins coming against Tampa Bay.Rivera last spoke to Newton after the game at the Georgia Dome and said the quarterback told him, Im fine.But the coach said he hadnt spoken to Newton on Monday and that I have no idea what has come out of the meeting with the doctors.The Panthers return to practice Wednesday.Newton inexplicably slowed down nearing the goal line on a 2-point conversion run on Sunday and took a legal hit from linebacker Deion Jones.Rivera, a former NFL linebacker with the Chicago Bears, seemed to have no problem with the hit, saying If I was playing Id have taken the shot.Even before the injury, Newton wasnt playing particularly smart.He was flagged for a taunting penalty in the first quarter and finished 14 of 25 for 165 yards and a touchdown with a few overthrows.Newton has eight combined touchdowns and six turnovers so far this season. At this point last season, Newton had nine combined TDs and three turnovers -- and the Panthers were on their way to a 14-0 start and a trip to the Super Bowl. His QB rating (80.2) is at a career low and hes only completing 57.9 percent of his passes.The offensive line, which was missing left tackle Michael Oher (concussion) on Sunday, has allowed 13 sacks against Newton, considered to be one of the more mobile quarterbacks in the league.Rivera said the team needs to learn how to better utilize the options they have on offense.Theres plenty of blame to go around though.Carolinas starting defensive ends Charles Johnson and Kony Ealy have yet to get a sack, and its young secondary allowed Julio Jones to pile up 300 yards receiving -- the fourth-most in the Super Bowl era.The Panthers removed the $13.9 million franchise tag from All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman in the offseason and turned to three rookies to help replace him, including starter James Bradberry. That appears to be a huge mistake for a team well under the NFL salary cap.Bradberry was outmatched when lined up against Jones, allowing three completions for 51 yards on Atlantas first possession before leaving for about two quarters with a toe injury.When asked about the Panthers problems in the secondary on the Dan LeBatard Show, Norman responded, You get what you pay for.Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, whose defense had finished in the top 10 in the league the past four seasons, said he expected some growing pains from his young secondary.I would be naive to think that wouldnt have been the case, McDermott said. ... Theres a lot of communication that goes on there, but that is the challenge that goes on as a coach.Still, the Panthers arent used to giving up 597 yards in a game.When asked if he thinks Norman might have made a difference, McDermott said. I havent thought about Josh on our defense since the minute he left. That is how you have to do your job. We have new players in those positions and I have a tremendous amount of confidence in those players and I expect them to do the job at a high level.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Air Max 200 Mens .com) - Yankee Stadium is the home of the Bronx Bombers, but on Sunday afternoon it will open its gates to host the latest addition of the Hudson River Rivalry.

The fall portion of the 2016-17 PGA Tour concludes this weekend with the RSM Classic at Sea Island Resort in St. Simons Island, Ga.And although more than 25 fully exempt PGA Tour players in the field either live nearby or consider the Sea Island Golf Performance Center as their base, its anything but a certainty that the title will be won by a hometown favorite.The event, which was founded in 2010 and formerly called the McGladrey Classic, is famously hosted by PGA Tour player Davis Love III, one of many Tour players among the areas residents.Love is faced with myriad of responsibilities and challenges before and during tournament week. On top of his tournament host duties, Love also competes in the event and said that when its time to tee it up he simply wants to go play.Its worth all the hard work to get to do what I go do, Love III said. I want to continue to see how good I can get. World No. 1 is probably not realistic at (52) years old, but staying out on the PGA Tour until you are 60 and trying to win more golf tournaments is a fun goal.Three of the previous four champions of this event claimed their first title here, including Kevin Kisner, who won by six shots last year while setting 54- and 72-hole scoring records.Kisner validated a year of near misses in with a dominating victory, shooting 12-under par on the weekend to cruise to the win over distant runner-up Kevin Chappell.Kisners six-stroke victory in 2015 is the largest in tournament history. Until 2015, all five previous editions in the RSMs short history had been decided by no more than one shot.It was one of those weeks when everything was going my way, and you have to remember those because they dont happen very often, Kisner said.Kisner temporarily relocated to St. Simons Island while his Aiken, S.C., house was being renovated.Two of the tournaments six champions have been part-timers -- Kisner and Chris Kirk (2014). But with all the big names that call St. Simons Island home, the RSM Classiic still is looking for its first true hometown winner.dddddddddddd.The closest a fulltime resident has come was Loves tie for fourth in 2012.Eleven players in the field seeking their first win have at least one runner-up finish since the beginning of the 2015-16 season.Other Golden Isles residents in the field this week are Matt Kuchar, Zach Johnson, Harris English, Brian Harman, Hudson Swafford, Patton Kizzire, Bobby Wyatt and Trey Mullinax.The tournament usually has a strong field because of its place on the schedule right before the holidays, the challenging courses at the resort and the measuring stick it provides players before many go on an extended break.Ten players who are ranked inside the top 30 in the FedExCup standings are in the 156-player field that will battle for the $5.7 million purse, $1.026 million of which goes to the winner.The highest ranked-players in the field in the Official World Golf Rankings are Kuchar (No. 20), Brandt Snedeker (26), Chappell (28), Jim Furyk (34), Johnson (35), Bill Haas (38) and Kisner (41).Sea Islands 7,005-yard, par-70 Seaside course will be the feature track and the site of play for the remaining field on Saturday and Sunday.Once again, entrants also will play one of the first two rounds at the revamped Plantation course.Unlike Harbour Town to the north, Sea Island was fortunate to suffer minimal damage from Hurricane Matthew. The Seaside Course withstood Mother Nature better than the Plantation and Tour officials said damage set them back only about a week in preparation.The RSM Classic is the seventh event in the PGA Tours wraparound schedule that bridges two years with 47 official events.Over the span of 43 weeks, players vie to become the FedExCup Champion. After a break, the season will resume in January with the traditional swing through Hawaii before moving to the West Coast. ' ' '
