Instant analysis of Packers' season-ending loss to Panthers

18 December 2017

The on third-and-5, Newton hit McCaffrey on a wheel route out of the backfield for 20 yards to the Green Bay 24.

The Panthers quarterback threw for four touchdowns as part of a stellar afternoon that saw him lead Carolina to a 31-24 win over the returning Rodgers and his Packers. He tossed three unnecessary interceptions after having thrown just three in his previous six games, and now the Packers may be sitting at home in January for the first time in nine years.

Ex-wife of National Basketball Association star Lorenzen Wright charged with his murder
Lorenzen Wright's mother says she believes Sherra Wright killed her son for money, including a $1 million life insurance policy. Wright's body was found in suburban Memphis on July 28, 2010, 10 days after the 34-year-old was reported missing.

It may have been Newton's best performance of the season, particularly with the outside noise and what was at stake in terms of the playoffs. He threw a 13-yard laser to Davante Adams that tied the game at 7-7. They are all but a lock for the playoffs, although the division title is their first priority.

Snow expected to make Friday afternoon's commute pretty nasty
Friday starts out clear and cold on Long Island, but snow moves in just before the evening commute, forecasters said. Temperatures are likely to top out in the mid-30s on Saturday and Sunday , both of which should be mostly sunny.

In fact, the Packers will be eliminated if Atlanta wins at Tampa Bay on Monday night. Green Bay led 14-10 at halftime after a 33 yard touchdown from Rodgers to Randall Cobb, but Carolina regained the lead for good on a 30 yard touchdown pass from Cam Newton to tight end Greg Olson on the opening drive of the second half. It was still a game, however, because the Panthers turned only one of Rodgers' picks into points. McCaffrey now has 73 receptions for 592 yards and five touchdowns, including a 7-yard scoring strike to open the scoring in Sunday's game. And so the Packers needed fewer interceptions and more from its generational quarterback than his 287 yards and three touchdowns, surgically repaired shoulder or not. He also contributed 58 yards rushing, second on the team behind RB Christian McCaffrey's 63 yards. But they proved on this Sunday that when it's time to take the field they can put those issues aside and play at a high level.
