Newton, who also threw TD passes for Brandon LaFell and Greg Olsen, picked out Ted Ginn Jr from 25 yards with 59 seconds on the clock to secure the win for the Panthers after Stephen Gostkowski's field goal had put the Patriots 20-17 in front.

Tom Brady threw for 296 yards and a touchdown, and led the Patriots on a drive to the Carolina 18 in the dying seconds but his pass was intercepted.

Officials initially called interference but hastily picked up the penalty flag to signal the end of the game and confirm Carolina's sixth straight victory.
