Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says he feels "super" after last night's NFC Championship game. Carolina beat the Arizona Cardinals 49-15.

Newton threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more, but he says Coach Ron Rivera and his staff deserve much of the credit.

"I can say one thing, we were coached extremely well," says Newton. "We were very prepared for this game and doing the things that we were doing, it wasn't just skill. It was the preparation."

The Carolina Panthers and their fans celebrated the team's first playoff victory in nine years over the weekend.  They beat the Arizona Cardinals, 27-16, in the first round of the NFC Playoffs Saturday.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says the team had stretches of good play against the Cardinals, but they have to step up their game.

“This one was great for a lot of reasons,” Newton says. “Yet, we didn't come here just to end it.  We have to have a great week of practice.  The things we didn't do great we have to come back and get coached up and ready to go.”

In NFL action, the Carolina Panthers lost again last night, 28-to-10, to the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints' defense sacked Carolina Quarterback Cam Newton four times and forced two turnovers. Newton spent much of the night under heavy pressure playing behind an offensive line without three of its regular starters. He was limited to 151 yards passing.

After the game, Newton responded to questions about whether he was pressing, or trying to do too much.

Green Bay racked up a 21-to-0 lead in the first quarter.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says the team gave up the scoreboard early on and never got in the game.

In NFL action, it was a big night for Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen. He had been traded by the Chicago Bears in 2011, and he made them pay for it yesterday.

Olsen caught a pair of touchdown passes, as Carolina came back from a two-touchdown deficit. They won 31-to-24 over the Bears.

Olsen said he didn't play out of spite, but the victory did help ease the pain of the Panthers' last two losses.

In the NFL, the Carolina Panthers lost to the Baltimore Ravens yesterday, 38-10.

Coach Ron Rivera was vocal about his disappointment.

The Panthers' offense was weakened to begin with. Two running backs were sidelined with injuries before the game, and DeAngelo Williams injured his ankle during a rush in the first half.

Rivera said that's no excuse.

“It doesn't matter who the running back is; we've still got to block,” Rivera said. “And we're going to be looking to do some things differently and do things the right way.”
