Panthers Win 7th Straight By Beating Miami 20-16

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Cam Newton converted a fourth-and-10 situation at his own 20 with a completion to keep alive the Carolina Panthers' final possession, and they went on to score a touchdown with 43 seconds left and beat the Miami Dolphins 20-16 Sunday.

Newton hit Greg Olsen with a 1-yard pass for the winning score to cap a 12-play drive. It was the second comeback win in a week for the Panthers, who rallied past the New England Patriots with a late drive last Monday.

The Panthers (8-3) extended their winning streak to seven games, their longest since 2003. Miami (5-6) fell to 2-2 since tackle Jonathan Martin left the team and the Dolphins' bullying scandal began to mushroom.

Miami's Ryan Tannehill nearly connected with Mike Wallace for a 60-yard score in the final seconds.
