CHARLOTTE – After enjoying tremendous support from Panther fans who travelled to Jacksonville for the season opener, quarterback Cam Newton can't wait for the home opener against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
"I am, I am," Newton said when asked if he's excited for the first game at Bank of America Stadium. "If we get half of what we got in Jacksonville – man, the stadium is going to be rocking. I'm excited to put a great product out for the fans.
"I say it each and every year. We are past due for greatness to approach the Carolinas. We have so much faithfulness with our fans and people who rep Carolina Panthers football. We are in it together."
