Rodgers threw it 45 times, completing 26 for 290 yards with three touchdowns.

Needing a victory to keep pace with the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South and to stay ahead of the pack in the wild-card race, Newton turned in arguably his best performance of the season in a 31-24 victory.

Winning out seems realistic with the way the offense came to life with the reemergence of tight end Greg Olsen as a weapon and possibly the coming-out party of rookie running back Christian McCaffrey. The play was initially ruled an incompletion, but coach Ron Rivera challenged the play and officials overturned the call ruling that Byrd's backside landed inbounds and overturned the play.

It didn't help that Rodgers lost his most productive receiver in the third quarter with a concussion.

The hit happened during the third quarter of the Packers' game against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte Sunday.

Davis was visibly upset later, sitting on the bench with his head in his hands.

Davis was flagged for a 15-yard penalty.

Adams walked off the field on his own but was taken back into the locker room to be checked. It ended when Geronimo Allison, subbing for Adams after he got knocked out of the game, fumbled at the Panthers' 28-yard line to end it. The ball floated and cornerback Daryl Worley was able to get his second interception in as many weeks. That's been enough to overcome (for now) a quick start by the Panthers, who will get the ball to start the second half.

Linebacker Nick Perry injured his ankle in Sunday's game.

Panthers: Wide receiver Russell Shepard left the game in the second half with a shoulder injury and did not return. Green Bay had recovered an onside kick and was driving for the game-tying score.
