Carolina continues to trail by 11 points entering the fourth quarter. The only scoring in the second half has been two Olindo Mare field goals, as the Bengals benched starting quarterback Andy Dalton after his excellent first half.
Panther quarterback Cam Newton finished 6-of-19 for 75 yards, with one rushing touchdown and no turnovers. He has a completion percentage of 40.4 after three preseason games. Jimmy Clausen relieved Newton just before the fourth quarter began.
