Samuel won't return due to injury for Panthers vs. Dolphins

Carolina, which was led by quarterback Cam Newton (254 passing yards, four touchdowns, 120.4 passer rating, 95 yards rushing) totaled 548 yards. The Panthers' rushing total threatened Miami's franchise record of 341 yards.

Cam Newton threw four touchdown passes and the Carolina Panthers pounded the Miami Dolphins in a 45-21 victory on Monday at Bank of America Stadium. That formula worked to perfection on Monday and is what the Panthers have been doing during their three-game winning streak.

The Panthers, who have already won more games than they did all of last season, will have a bye next week before returning to play November 26 against the Jets. However, that momentum didn't carry over, as Cutler had a vintage "Jay Cutler moment" with an overaggressive and unnecessary interception to Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly with 41 seconds left in the first half that took all the energy out of the Dolphins. That opened the floodgates as the Panthers scored touchdowns on five straight drives.

The Panthers (7-3) turned in perhaps their most complete game of the season with a balanced offense and stifling defense, albeit against the NFL's worst attack. The teams combined for three points, 106 yards, three penalties and three punts in the first quarter. Newton trails only Peyton Manning and Matt Ryan in that category.

Panthers rookie running back Christian McCaffrey scored on a run and a reception and wide receiver Devin Funchess caught two touchdown passes, the last a 32-yarder from Newton with 8:20 remaining. Center Tyler Larsen suffered a foot injury but returned to the game.

Panthers: Visit the Jets on November 26 after a bye.
