The Carolina Panthers beat the New England Patriots on Monday night, in a game that had a controversial ending. On more than one occasion quarterback Cam Newton kept the Panthers drive alive by making plays with his feet and extending the play.

“You kind of shake your head because it’s nothing you did as a play caller and you’re just happy he’s on your side doing it,” offensive coordinator Mike Shula told the Charlotte Observer.

The win gave the Panthers their sixth win in a row. Newton said he isn’t focusing on a streak, just the end of the season and winning.

“I don’t want to keep looking back at the winning streak or keep count of the winning streak, all I want to worry about is keep winning, and putting ourselves in position that we can flourish at the end of the regular season,” Newton said. “And that’s what it’s all about. It’s not about counting winning streaks or having a signature win. The key word right there is the last word: win. Whether it’s a signature win, a close win or a blowout, a win is a win.”
