My Prediction 

The Panthers score a touchdown on a 15 yard pass from Cam Newton to Steve Smith. The Patriots get a field goal on their next drive to make the score 7-3 going into the 2nd quarter. The 2nd quarter starts with a 10 yard touchdown run from Cam Newton. The Patriots get a touchdown on a pass to Aaron Dobson. The score going into halftime is 14-10. In the 3rd quarter the Patriots cut the lead to 1 on a field goal. But the Panthers come right back and score another touchdown on a 25 yard pass to Brandon LaFell. Neither team scores the rest of the quarter and going into the 4th quarter the score is 21-13. In the 4th quarter the Patriots score a touchdown and go for 2 but don’t get it to make the score 21-19. They get a field goal on their next drive to make it 22-21. The Panthers score a touchdown on a 7 yard run from DeAngelo Williams. They go for 2 and get it to increase their lead to 29-22. With 2 minutes left the Patriots turn the ball over on downs on the 15 yard line. The Panthers then run out the clock and hold on for the win.

Final Score

Panthers: 29
Patriots: 22
