Brown sets Eagles’ rookie record, but Panthers win on MNF


PHILADELPHIA (AP)   Cam Newton threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more to lead the Carolina Panthers to a 30-22 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night in a matchup of teams with the worst records in the NFC.

Former K-Stater Bryce Brown set a club rookie record with 178 yards rushing, including TD runs of 65 and 5 yards, but the Eagles (3-8) still lost their seventh straight game.  Brown, filling in for injured running back LeSean McCoy, surpassed Correll Buckhalter’s rookie mark of 134 yards rushing in his first start since his senior year at Wichita East High School in 2008.  But Brown also lost two fumbles, including one in Panthers’ territory.

Brown was the #1 national recruit out of high school and started his college career at Tennessee.  He transferred to K-State after his freshman year, and played in three games last season for the Cats before leaving the team.  Brown had three carries for 17 yards and a fumble in purple.
