Rivera: Panthers RBs Williams, Stewart need more touches


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:11 am ET) Ron Rivera emphasized after the Thursday night loss to New Orleans that Panthers backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart need more touches going forward. The game marked the first time all season the pair shared the backfield.

Both carried eight times with Stewart earning 40 yards to 20 for Williams, who added a 30-yard gain on a screen pass. Rivera was unhappy with that distribution.

"It's good to have them back there," Rivera told the team website. "We are going to have to continue to find more and more chances to use them, more and more situations where we have to put the ball in their hands. They showed today that they deserve to have the ball in their hands more, and we are going to have to work on that. We have to ... take some pressure off the quarterback."

Quarterback Cam Newton did not respond well to pressure against New Orleans, completing just 10 of 28 passes.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Williams gained just 20 yards on eight carries. He and Jonathan Stewart split carries evenly, but Stewart turned in the much better performance. Williams, however, was a factor in the passing game.

Williams will look for more Week 10 against the Eagles. 


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart leads the way Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Panthers QB Cam Newton rushes one in Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Newton was constantly under pressure during the game, and was sacked four times. The offensive line let Newton down a fair amount during the contest, but he also had trouble getting the ball to Kelvin Benjamin. Benjamin was targeted a team-high 10 times, but only came down with two catches. Cornerback Keenan Lewis had a great game covering Benjamin, and that may have contributed to Newton's struggles.
