But after giving up a 52-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen and a 2-point conversion that cut the lead to 34-31, Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo intercepted a tipped pass and returned the ball to the Carolina 6.
Cam Newton rushed for 70 yards and threw for 137 yards in an all-round performance from the Panthers quarterback as Devin Funchess also found the end-zone.
Carolina quarterback Cam Newton ran 62 yards on second down to take the ball to the Minnesota 8-yard line to set up the winning score. Panther turned Viking turned Panther Captain Munnerlyn figures to play a key role from the slot, especially with linebacker Shaq Thompson being ruled out with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

Yates replaced Savage in the game and led touchdown drives on his first two possessions. Next up for Garoppolo are the Houston Texans , who have lost their past two games.
Running back Jonathan Stewart ran in a hat-trick of touchdowns for 103 yards, which included a 60-yard score in the first quarter, to help the Panthers go level with the New Orleans Saints at the top of NFC South with a record of 9-4. Carolina was about to win this one easily when Minnesota made things interesting late. With Newton struggling against pressure and Mike Zimmer having some of the best pressure calls in the league this game should be comfortable by the time the fourth quarter comes around. Keenum was sacked six times and while a normally strong run game finished with 100 yards, 40 of those came from Keenum scrambling out of the pocket and improvising. "When you're playing a team like this, as far as how they disguise, how fast they play, how they rally to the football, you just have to make sure that you're on your "A" game and firing on all cylinders".
He shrugged afterward that the offense made it more hard on itself than they should have, as it let a 24-13 lead get away in the fourth quarter. "He did what he does to keep his team in the game".
The Vikings lost 3 yards, settling for Kai Forbath's tying 27-yard field goal. But on Minnesota's third to last offensive drive of the game, the Adam Thielen that the team had become used to in 2017 stepped up to the plate once again.

No NFL team has played on its home field in a Super Bowl before, although the possibility exists every year because of the way the NFL puts its biggest game at neutral sites. "I was injured", Kalil said, via the team's official website. "You've got to have some thick skin to play that position because week in and week out you play against the best of your best".
Case Keenum wanted to move the ball down the field to force overtime. The pass was broken up and two plays later, and a potential 28-24 lead was instead tied 24-24. The Minnesota defense was hungry to change those numbers, and they did, only it was the Panthers with two big turnovers of Keenum (pick and a fumble) that lead to 10 1st half points-and a third one in the fourth (another pick that Diggs assisted on).
