CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Cam Newton knows he can learn a thing or two from Peyton Manning, beginning with his ability to win close football games.
With his swagger back after outplaying one of the NFL's bright young quarterbacks last week in Robert Griffin III, Newton faces one of the all-time great signal-callers Sunday when the Panthers host Manning and the Denver Broncos.
Manning closes out games better than anyone - something the second-year Carolina QB has struggled to do. Manning has 48 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime, most in NFL history.
Newton says Manning is ``transcending into a God of the game. ... He's a Hall of Fame quarterback and the records he's set are extraordinary.''
Still, the Panthers don't want to see Manning rally his team a 49th time.
