NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Cam Newton threw for 162 yards and led scoring drives on two of his four series Saturday and the Carolina Panthers defeated the Tennessee Titans 26-16 in a preseason game.The game was delayed about 30 minutes because of lightning late in the third quarter.Newton went 8 of 12 before leaving midway through the second quarter. He opened the game by leading a 93-yard drive that included a 61-yard completion to Ted Ginn Jr.Ginn caught Newtons pass about 10 yards downfield. Antwon Blake missed a tackle as soon as the catch was made, then the 31-year-old Ginn outraced the other Titans to the end zone.Hes probably one of the fastest guys in the NFL, Newton said. Thats not a reach. He is. Of course they will (mention) his age, but this is what I say. .... I feel as if when Ted comes to Carolina, this is only team that probably used him in the receiver position the way he wants to and is supposed to.I think so much of his career hes been labeled a return specialist, and in the return game, you may have one or maybe two opportunities to prove yourself, so that leaves a lot of tread on the tires for him.This was the second straight week the Titans have allowed an opponent to score a long touchdown on its opening series.We take pride in trying to make sure we make stops and put our offense in the best situation, Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey said.To put them behind like (that) to start the game was very unacceptable for us as a defense. We pride ourselves on trying to be the No. 1 defense in the league, and to be that we cant allow things like that to happen.That opening series also featured two completions to Kelvin Benjamin, who missed the 2015 season with a torn left anterior cruciate ligament after a big rookie year. Benjamin caught a 16-yard pass on the games first play from scrimmage and had a 13-yard reception on a third-and-7.Newton also led a 49-yard drive that ended with Graham Ganos 41-yard field goal.Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota directed three series and went 9 of 10 for 104 yards with one touchdown and an interception. On his final pass, Mariota rolled right and found Harry Douglas in the right corner of the end zone for a 23-yard touchdown.Mariota is 14 of 15 through two preseason games.POSITION BATTLESPanthers: Carolinas listed first-team cornerbacks on the depth chart were rookies James Bradberry and Daryl Worley, but two other cornerbacks (Bene Benwikere and Zack Sanchez) intercepted passes Saturday. Benwikere started Saturdays game at nickel. The Panthers are retooling the cornerback position after All-Pro Josh Norman signed with the Washington Redskins and Charles Tillman retired.Titans: Wide receiver Tajae Sharpe strengthened his bid for a starting spot, as the fifth-round pick from Massachusetts had six catches for 68 yards while Mariota was in the game. He made some bigger catches today, some big catches we havent had here in a while, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. The Titans shook up their receiving group Tuesday by trading 2015 second-round pick Dorial Green-Beckham to the Philadelphia Eagles for offensive lineman Dennis Kelly.INJURY UPDATESPanthers: Tight end Greg Olsen didnt play because of back spasms. Tight end Ed Dickson also didnt play. ... Safety Travell Dixon injured his chest in the first quarter. ... Safety Trenton Robinson injured his shoulder in the first half. ... Wide receiver LaRon Byrd was being evaluated for a concussion in the second half.Titans: Cornerbacks Jason McCourty (hip flexor) and Perrish Cox (ankle), wide receiver Kendall Wright (hamstring), and outside linebackers Kevin Dodd (foot) and Aaron Wallace (ankle) didnt play.ROOKIE WATCHPanthers: The playing time earned by Bradberry, Worley and Sanchez suggests all three will have featured roles at cornerback this season. Bradberry is a second-round pick from Samford, Worley a third-rounder from West Virginia and Sanchez a fifth-round selection from Oklahoma. ... Jalen Simmons, a free agent from South Carolina State, caught a 6-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.Titans: Derrick Henry, a second-round selection from Alabama, had five carries for 31 yards. ... Third-round draft pick Kevin Byard of Middle Tennessee fumbled a punt return, though the Titans recovered. ... Alex Ellis, a free agent from Tennessee, had a 9-yard touchdown catch with 1:55 left.QUOTABLEPanthers: I think we started pretty fast, and thats what you want to do -- start fast and finish fast, too, Newton said.Titans: Weve got to do something about the first drive, Mularkey said.

Dale Hawerchuck Jersey .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play. MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Barry Brown paused during Friday nights postgame press conference when it appeared something was wrong. He stood up and tried to get rid of an oncoming charley horse.For Brown, that charley horse was well earned.Brown had 11 of his 18 points in the first half, and Kansas State opened the season with an 82-55 win over Western Illinois on Friday night.The thing I like is that he was very efficient, head coach Bruce Weber said about Brown.Going 7 for 11, six rebounds, three assists ... there were some times where I thought he needed to pass the ball a little bit quicker when the offense got stagnant. Weve had a lot of guys who played well but Barrys probably been the most consistent day in and day out.After a slow start by both teams, Browns offense got the Wildcats going first and they relinquished the lead only once in the first half. At one point, Brown had as many points as Western Illinois with at 11 apiece.Xavier Sneed and Wesley Iwundu added 17 points each for Kansas State while Garret Covington was the high man for Western Illinois with 17 points as well.Wasnt too nervous before the game, said Sneed who was in his college debut. Had a couple of butterflies. I think Ill be clear of them by the next game.Despite struggling from the field for a majority of the contest, the Wildcats led bby no less than eight in the second half.dddddddddddd. Kamau Stokes chipped in 11.Western Illinois struggled to be consistent from the field shooting 36.5 percent for the ballgame.STAT OF THE NIGHTAfter shooting 32 percent in the first half, the Wildcats shot 62.5 percent from the floor in the second, including 7 for 7 from the 3-point line.INJURIESKansas State forward Dante Williams was missing from Friday nights contest as he was going through the concussion protocol. Coach Weber is not sure he will be ready for Tuesdays contest against Omaha.BIG PICTUREWestern Illinois: The Leathernecks only one player other than Covington in double figures on the night as Dalan Ancrum scored 12 points.Kansas State: The win by Kansas State gives head coach Bruce Weber his 17th season-opening victory in his 19-year coaching career and the programs third straight since 2014.UP NEXTWestern Illinois: Two games await the Leathernecks at home against Oak Hills Christian and Southeast Missouri State before heading on the road to face Eastern Illinois.Kansas State: The Wildcats will host Omaha for the second game in a five-game home stand to start the season before going to the Barclays Center Classic.
