Cam Newton’s improbable rookie season is continuing with more records being broken.

On Sunday in Carolina’s 48-16 win over Tampa Bay, he broke Peyton Manning’s rookie record for passing yards in a season and set a franchise record with a 91-yard touchdown pass to Brandon LaFell.

The loss was the Buccaneers’ ninth straight defeat.

Manning came into the game needing 18 passing yards to break Manning’s record of 3,739 accomplished that on the Panthers’ first possession to LaFell on a 7-yard pass.

Newton threw for three touchdowns and scored himself on a 49-yard run up the middle where he outran smaller, faster defensive backs to the end zone.

Tim Brewster couldn't get it done (Minnesota photo)

Tim Brewster, who arrived in Minnesota promising high caliber football, the Rose Bowl and a Big Ten championship, has joined a long list of football coaches who haven’t been able to get the job done at the Minneapolis school.

Brewster, was fired Sunday after just 3 1/2 years on the job. He was let go one day after the Golden Gophers lost to Purdue to fall to 1-6 in his fourth season on the sidelines. Brewster went 15-30 at Minnesota, 6-21 in the Big Ten and the loss to the Boilermakers was their sixth straight defeat.

He never beat Minnesota’s chief rivals, Wisconsin and Iowa and was 0-10 in trophy games.

He will be paid $600,000 to buyout his contract.

He was hired at Minnesota as the head coach after never have been a head coach or a coordiantor in college or the NFL.

Minnesota athletic director Joel Maturi asked former star QB Tony Dungy to take over the program, but he wasn’t interested. Instead, the former Colts and Buccaneers coach will guide the search committee who want the right coach like when they hired Tubby Smith for the basketball team.

Two interceptions of Carson Palmer passes basically gave the game away.

The result was a 24-21 loss as Tampa Bay’s placekicker Connor Barth connected on a 31-yard field goal with one second remaining to win the game.

As a result, Cincinnati is sitting in a tight spot heading to the bye week with a disappointing record of 2-3.

The loss is the sixth straight to the Buccaneers by the Bengals. Speaking of the Bucs, they are 3-1 and have equalled their win total from 2009.

Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman, eventhough he just throws the ball up for grab, looked better than Carson Palmer. He was 20 of 33 for 280 yards with a TD and an interception.

After the bye week, the schedule gets tougher for Cincinnati. At Atlanta and then its the Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts.

Head Coach Marvin Lewis in his postgame press conference said, ” We have to drop the egos and get back to work. Bring your shovel and go to work. Quit worrying about who you are.”

Winslow gets revenge on Browns as Tampa Bay wins, 17-14

Kellen Winslow, Jr. spent 5 controversial seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He was supposed to be the second coming of Ozzie Newsome of the Browns glory days and a mirror image of his Hall of Fame dad, Kellen Winslow, Sr. of the San Diego Chargers. But he was either injured or not playing up to standards.

On Sunday, in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, Winslow set the tone earlier by running out the tunnel during pregame introductions and waving a Tampa Bay flag in front of the Cleveland bench. The crowd of 47,211 roared with approval as the Buccaneers went on to defeat Cleveland, 17-14.

But the real hero for the Buccaneers was their quarterback Josh Freeman, who returned from a three-week layoff due to a broken thumb and threw for 182 yards and two touchdowns. Winslow had four catches for 32 yards.

Early in the game, Cleveland moved the ball at will and built a 14-3 lead, but struggled thereafter. They had three costly turnovers which helped Tampa Bay win the game.

Jake Delhomme went 20 of 37 for 227 yards and two interceptions in his debut for Cleveland, who have not won an opening game since 2004. They have a record of 1-11 in opening games since the team returned as a new franchise in 1999.

The Browns received a 41-yard touchdown reception from Mohammed Massaquoi and a 10-yard TD run from Peyton Hills which put them up 14-3.
