Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's pregame cleats are different each week with the focus being on something special about that week's game. On Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, Newton's footwear was particularly on point.

America’s Team came to Charlotte and ran into a big blue and black wall.

The Carolina Panthers defense dominated Sunday’s 16-8 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Fox Sports national game of the week. The Carolina new-look offense didn’t run up big numbers but it didn’t need to on a day that the Carolina Front 7 on defense, led by linebacker Luke Kuechly, dominated play.

The game ended, fittingly, with the Panthers defense sacking Dallas QB Dak Prescott and forcing a fumble.

About the only bad news for Carolina was that tight end Greg Olsen left the game with an apparent foot injury and was in a boot. Kuechly also gave fans a scare when he appeared to get injured late in the game, but he returned.
