NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Cam Newton completed his first 11 passes – the longest streak of his career – and undefeated Carolina shut out Tennessee in the second half of a 27-10 victory on Sunday.

The Panthers (9-0) extended their league-best winning streak to 13 games as Newton ran for a touchdown and passed for another score.

The Titans (2-7) suffered their 10th straight home loss in the first home game under interim coach Mike Mularkey.

Carolina led 14-10 at halftime. The Panthers padded the lead on Graham Gano’s field goals of 48 and 19 yards and Newton’s 2-yard touchdown run with less than 3 minutes remaining.

Rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota and the Titans were held scoreless in the second half.
