Cam Newton's return to Carolina had everything — except a win

After throwing his first touchdown of the afternoon Sunday and watching the pass's recipient, DJ Moore, hand the ball to a fan in the stands, Cam Newton took off running.

As he did, he made the universal hand gesture for "I love you" with his left hand at the home crowd at Bank of America Stadium. He was back in Panthers' black, back in the city he'd called home for nine years, back in front of the fans who were likely pining for him once Sam Darnold cooled significantly after a strong start.
