CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Cam Newton says he doesn't have an issue with new offensive coordinator Mike Shula's play calling, even after being limited to a career-low 125 yards passing in the NFL season opener.
Newton believes the Panthers will make adjustments Sunday at Buffalo, saying the team "absolutely" plans to target the Bills injury-plagued secondary and take a few more shots downfield in the passing game.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera on Monday called Carolina's offensive approach too conservative in the team's 12-7 loss to Seattle.
Newton isn't panicking about the loss or the play calling, saying "whether it's 50 shots downfield, 50 slants or 50 running plays, my job is set on each and every play. I want to be part of the solution rather than the problem."
