Hixon’s Game Winner Sinks the Saints

It would just take 34 seconds for Cam Newton to bring the Panthers 65 yards in 5 plays. Cam Newton would find Domenik Hixon for the winning touchdown with less than 30 seconds to play.

Malcolm Jenkins would be just a half second late in getting to Newton, and Hixon had an easy touchdown, which would give the Panthers a playoff spot, and eventually the NFC South.
