"I did a bad job of protecting the football," Newton said, per ESPN.com. "When you're playing a good defense, you've just got to take what they give you."
Instead, he forced a couple passes and paid the price.
"A lot of times I was overlooking the play that needed to be made, instead trying to make a bigger play," Newton said.
"I'm a big receiver, I could have worked back to the ball," Dickson said, per the Charlotte Observer. "I told Cam that, too. I said that's what we build off. We'll never be picked off on the backside of one of those again as long as I play with you."
The future looks bright in Carolina, but Saturday's turnovers were a reminder of the hurdles Newton and the Panthers still have to overcome on offense.
