"Riverboat" Ron Rivera decided to go for two points and the road win instead of kicking a game-tying extra point.
"They ain't getting this (expletive)," Slay said. "Plain and simple."
Added Slay: "I'm glad they went for two -- win us the game. Put it on the defense. We want it on the defense anyways. I'm glad they went for two."
Rivera insisted Gano's misses (field goal and botched PAT) didn't play into his decision go for two points at the end.
"I gotta make that play," Newton said. "I feel as if, we make that play, (I) have all confidence in our defense stopping those guys. And we get a much-needed win on the road."
"This game is such a humbling game at times, and today I was humbled," he added. "It happens."
