Even an eye-catching NFL debut by running back Bryce Brown failed to halt Philadelphia's downward slide as the Carolina Panthers won 30-22 on Monday night.

Brown, a rookie who had never even started in college, lit up the Panthers for 178 yards rushing and two touchdowns but it was not enough to avoid a seventh successive Eagles defeat.

The Panthers have seen most of their losses come via late-game mishaps, but Cam Newton made sure there was no such outcome in Philadelphia.

"We wanted to get the momentum back on our side and finish," he said.

"It means a lot (doing it) on prime-time in front of America. We just have to get our confidence back and finish the season strong."

Carolina trailed 22-21 in the third before one of Philadelphia's three lost fumbles set up a go-ahead field goal by kicker Graham Gano.

Newton took over from there, capping a 60-yard drive in the fourth quarter with a two-yard running score for the winning margin.
