CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — D.J. Moore has a running joke with Curtis Samuel before every game about which of the young Panthers receivers is "going to go off" that day.
Recently it's been one or the other with a big game — and sometimes both.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — It was D.J. Moore's turn to be a young standout for the Carolina Panthers.
The Panthers' first-round draft pick from Maryland had a team-high five receptions for 90 yards and also gained 39 yards on electrifying runs on back-to-back plays, including a 28-yard dash around right end that proved to be Carolina's biggest run of the day, in a dominating 36-21 win against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers didn't wait until the fourth quarter to turn it up a notch on offense.
The result was an impressive win against the league's top-ranked defense.
Newton completed 21 of 29 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 52 yards and another score as the Panthers soundly defeated the Baltimore Ravens 36-21 on Sunday for their ninth straight win at home.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers drafted wide receiver D.J. Moore in the first round this past April because of his ability to make plays after the catch.
But Moore's gift for turning nothing into something got him into trouble last Sunday after fumbling twice — once following a reception and again on a punt return — while fighting for extra yards. The Redskins turned those two turnovers into 10 points and defeated the Panthers 23-17.
ATLANTA (AP) — D.J. Moore had a day to remember.
Both good and bad.
Carolina's first-round pick had the first catch — and touchdown — of his fledgling NFL career when he hauled in a 51-yard scoring pass from Cam Newton with just over 2 minutes remaining Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.
But, with a chance to send the game to overtime, Moore couldn't hang on.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton says he's extremely comfortable playing in new coordinator Norv Turner's scheme and is thrilled with the talent the Panthers have surrounded him with on offense.
But the eighth-year quarterback isn't going out on a limb and making predictions on what Carolina might achieve this season.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera says rookie wide receiver D.J. Moore has "chastised" after the first-round draft pick from Maryland was cited for driving approximately 113 mph in a work zone in Interstate 77 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — An optimistic Cam Newton says he's adjusting well to a new offensive scheme and boldly proclaimed it's time for the Carolina Panthers to "take back the division."
Wearing a "Change the culture" t-shirt and a "Keep Pounding" hat, an upbeat Newton was budding with enthusiasm on Saturday even after starting right tackle Daryl Williams went down with a knee injury earlier in practice.

OPEN CAMP: July 26, Wofford College, Spartanburg, South Carolina
LAST YEAR: Panthers enjoyed bounce-back season after failing to reach playoffs in 2017. Carolina lost three times to New Orleans, including wild-card playoffs. No deep threat, lengthy injury to TE Greg Olsen and poor pass protection doomed offense. Defense remained one of NFL's best behind high MLB Luke Kuechly.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers have signed wide receiver D.J. Moore, their first-round draft pick.
All eight of Carolina's draft picks are now under contract.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — General manager Marty Hurney felt he needed to upgrade team speed after the Panthers failed to win the NFC South the last two seasons.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers turned their attention to the secondary on the second day of the NFL draft — and added an extra draft pick along the way.
The Panthers selected cornerback Donte Jackson from LSU in the second round and safety Rashaan Gaulden from Tennessee in the third round Friday night, one day after taking wide receiver D.J. Moore from Maryland with the 24th overall pick in round one.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Coach Ron Rivera received a text from Cam Newton immediately after the Carolina Panthers selected Maryland wide receiver D.J. Moore in the first round of the NFL draft that read: "Thank you!"
The Panthers gave Newton more help on offense Thursday night by selecting Moore 24th overall in hopes of upgrading a passing game that finished 28th in the league last season.
Moore was the first wide receiver taken in the draft.
