Bengals run defense stumbles in 31-21 loss to Panthers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Cincinnati Bengals had limited their first two opponents to 141 rushing yards. That made what happened in their third game all the more surprising.

Christian McCaffrey ran for a career-best 184 yards and the Panthers piled up 230 yards on the ground and got two rushing scores from Cam Newton on Sunday in a 31-21 victory .

"This is a different style of offense and attack and you've got to adjust and morph and play it and make sure we stay sound in it and play it all the time," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. "We had moments where we played it perfectly. Then we had others where we didn't."
