Monday Night Football was great last night featuring a barn burner matchup between the Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots. The Panthers were red-hot with five wins in a row and what team would be better than the New England Patriots to offer up some resistance to the streaking Panthers. The game went down to the wire, but Cam Newton prevailed over Tom Brady by throwing three touchdowns as Carolina won a close 24-20 game to extend Carolina’s winning streak to seven games.
There were a few big games in the NBA last night as well. Russell Westbrook helped lead the Thunder to a comeback from a double digit deficit against the Denver Nuggets. Westbrook dropped 30 points in the 115-113 victory. Wesley Matthews also had a solid game with 24 points, as Portland managed to win their seventh game in a row in the young NBA season. These are the Shoes That Won Last Night.
