Cam Newton didn't finish the Panthers' blowout loss in Miami, but he will start their next game in Carolina.

The former MVP struggled mightily Sunday, in his third appearance since rejoining the Panthers in early November. Newton completed just 5 of 21 passes with a touchdown and interception before being substituted for P.J. Walker in a 33-10 loss to the Dolphins.

Afterward, Panthers coach Matt Rhule said the decision to swap quarterbacks was driven by poor pass blocking and Walker having a better handle on the two-minute offense.

"I'm not making any changes right now," Rhule said. "At the end of the day, we weren't protecting the quarterback."
