Panthers QB Newton can't locate end zone against Bears

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- More than an hour passed before Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton finally entered a Soldier Field interview room and faced a bank of cameras Sunday afternoon.

Newton seemed as if he wanted to be anywhere else. His team had lost 17-3 against the Chicago Bears, and he had thrown two interceptions and botched a lateral play in the defeat.

"There's no excuse not to come in and find a way to win this football game," Newton said. "We squandered that opportunity, but I'm not feeling sorry for myself, nor do I expect anyone else to. Life goes on, and we just have to get ready for our next opponent."
