Panthers rally to beat 'Skins for first win

BY foxsports • October 13, 2009

Jake Delhomme got up, his shoulder pads sticking out and his chin strap bunched around his mouth. He pumped both fists and yelled, letting out a month of frustration.

His eighth interception of the season earlier in the day? Forgotten. Carolina's winless start was over, too.

Delhomme's bold bootleg run for a first down on third-and-8 and an earlier disputed call helped the Panthers rally past the Redskins 20-17 on Sunday, a day of vindication for Delhomme and more trouble for embattled Washington coach Jim Zorn.
