Stewart giving Panthers major boost down the stretch

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Jonathan Stewart isn't buying into the notion that running backs begin to slow down after they hit age 30.

The franchise's all-time leading rusher said he's more motivated than ever - and the numbers are proving it. The former first-round pick from Oregon has stepped up his game with the playoffs approaching averaging 4.8 yards per carry with five touchdowns over the past four games.

Along with Cam Newton, who has become a bigger part of the running game as the season has progressed, the Panthers have racked up more than 200 yards in each of their last three homes games. Carolina (9-4) hopes to continue that momentum on Sunday when its hosts the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is expected to play after missing more than two months with a broken collarbone.
