CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Panthers can now say they have that signature win everybody has been waiting to see: on the road, against the reigning NFC champions, in November.
Drayton Florence intercepted a pass by Colin Kaepernick in the final minute to seal a 10-9 victory Sunday to snap the San Francisco 49ers' five-game winning streak and give the Panthers their fifth straight win.
