CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Cleveland Browns are limping to the finish line.The Browns (7-8) lost their fourth straight game Sunday, including their second in a row under rookie starter Johnny Manziel.Manziel was a mere 3 of 8 for 32 yards passing and ran twice for 3 yards in the 17-13 defeat to the Carolina Panthers before leaving with a hamstring injury late in the first half.Brian Hoyer wasnt much better, finishing 7 of 13 for 134 yards, the bulk of that coming on an 81-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jordan Cameron. He threw one interception and was sacked three times.The Browns had just 228 yards on offence and eight first downs.Offensively, not near good enough to win in this league, Browns coach Mike Pettine said. We made the one big play, but other than that we never really seemed to get in much of a rhythm.The Browns were officially eliminated from playoff contention Saturday when San Diego beat San Francisco. Theyve not been to the playoffs since 2002.Manziels status for next weeks season finale at Baltimore remains uncertain.He was injured when he sprinted out to his left just before halftime. Linebacker Luke Kuechly and safety Colin Jones converged on Manziel, taking him to the ground for a 1-yard loss. Manziel attempted to get up, then fell back to the ground. He remained in his uniform but did not return.Manziel said afterward he felt his hamstring tighten up earlier in the game.I kept walking more and I just felt like something that I hadnt experienced before and felt like I needed to get checked out, Manziel said.Manziel said he left the game frustrated but determined to improve in the off-season.If anything it makes me hungrier to work in this off-season and get with these guys and stay on top of this stuff. and come back next year and come out and try to have some success early in the season and sustain that through a season, Manziel said. Thats obviously a long way from now. but just the way my mindset has flipped from being a guy that you never know when you are going to get a chance to go in and trying to stay on top of your stuff to being the guy for a couple weeks. ... It hurts me and eats at me to not be out there with those guys.The Panthers (6-8-1) are talking playoffs even though they have fewer wins than the Browns (7-8).The victory sets up a winner-take-all showdown next Sunday at Atlanta between the Panthers and Falcons for the division title. It also guarantees a team without even a .500 record will win the NFC South.The winner will join the 2010 Seattle Seahawks as the only teams to reach the post-season in a non-strike-shortened season with a losing record.Now it all comes down to one game and thats all we can ask for is to be in that situation, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said.Cam Newton threw for one touchdown and ran for another just 12 days after the quarterback suffered two fractures in his lower back following an automobile accident. Jonathan Stewart ran for 122 yards and caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from Newton.The Panthers have now won three straight after going more than two months without a victory.The Panthers led most of the game before Cameron got behind the secondary to give Cleveland its first lead of the game at 13-10 with about 10 minutes remaining.But Newton, looking healthy and mobile in escaping from the pocket, drove the Panthers back downfield. He completed a 9-yard pass to Stewart, who slipped out of the backfield untouched and found an open pocket in the end zone.The effort was tremendous, Rivera said of Newton. It kind of speaks to who he is and his toughness.Newton called the last 12 days tiring, but said the whole ordeal has left him with an entirely different perspective on life.For me to come out of an accident like that, all praises go to God, Newton said. He is using me in a positive way and Im using my influence in a positive way. Im on a (pedestal), so when I do good things or bad things people are going to be affected. So I just want to use mine in a positive light to encourage the next person. That is what we are on this earth for — to make people better.NOTES: Panthers cornerback Josh Norman had an interception for Carolina, but then fumbled on the return when he held the ball with one hand and was hit from behind. ...

Carter was a scoring machine, sure, but he did it with a certain flair that endeared him to youngsters.Now, those kids are starting to come of age.Led by Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins, the past two No. 1 overall picks in the NBA draft, the Canadian pipeline has begun to gush with talent. Eight players from the nation have been picked in the first round of the draft in the past four years, a number made even more remarkable by the fact that very few players had even played in the NBA before the 1990s.You know what people up there tell me changed everything? They attribute it to Vince, Dawkins said. It inspired kids in Canada who used to play hockey to play basketball. More kids means more growth for the game, and youre seeing that spill into higher levels of the NCAA.Bennett was among those kids who grew up watching Carter with awe-struck admiration.The young Timberwolves forward learned the game around the Jane and Finch Boys and Girls Club in Toronto, and every once in a while the club would take field trips to Raptors games.Thats when we seen him doing all these types of dunks, Bennett said. We just had a love for his game.Bennett eventually moved to the U.S. and played high school basketball at Nevadas Findlay Prep. After one season at UNLV, he was chosen first in the 2013 draft by the Cavaliers.His path has become a familiar one for young prospects from Canada.While prep schools there are becoming better and better, and the summer AAU circuit gives them plenty of exposure, the best players still tend to head south for school. That includes Wiggins, the son of former NBA player Mitch Wiggins, who also grew up watching Carter in Toronto but wound up at West Virginias Huntington Prep for high school.Wiggins was so dynamic that he actually reclassified to graduate a year earlier, and was still the No. 1 prospect in the country. He ultimately went to Kansas for a year, setting several records at the tradition-rich school.Now, after he and Bennett were traded from Cleveland, they are together in Minnesota.Its been getting bigger and bigger every year, Wiggins said of basketball in Canada. Plaayers started to get a chance to go to the States and go to prep schools down here.ddddddddddddThat has made it even easier for them to get on college coaches radars, and helps to explain why so many Canadian prospects have turned into first-round draft picks.Its certainly not like it was in the 1950s, when Ernie Vandeweghe arrived out of Montreal and played several seasons for the Knicks. Its not even like it was in the 1980s, 90s and early 2000s, when Bill Wennington was winning titles on Michael Jordans Bulls, and Rick Fox was winning championships alongside Kobe Bryant and Shaquille ONeal.Youre always fighting against hockey, said Sidney Lowe, who coached the Grizzlies when they were an expansion team in Vancouver. But the thing about the Toronto area is they withstood the tough times. Their support is unbelievable and the result is you see more kids from Canada playing basketball and making it to this level.Guys like Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph, first-round picks in 2011, and Andrew Nicholson, a first-round pick the following year. Bennett was joined by Kelly Olynyk in going in the first round in 2013, and Wiggins was joined by Tyler Ennis and Nik Stauskas this past spring.At the grassroots level, theyre extremely organized, Arizona coach Sean Miller said. You watch some of their teams on our travel circuit that we have here in the United States, their teams are participating in that. You can tell theyre very well coached.Arizona is among numerous high-profile schools pursuing the top-ranked prep player in the class of 2016, 7-foot centre Thon Maker. Duke, Kansas and Kentucky are also in the mix.His teammate at Ontarios Athlete Institute, five-star guard Jamal Murray, is considering Michigan State, Ohio State and Missouri. On the other side of the country in British Colombia, 6-foot-6 guard Jermaine Haley is looking at Louisville, Memphis and Gonzaga.Canada is producing good players and they seem to be more abundant than maybe in the past, said Arizona State coach Herb Sendek, who lured 7-foot-2 Jordan Bachynski out of Calgary a few years ago. Bachynski graduated last year and now plays professionally in Turkey.Theres very few guys that fall through the cracks anymore that are unknown, Sendek said. Those kids come down and play club basketball and schools have a way of finding out about kids. The good players in Canada, like Jordan and others, theyre heavily recruited.And the pipeline doesnt look like its going to run dry anytime soon.
