The Carolina Panthers are very happy with Cam Newton.
What isn’t questionable is the impact the ex-Auburn star has had on the Carolina Panthers (2-5). With seven games under his belt, Newton has surpassed all expectations by breaking records and leading an offense, which is ranked No. 5 in the NFL after experiencing a season of finishing near the bottom in several major categories.
Despite a losing record, Newton has brought hope and excitement to Carolina. He believes he could have played better in spite his excellent numbers. Moreover, he doesn’t take the credit for being fourth in passing yards (2,103) and second in rushing touchdowns (7) in the NFL.
He didn’t take credit for last week’s victory over the Washington Redskins, either.
Newton couldn’t do anything wrong against the Redskins. After throwing three interceptions against the Atlanta Falcons two weeks ago, Newton didn’t have a turnover and completed 18 of 23 passes for 256 yards and a 127.5 passer rating. He finished with a 127.5 passer rating and rushed for 59 yards on 10 carries.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera gave Newton the game ball for that performance. But Newton decided to give the ball to the offensive line.
