Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 3 vs CIN (15 / 24 / 150 / 2 / 0 pass, 10 / 36 / 2 rush)

Cam Newton played a very controlled game behind an offensive line that is outdoing itself. The pocket for Newton was clean most of the day - a forced fumble the only blemish on an otherwise unspoiled card - and he took full advantage. Newton often looked deep to short with his passes, tossing some lovely downfield darts to the likes of Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith. However, Newton's usual erratic accuracy came into play early as he threw passes too high for either Funchess or Smith to haul in. When he settled down, however, buoyed by a stellar rushing attack, he began to pick out his targets. Newton scored his first of two rushing touchdowns off a bootleg on 3rd and goal, taking a gap when he saw it to barrel his way in. Later, he would reach pay dirt again off a veer look, doing an excellent job of holding the ball in Christian McCaffrey's belly before pulling it at the last second. Newton tossed his first touchdown pass with the offense set up in the red zone, firing a bullet pass into Funchess on a slant off play action. It was an exquisitely executed fake that had the Bengals on their heels. Newton added a second touchdown pass later on a backside screen pass to C.J. Anderson, who following his blocks to the end zone as Newton watched on gleefully. With the ground attack humming, Newton maintained control of the offense late on, firing some key strikes to his receivers on third down to convert and get enough breathing room to finish the game off.

2018 Week 2 vs ATL (32 / 45 / 335 / 3 / 1 pass, 5 / 42 / 0 rush)

Despite the box score totals indicating a near-perfect game from Cam Newton, there were many flaws in his performance. He had two turnover-worthy throws as the Panthers clawed back from a deficit, one of which hit Desmond Trufant in the hands, the other a pass simply thrown up for grabs to Torrey Smith that fortunately didn't bounce right for Atlanta. The situation was far from ideal for Newton, who for the second time in two weeks had a reshuffled offensive line protecting him. Newton's accuracy was scattershot in the early exchanges, as he missed Smith high and Jarius Wright low, setting the tone for the day. Newton took a shot to his head as he slid on one scramble but returned to the game none the worse for wear. The hit seemed to inspire the offense, and Newton responded with his first touchdown pass, a dart to Wright in the middle of the end zone. The receiver helped out his quarterback on the play, settling down in a void in the zone. Newton held on the ball too long at times and lacked basic pocket awareness as he tried to lock in on deeper plays. For the most part, therefore, he adjusted his radar and targeted Christian McCaffrey underneath, who consistently beat defenders for chunks of yardage. Before long, those chunks added up and Newton threw his second touchdown pass to Smith, who ran a beautiful skinny post route. The throw was pinpoint and the timing was perfect. Newton was forced to shoulder the offense in the final minutes, capping the game with a pass to D.J. Moore on a deep dig that the rookie took for a 51-yard score. However, a crippling interception prior to that play dug a deeper hole for the Panthers, as a simple check down to C.J. Anderson came off his hands, flew into the air and landed in the paws of an Atlanta player.

2018 Week 1 vs DAL (17 / 26 / 161 / 0 / 0 pass, 13 / 58 / 1 rush)

Cam Newton produced a solid, if unspectacular, effort against the Cowboys, as he found himself under duress constantly. The Panthers' offensive line was already a question mark entering the game, the return of Daryl Williams notwithstanding, but Williams didn't even finish the game and more shuffling ensued. Newton offset the pass rush early on with some quarterback runs on keepers and veer plays. Dallas defenders continued to play the inside handoff to the back, so Newton gashed them for their ill-discipline. Newton piled up the rushing yards early and got into a nice rhythm. It was in the passing game that the problems occurred, with receivers struggling to get open and Newton having to get rid of the ball in awkward situations. A clean pocket was a luxury, though even when afforded time Newton failed to connect with his receivers, throwing too high. Newton cashed in on a red zone opportunity with a rushing touchdown - again the Cowboys failed to stay with their assignments. The passing game started to build momentum, albeit on a small scale, in the second half, as Newton found Devin Funchess on some laser passes.

Our View: Newton was unstoppable as a goal line runner, and he was good enough as a passer against a Bengals defense that was supposed to be able to handle a Panthers offensive line without three starters. Consider Newton an elite QB1 going into his bye.
