2017 Week 18 vs NO (24 / 40 / 349 / 2 / 0 pass, 8 / 37 / 0 rush)
Coping as best as he could with a depleted receiving corps, Cam Newton showed vast improvement from last week against Atlanta. The Panthers looked to get him into a rhythm with some zone read plays and designed runs early, but the Saints kept these under wraps for the most part. It was as a passer, especially towards the end of the game, when Newton shone. A pinpoint pass to Greg Olsen on the sideline - low and away from the defender ˝ augured well for what was to come. The Panthers offense, as it has all season, consisted of little chunks of yardage and Newton was often asked to convert tricky third downs. An early end zone shot to Kaelin Clay should have been a touchdown, but it was dropped by the receiver. As the Panthers saw the deficit on the scoreboard widen, Newton and the offense had to go more pass-heavy. With that Newton dealt with more pressure and took a couple of unnecessary sacks. Still, he managed to battle on and hit Olsen for a beautiful touchdown pass on a stick and nod route in the red zone. He added a second touchdown pass with a quick ball to Christian McCaffrey, with the rookie turning on the jets to reach the end zone. Newton got clocked in the head late in the game and appeared to be concussed, but he came back into the game. Newton managed to orchestrate a successful final drive, but was called for intentional grounding that essentially ended the game. Overall, it was a clean game from Newton, who will rue the lack of red zone success as the Saints blanketed the Carolina weapons effectively.
2017 Week 17 vs ATL (14 / 34 / 180 / 1 / 3 pass, 11 / 59 / 0 rush)
Cam Newton played one of the poorer games of his career in his hometown, consistently leaving receivers out to dry with his errant passes. His inaccuracy was apparent early on; even from a clean pocket, he was calibrating his targets a few inches too high. Newton's lazy footwork - not stepping into the throw with his front foot - seemed to be the culprit, with the strong-armed passer relying too much on that asset. The only way the Panthers could move the ball early was with Newton's legs. Atlanta continued to shut down the passing attack with strong man to man coverage. This led to repeated third-and-long situations, which the undermanned receiving corps and Newton simply could not overcome. Even Greg Olsen couldn't get on the same page as his quarterback; the two seemed to be out of sync on several key throws. A passing touchdown after a passionate sideline rallying cry ignited some life into the offense, as Newton fired a bullet pass on a slant to Devin Funchess in the end zone. The inside handoff fake was executed to perfection, giving Newton an open throwing window. Newton seemed to lose confidence as the game went on, and tossed three interceptions, the most unforgivable of which came on a routine pass down the middle. It appeared he and the intended receiver, Brenton Bersin, were not on the same page at all, and it was an easy pick for the defender. The second came on a high target to Olsen, who made an attempt to bring the ball in one-handed, but saw it bounce off his paws and into an Atlanta defender's hands. The final nail in the coffin came with less than 30 seconds remaining, a hopeful pass to the front left pylon intended for Funchess. It was an ugly performance from Newton, who has a penchant for producing these games from time to time.
2017 Week 16 vs TB (16 / 25 / 160 / 0 / 1 pass, 14 / 52 / 1 rush)
It was a game of ups and downs for Cam Newton, who went through everything from a hit to his family jewels to fumbling the shotgun snap ˝ but somehow still scoring ˝ on the game-deciding touchdown. Newton appeared to have picked up where he left off against Green Bay and Minnesota with his early passes, but things steadily went downhill. Pressure from Tampa Bay started to surface some of Newton's bad habits, and he held the ball too long on a few occasions, taking one unnecessary sack that pushed Carolina out of field goal range. The offense, after being clinical in the red zone in recent weeks, sputtered in this area and had to settle for field goals. Newton's decision-making was often a beat late and in the second half there was a much greater emphasis on using his talents as a runner. Several designed quarterback runs and option plays seemed to ignite a fire in him. He tossed his only interception of the game on a downfield shot to Brenton Bersin, who initially caught the pass, only to have it knocked out and picked off by a pursuing Buccaneers defender. To Newton's credit, he really turned it on in the final three minutes with the game on the line, tossing laser passes downfield for big chunks. With the game on the line, Newton took the shotgun snap from the Tampa Bay 1-yard line, fumbled it forwards and then scooped it up for a rushing touchdown. The play perhaps summed up the day for Newton who, despite his many hiccups during the game, found a way.
2017 Week 15 vs GB (20 / 31 / 242 / 4 / 0 pass, 14 / 58 / 0 rush)
In one of his cleanest games in a while, Cam Newton was good value for every one of his four touchdown tosses against the Packers. Newton started off with good rhythm, mixing run and pass well, including a key 10-yard scramble for a first down. Relying on the soft hands and route-running of Greg Olsen and the shiftiness of Christian McCaffrey, Newton looked to be in the groove. He capitalised with his first touchdown pass, a rocket shot to McCaffrey on a Texas route after matriculating the ball down the field. No Packers defender was close to the rookie, who waltzed in. Newton's cadence was giving the Packers trouble; in all, the visitors were called for four offsides penalties. Showing good control and poise, Newton took what the defense gave him. However, he seemed to throw caution to the wind in the second half, as the play calling got more aggressive. A 30-yard touchdown pass, his second, came on a busted coverage as Olsen blew past the Packers coverage. Newton's third touchdown pass came soon after, a bullet pass to the back of the end zone to Damiere Byrd. Newton would finish with a flourish, adding a fourth - again to Byrd - on a skinny post route. It was a thoroughly professional display from the quarterback, who was afforded excellent protection and benefited from a rock solid ground game.
2017 Week 14 vs MIN (13 / 25 / 137 / 1 / 1 pass, 11 / 70 / 0 rush)
An erratic display from Cam Newton contributed to an offensive performance that was bereft of any semblance of rhythm. The Vikings dared the Panthers to throw the ball outside the numbers all game long, often deploying their safeties comically close to the line of scrimmage. Newton took a few deep shots, but each time they were well covered. For the most part the pass protection gave Newton the platform to make throws; they simply weren't there, or he would fade back and invite pressure rather than stepping up in the pocket. He managed to connect on a beautiful back shoulder pass down the left sideline to Devin Funchess to set up a touchdown, but would follow that up with a scattershot heave downfield to nobody in particular. The rushing attack was doing its part, but the Panthers had several three-and-out drives in the second half as they were nursing a lead. Newton's lone touchdown pass came on a good improvisational play in the red zone. Detecting pressure, Newton faded back in the pocket, evaded a sack and tossed a laser to a wide open Funchess on the goal line. It was an ill-advised throw in the circumstances, but Newton did well to buy time and make a play. Newton tossed a late interception on what appeared to be a simple pass to Christian McCaffrey after leaving the football too high. The quarterback would make up for his error on the Panthers' final possession, sprinting 62 yards downfield after making a man miss with an incredible open field move. It wasn't a clean game from Newton, but he did enough.
2017 Week 13 vs NO (17 / 27 / 183 / 2 / 0 pass, 6 / 51 / 0 rush)
It was a mixed bag for Cam Newton in the critical division road game against New Orleans. The game script was negative early as Carolina trailed by 14 points by the middle of the second quarter. Newton had his moments of accurate passes, but critical plays were left on the field either by Newton's inaccuracy or dropped passes. Newton threw a bullet to Kaelin Clay on a third down slant early in the game and a deep out to Brenton Bersin, a throw not many quarterbacks can complete with such ease. However, Newton notably underthrew Damiere Byrd on a deep route, a likely touchdown, which was tipped away by the defensive back catching up to the play. A well-thrown seam pass by Newton to Russell Shepard was also dropped. As a runner, Newton had a 10-yard rush called back by penalty, a long rush of 30 yards, and shed a rusher to find Ed Dickson as an outlet receiver. For the fourth time over the last five games, Newton did not surpass 200 passing yards. On the plus side, Newton avoided turning the ball over for the fourth straight game. Minnesota offers arguably the toughest passing test for Carolina of the season next week.
2017 Week 12 vs NYJ (11 / 28 / 168 / 0 / 0 pass, 9 / 28 / 1 rush)
It was a day of ups and downs for Cam Newton, whose reported thumb injury during the week may have affected his performance. His accuracy was poor for the entire game, with many throws out of his receivers' reach. Offensive coordinator Mike Shula's play calling seemed to be a tacit admission of Newton's issues, with more designed quarterback runs to mitigate things. Newton appeared to be a beat late on a number of throws, with an end zone target to Greg Olsen the standout. Olsen was wide open by most standards and what should have been a simple pitch and catch went over Olsen's head. In the pocket Newton made some poor decisions and looked antsy against the pass rush, at times turning his back and retreating from pressure. Newton managed to salvage his day with a naked bootleg off the left side for a rushing touchdown with the offense set up at the Jets 1-yard line. The second half saw the offense sputter once again, only to be bailed out by a defensive touchdown and a special teams touchdown.
2017 Week 10 vs MIA (21 / 35 / 254 / 4 / 0 pass, 5 / 95 / 0 rush)
In what was a controlled and mature performance from Cam Newton, the offense really came together in every way possible. After an early hiccup or two with inaccurate passes, Newton fired a pass off play action into Russell Shepard that seemed to ignite him. The Panthers utilized his legs once again on the quarterback draw on a few occasions, and he was able to break off a 50+-yard scamper late in the game on a zone read play. Newton was fortunate not to be picked off on a throw back across his body in the red zone; the defensive back allowed the ball to trickle free of his grasp. A couple of inaccurate throws ˝ one to Ed Dickson and the other to Curtis Samuel ˝ would have frustrated Newton, but he bounced back. His first touchdown pass was an incredible job of ball placement on a post route to Dickson in the red zone. Newton fired the pass high and away from the defender, and Dickson made his quarterback look good with a sprawling grab. Newton could have added a touchdown pass on a perfect pass to Curtis Samuel in the end zone had the rookie not dropped the ball. Newton's second touchdown pass came on a wonderfully executed bubble screen after an audible. Seeing an all out blitz look from Miami, Newton changed the play and had only to flick the ball out to Devin Funchess, who scooted up the sideline to score. Newton's third touchdown pass came on a zipped effort to Christian McCaffrey, who had run a quick out. Newton rolled that direction and fired a low ball to the rookie, who impressively hauled it in with two knees down. Newton finished off what was a near-perfect game with a back shoulder pass to Funchess for a fourth score. The cornerback in coverage was in no man's land, and the ball placement was such that Funchess could twist away and score easily.
2017 Week 9 vs ATL (13 / 24 / 137 / 0 / 0 pass, 9 / 86 / 1 rush)
Cam Newton relied more on his legs than his arm to move the Carolina offense, with designed quarterback runs a staple of the strategy. An early draw - with a lead block from Christian McCaffrey - saw Newton come out of his shell. After a couple of typically inaccurate passes on short throws, another big run off a naked bootleg reignited his confidence. The offense sputtered early in large part due to two Jonathan Stewart fumbles, but Newton kept them moving with key throws, including a sideline dart to Curtis Samuel that would have been picked if not for Newton's high-end arm strength. Newton executed an option pitch for a touchdown to McCaffrey very smoothly, flicking the football nonchalantly with his left hand to allow the rookie to run on to it for the score. A high-flying Newton would cash in himself on the next drive, seeing a crease in the red zone and diving over the top for the touchdown. The ball came loose at the end of the play, but by then it had already broken the plane. It was a risky move by the quarterback, but it paid off handsomely. The Panthers offense clicked much better in the second half, with Newton linking up well with McCaffrey and Devin Funchess. However, for the most part it was a game of keep away, with Newton's role as a passer minimised.
2017 Week 8 vs TB (18 / 32 / 154 / 1 / 1 pass, 11 / 44 / 0 rush)
There was very little to write home about after a ho-hum performance from Cam Newton against the Bucs. A stifling effort from the defense allowed the Panthers to play sound but rather pedestrian football offensively. The offense could have produced more big plays downfield, but Newton continued to show his scattershot accuracy by firing passes out of the reach of his receivers on third down. It appeared every third down called for a deep pass, as Newton rarely scanned the underneath patterns to convert and keep the chains moving. Newton linked up very well with Christian McCaffrey at the end of the first half, trusting his shifty weapon to win against linebackers - which he did routinely. Newton tossed an interception on a target for Ed Dickson, an outside-breaking deeper pass that simply lacked the zip and accuracy required. The ball - too far inside - allowed Chris Conte to pick it off. Newton was afforded good protection for the most part and played within himself otherwise. He ran the ball effectively on zone read plays, and showed great juice and footwork on the Panthers' clinching touchdown drive. Newton tossed his lone touchdown pass of the game to Kelvin Benjamin on a deep, lofted pass in the red zone. Benjamin was standing in front of the defensive back, who had no chance to play through the receiver to make the breakup.
2017 Week 7 vs CHI (21 / 34 / 211 / 0 / 2 pass, 9 / 50 / 0 rush)
This was a game defined by steadily building pressure, which eventually forced Cam Newton and the Panthers' shaky foundations to break down and collapse. Newton did himself no favours at times, holding the football far too long in the pocket and inviting sacks, hits and hurries. A reshuffled offensive line was forced upon the unit when center Ryan Kalil had to leave the game with a reaggravation of his neck injury, while Pro Bowl guard Trai Turner was also forced off. A patchwork line did a poor job of protecting Newton throughout the game, meaning short throws were the order of the day. The ground game was a futile endeavour once again, so the burden fell on an off-colour Newton to lead the offense. What looked like a promising opening possession, however, was ended abruptly after an option pitch to Curtis Samuel was dropped and fumbled, eventually being recovered by the Bears for a touchdown. The afternoon would get worse for the offense. Newton was at fault for his first interception, forcing a pass on a slant in to Kelvin Benjamin, who was blanketed by good coverage on the play. The cornerback popped the ball out and it flew into the air, landing in a grateful Chicago player's arms. He would waste no time in returning that for a touchdown as well. With the offense in desperation mode, the Panthers went to more quick-hitting passes and Newton designed runs. However, the Bears were prepared for it and seemed to suck the life out of Newton with punishing hit after punishing hit. A shell-shocked Newton eventually caved in, as he rolled right and tossed an interception straight to a Bears linebacker, who couldn't believe his luck.
2017 Week 6 vs PHI (28 / 52 / 239 / 1 / 3 pass, 11 / 71 / 1 rush)
Cam Newton started the game in comfortable fashion, reading the field well and not forcing anything against a hyper-aggressive defense. However, as the game wore on, some familiar flaws began to resurface. The Eagles pass rush gave the Panthers offensive line fits throughout, with Newton often having to keep extra blockers in to chip the edge rushers. When they got too aggressive, Newton would smartly take off running and get what he could with his legs. The rushing attack was completely shut down for anyone not named Newton, so it was on the former MVP's shoulders to run the offense. Newton connected early and often with Kelvin Benjamin, who continued to exploit soft coverage on the outside for small chunks of yardage. The issue with the offense was that it couldn't muster any more than chunks; at one point in the third quarter, Newton completed a pass for 19 yards which at that time was the longest play. Newton managed to get into the end zone for a rushing touchdown, using the threat of an option pitch outside to sprint up the middle, juking a defender out of his shoes on the way. It would all go downhill from that point, with Newton tossing three interceptions, one of which was not his fault. The first came after Fletcher Cox bull rushed right guard Trai Turner back into Newton's lap. The attempted pass came out wobbly and landed in the grateful hands of an Eagles defensive back. The second pick was a simple pass into the flat for Jonathan Stewart, who somehow saw it bounce off his hand and into a defender's arms. The third pick was symptomatic of the way the game was flowing; pressure had been building steadily throughout, and Newton simply forced a throw over the middle against a blitz, with no Panthers receiver in the vicinity. The protection really broke down as the game went on, and with no running game to speak of there was little respite. Newton tossed a pitch and catch touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey to make things interesting in the fourth quarter, but followed that up by missing McCaffrey with a low pass on a game-deciding fourth down. It was an ugly game for the offense despite the 23 points scored, and Newton will have been disappointed with his performance against the blitz.
2017 Week 5 vs DET (26 / 33 / 355 / 3 / 0 pass, 7 / 0 / 0 rush)
All eyes were on Cam Newton in this game to see how he would respond, not only to off field criticism, but to pundits who dismissed his performance against New England as a fluke. The seventh-year quarterback put those critics in their place with another near-flawless display. It seems Newton is well and truly back from his shoulder surgery and looked poised throughout behind a well-drilled offensive line. With that platform to work from, Newton eschewed the short to intermediate passes and instead made his intentions clear with chunk plays. It was Ed Dickson who was the beneficiary for the most part, as Newton peppered him with passes down the seam. The play calling of Mike Shula allowed the Panthers to keep the Lions defense off balance, with a naked bootleg toss to Dickson for a huge gain on 3rd and short a prime example. Shula's call for Newton's first touchdown pass was one of sheer brilliance. Set up in the red zone, Newton took the shotgun snap and veered left with Jonathan Stewart looking ready to accept an option pitch. All the while, Christian McCaffrey was moving right to left and sneaked behind the offensive line to receive a shovel pass from Newton for the score. The initial movement had the Lions defenders in a bind, and McCaffrey was unaccounted for. As Newton began to get into his stride, he tossed a second red zone touchdown pass to Devin Funchess. Newton had ample time to go through his reads, but had to buy time after his first couple were covered. Funchess adjusted his route smartly and Newton fired a bullet pass Űabove the rim' to his tall receiver, who came down with a tough catch. Newton's third touchdown pass was a thing of beauty as he lofted up another arced, high pass to Kelvin Benjamin streaking down the left sideline. Benjamin established position at the snap, giving Newton a green light to throw up a rainbow. Benjamin answered the call and made an impressive catch. Newton would maintain his composure on the game-clinching third down play, zipping a pass to Benjamin on a slant route to cap a magnificent display.
2017 Week 4 vs NE (22 / 29 / 316 / 3 / 1 pass, 8 / 44 / 1 rush)
In what was undoubtedly Cam Newton's most complete and crisp game of this young season, the quarterback hardly put a foot wrong. Play calling in the early stages set an aggressive tone for the offense; they were well aware of the weaknesses of the Patriots defense, and set about exploiting them with chunk plays. Newton showed his poise early, looking off the single high safety before firing a strike down the seam to Ed Dickson. The pass protection was crucial throughout the game, with Newton rarely under duress. As such, he was able to survey the field and get the ball out on time and in rhythm. A rare miss on a deep route saw him slightly overthrow Devin Funchess in the end zone, but that was the exception and not the rule on this day. The Patriots defense didn't make many plays to halt Newton, but a poor decision in the first quarter saw Newton give them one for free as he tossed a ball deep right into double coverage. The play was never there, and fortunately the intended receiver Damiere Byrd made the tackle to prevent a big return. From that point on, Newton was locked in and continued to exploit a Patriots defense that dropped assignments constantly. The first of his touchdown passes came on a well-designed screen pass to Fozzy Whittaker. Newton faked a screen to the right to Christian McCaffrey, who the Patriots had focused on, before coming back left to Whittaker, who dashed into the end zone untouched. Newton continued to fire darts between the numbers to Funchess and Kelvin Benjamin, who had no problem bullying Patriots defensive backs. Newton's second touchdown pass was another easy one as Funchess found himself uncovered at the back of the end zone; no Patriots defender was even close to him, and it was a simple throw for the red-hot quarterback. The Panthers incorporated some designed runs into the playbook this week, and Newton looked spry and energetic after earning first downs with his legs. Newton went back to Funchess for his third touchdown pass, firing a bullet pass in the red zone on an inside-breaking route. The pass was slightly behind Funchess, but the receiver made it look easy as he reached back and secured the ball. The scoring wasn't over for Newton, who added an old school touchdown run on a veer play. Newton faked to McCaffrey and held it in the belly as long as he could before pulling the ball out and knifing up the middle from 10 yards out. Newton would not be denied, barrelling over a couple of Patriots tacklers.
2017 Week 3 vs NO (17 / 26 / 167 / 0 / 3 pass, 3 / 16 / 1 rush)
Cam Newton took a concerning step backwards in his third game back after offseason shoulder surgery, succumbing to crucial errors to give his team no chance. The first drive augured well for the Panthers offense, as a series of runs and misdirection plays had the Saints on their heels. However, on Newton's first dropback pass in the red zone a blown assignment by left tackle Matt Kalil saw the quarterback instantly knocked to the ground. That play shifted the momentum and suddenly the offense looked predictable and conservative. Newton's first interception came soon afterward, a simple slant-flat combination on the right picked off as the Saints defensive back read it perfectly. Newton's pass was a little too far inside and gave the defender an opportunity. Deep targets to Devin Funchess were routinely thrown too far ahead of the receiver for him to have any shot of reaching them. Newton's biggest issue was simply misreading the defense; at times he would force the ball in to a receiver when another popped wide open on the same play. With the offense in comeback mode in the second half, things got ugly fast. Newton's second interception came as he tried to force a pass into Christian McCaffrey. The ball travelled too high out of his hand and got tipped into the air and intercepted with one hand by the Saints. His third pick would follow soon after to put a dagger in the Panthers' chances. Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro was playing a roving role and read the eyes of Newton to step in front of Funchess. The only saving grace for the quarterback was a rushing touchdown off an option look that he finished well, but the problems of this offense are many and start with Newton's rustiness and streaky passing.
2017 Week 2 vs BUF (20 / 32 / 228 / 0 / 0 pass, 5 / 27 / 0 rush)
The road to recovery continues for Cam Newton, who had to deal with a much stiffer test this week than last. The offensive line gave him ample time early on as he got into a rhythm and fired a laser to Kelvin Benjamin, his favourite target on this day. For every positive play, however, there was a questionable near-interception on a misread, or an overthrow that put the offense in a bad situation. The running attack was mostly shut down by the Bills, so Newton was forced to knock off more rust. At times he linked up very well with Benjamin and Devin Funchess, firing darts on inside-breaking patterns. When the pocket collapsed, Newton showed he is not afraid to use his legs when necessary, dodging a couple of would-be tacklers and diving for first downs. As the game wore on, Newton's protection began to dissolve in front of him and he took a lot of hits. One in particular saw him stay down on the ground; after being checked by the medics, however, he was allowed to return to the action. It was in the red zone that the Bills frustrated Carolina, with zipped passes to Benjamin and Russell Shepard batted down. Newton will have been kicking himself for missing a wide open Christian McCaffrey in the flat for what would have been an easy touchdown. He simply threw the pass too high for the rookie, who was uncovered, to reel it in. Newton also missed a straightforward pass downfield to Ed Dickson. Overall, it was a solid outing from a scattershot Newton, but he will know he is capable of more.
2017 Week 1 vs SF (14 / 25 / 171 / 2 / 1 pass, 6 / 3 / 0 rush)
Comfort was the key for Cam Newton in the early stages, and offensive coordinator Mike Shula's play calls were clearly with his quarterback's confidence in mind. The talents of backfield duo Jonathan Stewart and Christian McCaffrey were heavily emphasised as the passing game sputtered in the first few drives. Newton had an early fumble on a center-quarterback exchange, and was nearly intercepted after being baited into a throw by linebacker Reuben Foster. Newton eventually knocked off some of the rust, however, and fired a nice touchdown pass to Russell Shepard. The receiver found a weak spot in the 49ers' zone defense, and Newton's pass gave him the opportunity to juke a defender and score. Typically, Newton's inaccuracies came to the fore at times; his most flagrant error being missing a wide open touchdown pass to tight end Ed Dickson. The offensive line afforded Newton fantastic protection throughout the game, keeping him very clean. When pressured, he showed good poise and vision to keep his eyes downfield and link up with McCaffrey and others. His second touchdown pass came on a well-designed play that exploited the 49ers' attention on McCaffrey. With both McCaffrey and Stewart in the backfield, the rookie pulled away the underneath coverage with a flat route, allowing Stewart to sneak in behind his offensive line mates. Newton had a simple dump off pass to Stewart for the score, who finished impressively by diving over the top. Newton was locked in with his passes in the second half, looking like a totally different player. He delivered on time and accurately to Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess on crucial third down plays to keep drives alive and to salt the game away. His interception was a throw that perhaps he shouldn't have made, but such is his trust in Benjamin he attempted it anyway. It came on a deep route to the burly receiver, but the 49ers' single high safety made a great break on the pass and intercepted it with one hand.
