NEWTON @ 49ERS
The Carolina Panthers will play the New Orleans Saints this weekend in Charlotte at 1:00pm eastern time. Cam Newton might have had a bit of a slow start to the season against the 49ers but he has definitely improved in week two while playing the Bills. Newton may not look like the 2015 MVP quarterback we have seen but he is much better compared to last year. In week one Cam Newton attempted 25 passes and completed 14. It was not that bad of a start but Panther fans were hoping for a better comeback for Cam as he did not play in the preseason that often because of his rotator cuff surgery. Cam Newton ended up passing for 171 yards. Newton’s rushing game was also very limited as he ran 6 times for only 3 yards. We could see that he was not very comfortable with leaving the pocket but in week two everything had changed!
NEWTON VS. BILLS
In week two Cam Newton was completely feeling himself in front of the home crowd! All he needed was one game to get back into the rhythm with the Panthers. Cam Newton attempted 32 passes and completed 20. In total he threw for 228 yards and that was 57 more yards than in week one. Newton addressed during the press conference that he still was disappointed in himself but he will take the win. His running game improved as he rushed for 27 yards in 5 attempts. That is still 24 yards more than in week one! Cam Newton is getting better and better week by week and I am sure that he will be fantastic against the Saints. One thing we saw in week two was that Cam Newton threw the ball to more receivers than in week one. If Carolina wants to have a great offense then Cam needs to continue passing to anyone that is open.
NEWTON VS. SAINTS??
We all know that Cam Newton loves to play football and he always wants to have a great game. This weekend Newton should be able to do just that because he is feeling more confident each game and there will be no one to stop him. The Saints are currently 0-2 and the main problem for them will be their defense trying to stop Cam. Their offense may be clicking but their defense needs some improvement to stop a dynamic Carolina Panthers offense. My prediction is that Newton will rush for more than 50 yards and pass for more than 200 yards. When Cam Newton starts feeling it then no one can stop him! He brought back the dab last Sunday after a large rushing gain and we look forward to seeing that Cam Newton this Sunday! Newton definitely has the power to lead the Panthers to 3-0 and lets see what happens this Sunday. Keep Pounding!
