Cam Newton QB CAR Nov 04 '123 Comments
Cam Newton completed 13-of-23 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown and added 37 yards and a second score on eight rushing attempts versus the Redskins in Week 9.
Newton's mechanics have been spotty, and he put his entire body into at least a handful of throws on Sunday. When he threw effortlessly, however, he enjoyed plenty of success, finishing with a 100.1 passer rating and 8.7 YPA. He unleashed a 19-yard laser to Steve Smith for a score and found Armanti Edwards wide open for an 82-yard pass play. Newton's schedule opens up the rest of the way after facing a series of top-5 pass defenses in the past month. Heading into a Week 10 bout with the Broncos, Newton is on pace to go 268-of-470 (57.0 percent) for 3804 yards (8.1 YPA) and a 12:16 TD-to-INT ratio while adding 694 rushing yards and eight more scores.
