Cam Newton wins NFC Offensive Player of the Week
Newton is most certainly putting a major dent in the NFC winning his fourth honor in his career, which is a Carolina franchise record.
This is just another day another honor the Carolina Panthers who are now 8-0 after beating Green Bay last week. Cornerback Josh Norman and defensive tackle Kawann Short were both each named NFC Defensive Player of the Week in weeks 4 and 6 respectively.
Newton was 15-of-30 for 297 yards, ran for 57 yards on nine carries, threw for three touchdowns and ran for one, in the 37-29 win against the Packers.
Newton’s stellar play has landed him in talks of being the league’s MVP, which is a long way from now, but most certainly revealing him as a well-qualified contender.
There is a reason the 6’5, 245 pound, first round draft pick wears a number one on his chest, he is breaking records and setting trends.
It was the 29th game of Newton’s career that he has both passed and ran for a touchdown, second most in NFL history.
The Panthers remain one of the three undefeated teams in the NFL alongside the Cincinnati Bengals and the New England Patriots.
After six teams were heading into week 6 undefeated, the Falcons were first to drop off after losing to the Saints, leaving five. The Packers fell against the Broncos, then those same Broncos found themselves short against the Indianapolis Colts, leaving three teams to remain.
When we look at points, the Carolina Panthers is the team that everyone wants to write off first of the three remaining teams, but Newton’s offensive weapons have been the reason they are at the point they are now.
No team should be underestimated in the NFL, especially when you have “Superman” as your quarterback.
Newton looks to keep the streak going as the team matches up against the Tennessee Titans this Sunday.
