UPDATE -- Good news for fantasy football owners: Cam Newton scored a rushing touchdown on the Panthers opening drive of the first half.
He does not have a touchdown (rushing or passing) yet, but he knocked on the doorstep in the first half, scrambling on 3rd-and-goal, but getting stopped short. But fantasy football owners can be glad that Newton has not turned the ball over yet either.
Newton was averaging 308 passing yards a game with 1,847 passing yards on the season and 7 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. Newton also has 6 rushing touchdowns.
Newton was ranked by Yahoo! as the 3rd ranked quarterback heading into Week 7 taking on the Washington Redskins who rank 9th against the pass.
