After showing up the Saints at home in Week 2, Cam Newton was expected to give the Giants a run for their money on Thursday. Newton, though, could not find any kind of rhythm on offense, completing just 16 of 30 passes for 242 yards and three interceptions.
Fantasy Impact: Not exactly the type of performance fantasy owners were anticipating from Cam against a team that made Josh Freeman look like a stud at times. Newton did punch one touchdown in on the ground, but his overall performance on the night was nothing to write home about. He couldn't even chip in with any garbage time points, leaving owners likely disgruntled at this point.
