Cam Newton was extremely effective against a solid Atlanta D with his 215 passing yards and two TDs on 15-of-24 attempts. He also added a TD on his nine rushes for 86 yards.
Analysis: He was fantastic and put up a QB rating of 119.3. This is great news for any Newton owner and this is the type of productivity that should come from last year's top pick. The Panthers don't have much in the area of weapons for Cam, especially with Brandon LaFell falling off a cliff, so he will be asked to run the ball more often than most quarterbacks. Even though he has a brutal matchup next week against the Seahawks, there's no way any owner can even consider benching him.
