Newton completed 16-of-27 passes for 183 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions in Thursday's 33-14 rout of the Cowboys, but did score on the ground as part of a 12-carry, 45-yard effort. It's the first game all season in which Newton didn't throw for a touchdown, but the quarterback did well to help the Panthers' offense string together 18 first downs to dominate the time of possession. He still managed to come through with a rushing touchdown and compiled his fourth-highest yardage total of the season on the ground. Although Newton's collective production as a passer and runner was a little light compared to most weeks, fantasy owners are likely to excuse him after he tossed a career-high five touchdowns against Washington just four days earlier.
Newton completed 21 of 34 passes for 246 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Redskins. He also gained 16 yards on four carries. The 26-year-old continued his assent Sunday, leading the Panthers to 10-0 on the back of 30 straight points following the first quarter. Newton's five scores on the day gave him a new career-high with 26 total touchdowns this season, including 13 compared to just three turnovers in the last three games. Next up for Carolina will be a Thanksgiving matchup against the Cowboys.
Newton completed 21-of-26 passes for 217 yards with a touchdown, and added 23 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in a typical performance Sunday against the Titans. For the fourth time in the last five games, Newton found the end zone both through the air and on the ground. Newton's ability as a dual-threat quarterback places him firmly in the upper echelon of the game's fantasy signal-callers. He should be an excellent option against the Redskins next week as the Panthers push for a 10-0 start.
Newton was excellent in Sunday's win over the Packers, completing 15-of-30 passes for 297 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. He also rushed for 57 yards and another touchdown on nine caries. Facing a tough Green Bay team at home, Newton responded with his best all-around fantasy performance of the season, setting a season-high mark of four total touchdowns. Newton's rushing score was his fifth of the season, and his involvement in that phase of the offense has returned him to the upper tier of fantasy quarterbacks, despite a lack of depth at the skill positions around him. Newton will look to keep things rolling as the Panthers travel to take on the Titans in Week 10.
Newton completed 16-of-35 passes for 248 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Monday night's overtime win against the Colts. He also rushed 10 times for 41 yards and lost a fumble. Newton's performance was hampered by extremely wet conditions in Carolina on Monday night, which inevitably led to some dropped passes from his receivers, along with fumbles and errant throws as well. So while Newton's completion percentage was rather underwhelming, he still found a way to lead the Panthers to yet another victory, utilizing a nice mixture of designed runs to keep the Colts' defense off-balance. When it was all said and done, Newton's 248 passing yards actually marked his third-best total so far this season, and his two second-half touchdown passes bolstered what ultimately was a commendable display considering the conditions.
