Newton completed 25 of 39 pass attempts for 269 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Eagles. He also carried seven times for 49 yards in the 21-17 win. Newton completed 64 percent of his pass attempts as he spread the ball around to eight different receivers. He led the most improbable of comebacks by throwing touchdown passes to Devin Funchess and Greg Olsen late in the fourth quarter to put his team ahead. Newton also averaged seven yards per carry as he led the team in rushing. The veteran signal caller has now thrown multiple touchdown passes in five straight games and has just four turnovers to his name on the season. He's in the midst of another outstanding fantasy campaign and will look to keep it going in a tough matchup against the Ravens next Sunday.
Newton completed 27 of 40 attempts for 275 yards with two touchdowns, an interception and 43 rushing yards on nine carries during Sunday's 23-17 loss to Washington. The polarizing Panthers quarterback stood on the Redskins' 16-yard line in the waning moments, facing a second down with the ball in hand and an opportunity to get Carolina to 4-1 on the season. Newton entered the decisive moment having completed a stellar 27 of 37 passes, but when it counted most, Washington's defense stepped up by forcing three consecutive incompletions to seal the victory for the Burgundy and Gold. Newton and the Panthers now face a Week 7 road trip to Philadelphia to take on the defending champions and an Eagles secondary ranking 24th in passing yards allowed per game (273).
Newton completed 21 of 35 pass attempts for 237 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against the Giants. He also carried eight times for 29 yards in the 33-31 win. Newton connected with six different receivers as he notched his second-highest yardage output of the season. He hit Curtis Samuel for a 25-yard touchdown to get his team on the board, and he later found Christian McCaffrey for an 18-yard score in the fourth quarter. Newton did commit multiple turnovers for the first time this season, and he was partly responsible for the Giants coming back and taking a late lead. However, he engineered a last-minute drive to set up a long game-winning field goal by Graham Gano as time expired. It was another solid effort from Newton overall, but fantasy owners will hope for more next Sunday against the Redskins.
Newton returned to Friday's preseason contest against the Patriots, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Newton took a hit, lost the ball in the process and left the contest for a visit in the sideline tent. After some time on the sideline, he was good to go and proceeded to hit top wideout Devin Funchess for a seven-yard gain. Considering he reentered the game, Newton should be good to go moving forward.
Newton (undisclosed) left Friday's preseason game against the Patriots, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. While scrambling for a first down, Newton was upended and lost the ball, which Christian McCaffrey recovered. Newton immediately consulted a trainer and went to the sideline tent for further evaluation. It remains to be seen exactly what he may have injured.
