Stat Line of the Night — 11/26/2012 — Cam Newton
Upon first glance, the most impressive stat line from last night’s game between the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles appears to belong to Eagles rookie running back Bryce Brown, who rumbled for 189 total yards and two touchdowns. But one key area where Brown’s stat line was lacking was in the win column.
That opened the door for Cam Newton to steal “Stat Line of the Night” honors from Brown on this occasion, as the Panthers quarterback completed 18 of his 28 pass attempts for 306 yards and two touchdowns in front of a nationally televised audience. And in addition to that impressive performance through the air, Newton also added another 52 yards and two touchdowns on the ground during the Panthers’ 30-22 victory over the Eagles.
One year after earning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors, Newton has struggled mightily. Hopefully he’ll be able to build off of what was easily his most impressive performance of the 2012 NFL season, as he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Monday, November 26, 2012.
