Stat Line of the Night — 11/18/2013 — Cam Newton
Many have questioned the Carolina Panthers’ ability to beat the league’s top teams during their current winning streak, but after beating the San Francisco 49ers in week 10, they had a chance to earn another eye-opening victory against the 7-2 New England Patriots on Monday Night Football in week 11.
That victory would come thanks in large part to Cam Newton, who was getting the job done with both his arm and his legs. In addition to completing 19 of his 28 pass attempts for 209 yards and three touchdowns, Newton also rushed the ball seven times for 62 yards to lead the Panthers’ backfield during their 24-20 win.
With the victory, the Panthers’ win-streak is now at six games, and the last two have been especially impressive. And speaking of impressive, Cam Newton was just that last night, as he out-dueled Tom Brady on national television. That earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Monday, November 18, 2013.
