Adam Schefter Suggests Cam Newton Got Better After Car Accident, Twitter Responds

Cam Newton Accident

Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of Cam Newton‘s car accident.  You know, the one that took place in Charlotte, North Carolina, in which Newton’s truck flipped and the Panthers’ quarterback had to be loaded onto a stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital.

Prior to that accident, Newton had led his Panthers to a disappointing 3-8-1 record during the 2014 NFL season.  Following the accident, the team won it’s final four games of the season to earn a playoff birth (where they beat the Cardinals before losing to the Seahawks in the NFC Divisional Round), and this season they’re a perfect 12-0 through the first 13 weeks.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter made note of Newton’s before-crash and after-crash records on Twitter…
