Panthers quarterback Cam Newton’s second NFL season hasn’t been the rousing success that his rookie season was, but his play in Week 12 was something closer to what we saw in 2011.
The performance against the Eagles brought Newton an honor he also claimed during his rookie year.
Newton has been named the NFC offensive player of the week, a prize he also took home in December last year. Newton completed 18-of-28 passes for 306 yards and two touchdowns during Monday night’s 30-22 victory over the Eagles. He also ran 14 times for 52 yards and two more touchdowns in one of his best performances of the season.
not sure who named him that, though.
