Panthers QB Cam Newton takes step back vs. Green Bay
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton took a step back and had two of his offensive lineman go down with injuries in a disappointing performance Week 7 at Green Bay.

Newton was intercepted by Casey Hayward late in the third quarter before bouncing back with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin in the fourth quarter. With the game well out of hand in the fourth quarter, Newton was subbed out for Derek Anderson, who fired a touchdown pass to Brenton Bersin late in the game.

Newton compiled 205 passing yards while completing 17 of 31 passes. He threw for a touchdown and was intercepted once, registering a 72.6 passer rating. He was sacked three times and rushed for 41 yards on seven carries in a 38-17 defeat.

Newton and the Panthers will look to get back on track Week 8 at home against Seattle.

Rivera: Cam Newton playing best football of his career
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ron Rivera has proclaimed to the team website that Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is "playing the best he ever has."

Newton ranks in the middle of the pack among NFL quarterbacks in several statistical categories, but he is on the best pace of his career in passing yards and near his best in touchdowns and completion percentage.

Cam Newton ready to dominate again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Working his way back from offseason ankle surgery, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was reluctant to leave the pocket in his first four games, rushing for just 42 yards on 14 carries. But he ripped the Band-Aid off Week 6 at Cincinnati, rushing for 107 yards on 17 carries. He even scored a touchdown on what looked like a designed running play late in the third quarter, taking the ball straight up the middle for 12 yards. It was just second career game with 100-plus rushing yards and his first since 2012.

With that weapon again at his disposal, suddenly his passing numbers are looking pretty good. He threw for another two scores -- his second straight game with that many -- and a season-high 284 yards. He has thrown for at least 250 yards in four of his first five games.

As arguably the most productive dual-threat quarterback in the game (apologies to Russell Wilson), Newton is a must-start in Fantasy when he's right, and he certainly appears to be right with a 7-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio and now a 100-yard game to his credit. Time to get him active for what could be a shootout Week 7 at Green Bay.

Panthers QB Cam Newton surpasses 100 rushing yards Week 6
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton rushed for 100-plus yards for the second time in his career Sunday at Cincinnati. Yet, he and the Panthers had to settle for a 37-all tie Week 6.

Newton completed 29 of 46 passes for 284 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He had 107 rushing yards and one touchdown on 17 carries.

Newton's first touchdown was a 3-yard pass to Kelvin Benjamin in the first quarter. He then ran for a 12-yard touchdown in the third quarter and connected with Greg Olsen for a 13-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.

Newton had a 17-yard touchdown pass to Benjamin nullified late in the third quarter due to an offensive pass interference penalty. Graham Gano would miss a 38-yard field goal three plays later.

The Panthers are back in action Week 7 at Green Bay.

Panthers not interested in QB Cam Newton going no-huddle all the time
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Although Panthers quarterback Cam Newton thrived in the no-huddle offense in Week 5 against the Bears, head coach Ron Rivera said he's not interested in going no-huddle all of the time, because he wants his team to control the tempo, per the Associated Press.

The Panthers went no-huddle on the final drive of the first half half and the first drive of the second half. Newton compiled for 124 yards and a touchdown through the air while completing 8 of 11 passes. He only completed 8 of 24 pass attempts the rest of the way, per ESPN.

The Panthers will face the Bengals in Cincinnati in Week 6.
