Panthers coach Ron Rivera told NBC that Cam Newton's one-play benching on Sunday was the result of a "dress code violation."

Rivera cost his team three points because Newton didn't wear a tie (seriously). Derek Anderson's tipped-ball interception on the game's opening play was a "ball don't lie" if there ever was one. Rivera likely snapped after a year of Russell Westbrook-esque fashion offenses from Newton following games. We're guessing the ol' ball coach won't make the same mistake twice.

Cam Newton was benched for the start of Sunday night's game against Seattle.

Derek Anderson started and threw an interception on his first play of the game. Coach Ron Rivera benched Newton for breaking a "minor team rule." Newton came in on the second drive after missing only one snap.
Dec 4 - 8:37 PM

Cam Newton completed 14-of-29 passes for 246 yards, two touchdowns, and interception in the Panthers' 35-32, Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

He added six rushing yards and a third touchdown. It was a tale of two halves for the Panthers, and this game as a whole. Newton went into halftime having completed 3-of-12 passes for 18 yards and a pick-six that was thrown right to Khalil Mack late in the second quarter, putting Carolina in a 24-7 hole. Then Derek Carr dislocated his pinkie finger early in the third quarter and the momentum seemed to flip, even with Carr missing just one series. Newton hooked up with Ted Ginn for an 88-yard touchdown bomb, roasting T.J. Carrie. Cam then found Kelvin Benjamin on a 44-yard touchdown later in the fourth quarter. Carolina held a 32-24 lead, and Newton was later strip-sacked to end the game. The Panthers are 4-7 ahead of a Week 13 road date at Seattle.
Nov 27 - 7:46 PM

Cam Newton completed 14-of-33 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' 23-20, Week 11 win over the Saints.

He added five rushes for seven yards. It was yet another limp performance from last year's MVP, especially after halftime. Newton's 199 total yards were his second fewest of the season. Things would have been even worse had Newton not stuck an amazing 40-yard touchdown pass to Ted Ginn in the back of the end zone as time ticked away at the end on the first half. Newton was once again let down by his offensive line and receivers — drops and the loss of C Ryan Kalil, in particular, hurt — but he isn't creating plays the way he did in 2015. He'll be a mid-range to low-end QB1 against the Raiders in Week 12.
Nov 17 - 11:49 PM

Cam Newton completed 23-of-38 passes for 261 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Panthers' 20-17, Week 10 loss to the Chiefs.

The Panthers thoroughly dominated the first half, going up 17-0 until Cairo Santos kicked a late-second quarter field goal to get the Chiefs on the board. Newton rushed for 54 yards and one touchdown, a four-yard score that got Carolina it's first end-zone visit. He later hooked up with Devin Funchess for a 38-yard touchdown over the top of the defense. The offense went in the gutter in the second half, though, as Newton managed just 104 yards after the break while also throwing a costly pick-six to Eric Berry. A late Kelvin Benjamin fumble at his own 35-yard line with 20 seconds left set Santos up for the game-winning field goal. The Panthers are now 3-7 and will host the Saints on Thursday night. Newton will look to rebound as an elite QB1.
Nov 13 - 4:17 PM

Cam Newton completed 20-of-32 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' 13-10, Week 9 win over the Rams.

Newton added seven rushes for 16 yards. It was tough sledding for Newton against a fired-up Rams defense, but thankfully, the Panthers' defense was even more fired up to be facing Case Keenum. This isn't a game Newton will remember fondly, but he avoided major mistakes. He did get walloped for five sacks, but avoided fumbles. Newton has only one total score over his past two games, and has another tough matchup on tap for Week 10 in the Chiefs.
Nov 6 - 7:30 PM

Cam Newton completed 14-of-27 passes for 212 yards and rushed seven times for 43 yards in the Panthers' Week 8 win over the Cardinals.

As the Panthers' defense dominated and Jonathan Stewart hoarded the touchdowns, Newton was a fantasy disappointment in a game he played well and avoided pressure for the most part, taking just one sack. Cam did get stuffed repeatedly on run plays deep in scoring position, which Stewart cleaned up. Newton amounted to a game manager against the Cardinals in a matchup the Panthers won easily. His production should improve in a Week 9 date with the Rams.
Oct 30 - 4:28 PM

Cam Newton said he plans to keep running despite the concussion he suffered Week 4.

"My edge is running the football inside the tackles," Newton said. "That's going to forever be my edge in this league." Newton only had two rushing attempts in his first game back against the Saints, but he did score a game-tying touchdown from two yards out. Those rushing touchdowns are what make Newton a special fantasy player, and it does not look like they are going away.

Cam Newton completed 26-of-46 passes for 312 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Panthers' 41-38, Week 6 loss to the Saints.

He rushed just one time, flying around the right end inside the pylon for a two-yard touchdown. The Panthers got off to a really slow start, falling behind quickly 21-0, but Newton played well for the final three quarters. Carolina managed to pull even at 38-38, but Saints K Wil Lutz made a 51-yard field goal with 11 seconds left to knock the Panthers down to 1-5. Carolina heads into its bye week and needs to hit the reset button fast before hosting the Cardinals.
Oct 16 - 4:45 PM

Cam Newton has been cleared for Week 6.

He passed the final stage of his concussion protocol. Newton will start and is a top-five play in a projected shootout against the Saints. The Panthers should also get Jonathan Stewart (questionable, hamstring) back this week.
Oct 15 - 5:12 PM

Cam Newton (concussion) is officially questionable for Week 6 against the Saints.

He practiced fully on Friday, which is a great sign. Newton still needs to gain final clearance from a neurologist. That will likely happen this afternoon or on Saturday, and Newton should be under center Sunday. Panthers-Saints has the highest over-under of the week.
Oct 14 - 12:56 PM

Per ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton, Cam Newton (concussion) remains "on target" to start Week 6 against the Saints.

Newton is practicing again Friday and has experienced no setbacks in his advancement through the concussion protocol. He's expected to be cleared either today or Saturday. Newton will be an elite QB1 play.
Oct 14 - 10:53 AM

Cam Newton (concussion) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

He is going to start Sunday's game against the Saints. Newton has only one multi-touchdown effort thus far this season, but will be an elite QB1 for an expected shootout at the Superdome.
Oct 13 - 2:56 PM

Cam Newton (concussion) is practicing Thursday.

The practice confirms he did not suffer a setback after returning to work Wednesday. He might still have a few hurdles to clear in the concussion protocol, but Newton is on track to play against the Saints. He will be an elite QB1 in that matchup.
