Cam Newton completed 28-of-41 passes for 331 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in Carolina's 41-38, Week 13 win over the Saints, adding 10 carries for 49 additional yards.
Facing the worst defense in the league, Newton performed like it, taking deep shots at will and completing almost all of them. Newton could have had an even bigger day, but missed Greg Olsen on a few throws, and could only watch in horror as Ted Ginn muffed sure scores of 68 and 52 yards. The five-TD performance was Newton's second in three weeks, and gives him 25 on the season. That's already a new career high, and puts him on pace for 33. That, of course, doesn't account for the nine ground scores he's on track for. Newton took a beating today, and could miss some practice time this week. Either way, he'll be a top-three play against the Falcons in Week 14.
