Toughest Quarterback to Face – Cam Newton

Cam Newton earns the top spot because he’s the reigning NFL MVP from a season ago and has become one of the best and most exciting players to watch in football.

Drafted number one overall in 2011, the Carolina Panthers had high hopes that Newton would become their go-to guy. He’s done just that, posting a 45-32-1 record in five seasons and punching a ticket to the playoffs in the last three seasons.

[Newton] is a threat in nearly every aspect. He can throw and he can run as well as any quarterback can in the league.

Newton led the Panthers all the way to the Super Bowl this past season, where they fell to the Broncos in a defensive crazy game.

Despite losing and “not going after the fumble”, Newton is poised to have another nice year in 2016.

For one, he is a threat in nearly every aspect. He can throw and he can run as well as any quarterback can in the league. Last season alone Newton ran for 636 yards on the ground.

The game against the Panthers will likely be one that the Chiefs lose. It’s a week 10 matchup, but it’s on the Panthers’ home turf, meaning the crowd will be wild and crazy.

It is worth noting, however, that the Kansas City Chiefs are 1-0 against Newton. They beat him in the 2012 season with Brady Quinn under center for the Chiefs. It was one of Kansas City’s two victories that season.
