Carolina Panthers’ Cam Newton Set for Big Game Against Minnesota Vikings

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The Carolina Panthers and Fantasy Football owners alike have been waiting for quarterback Cam Newton to prove his worth this season. The good news is he will get a great opportunity to do just that on Sunday when the Panthers take on the Minnesota Vikings.

The 24-year-old has only passed for more than 300 yards in a single game once this season. The fact that he understands that his inconsistency has been an issue that has prevented the Panthers from being more successful is certainly a step in the right direction.

“For me, I feel I have to be more consistent,” Newton said, according to Panthers.com. “Whether it’s the obvious (things) or just something like carrying out my fake or just putting the ball a little bit more out in front of the receiver.

“When I go back and look at the (Cardinals) game, even though it wasn’t the best play in the world, I feel as though (offensive coordinator Mike) Shula has enough faith in me to know if the play is not there to throw it away. I didn’t, and it showed.”

The Vikings have allowed a whopping 326 yards through the air per contest, which means if Newton is ever going to shine this season his best chance will come in Week 6. Every team Minnesota has faced this year has taken advantage of the weak pass defense. If Carolina is unable to then the organization has to take a serious look at who is responsible for the lack of production.

I fully expect Newton to step up, correct his mistakes and have a great offensive game against the Vikings.

Watch Cam Newton Put His Own Interests Above The Team

Millions of things have been said about Cam Newton, but this one instance in particular fires me up as a Carolina Panthers fan. With the score 16-10 Broncos, Von Miller knocks the ball out of Newton's hands which leads to a mad scramble. Newton has the opportunity to jump on the ball in the pile, but he decides to back away to protect himself from injury. In a one-possession game in the Super Bowl, Newton should've sacrificed every limb he has to get that ball back for his team, and it's extremely unnerving to me as a fan that he didn't jump in there.

Watch Angry Grandpa Go Insane After Panthers' Loss

The Carolina Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos 24-10 in Super Bowl 50 which disappointed Panthers fans everywhere. I'm going to go out on a limb and say not many fans were as angered by the loss as this elderly man. While a lot of us have the self-control to avoid letting our anger take us this far, this grandpa didn't care and took his frustrations out on the television.
