Cam Newton stands center-stage with clut

What can be said with regards to a quarterback who takes the fielda soaked field, at thatwith Kenny Hilliard Jersey 55 seconds left, no timeouts, without his favorite receiver, with one po sibility to stay alive through the division title race in order to clinch a playoff berth, and marches his team 65 yards in five plays for the game-winning touchdown?And what / things be said if quarterback had pulled that off twenty eight days earlier against another playoff contender as well as ever done it to some other playoff team in one week before that? 3 x in six weeks, because of their postseason eats the series?
MORE: Week 16 images | Live scoreboard | Recap | Stats If that quarterback is Cam Newton , all to state is: He has got arrived. Think twice, playoff opponents, you officially have a many more to consider than that defense.In just his third season, Newton cannot match the job accomplishments in the Tom Bradys or Peyton Mannings. But of all the measures within their greatne s, leading game-winning drives like he did soon after Carolinas 17-13 make an impre sion on they in Charlotte Sunday sits at the summit.Nothing matters well over final results, that's how Brady is judged, and why numerous put him above Manning despite Mannings superior David Quessenberry Jersey numbers.

Newtons stats on Sunday prior to an final drive were as poor to be the playing surface: 10 for 17, 116 yards, an interception within the Saints 10-yard line in the first quarter, seven three-and-outs, plus a 13-10 hole.His numbers to the final drive: 3 for five (including one spike to forestall the time), 65 yards and also winning throw to Domenik Hixon with 23 seconds left. Meaning, he took them downfield in 32 secondsand he achieved it the same he previously had faltered badly until then, without Steve Smith cannabis 3 quarters after he injured his knee eight minutes to the game.Any quarterback that can accomplish that Kendall Lamm Jersey with this much on the line can likely stop answering queries about whether a No. 1-overall pick was wasted on him. The sophomore slump, or jinx, or regre sion of last season has long been replaced by a knack to make the plays his team must have to make, when his elite-level defense gives him the opportunities.If he still plays every so often because if he was simply playing with the BCS championship few years ago, its worth remembering that in Year 3 of his NFL career hes 11-4, is an win from the NFC South title including a first-round bye, and allows won 10 DeAndre Hopkins Jersey of his last 11 games.And, again, it is a third time since mid-November that Newton has led the Panthers on your game-winning drive for their last po se sion.At home on Monday night with the Patriots in Week 11, they went 83 yards on 13 plays over A few minutes 33 seconds, converted three third-downsonce for the huge Newton scramble and received a go-ahead touchdown pa s from Newton with 59 seconds left.The wednesday in Miami, they trailed by 13 points late with the first half, scored the games last 17 points, and drove 80 yards (actually, these were 88 yards away at Bryan Witzmann Jersey one time) and went ahead over a Newton touchdown pa s with 43 seconds left. The period, they converted two third-downs and a fourth down.The Panthers also overcame a fourth-quarter deficit in Week 10 in San francisco bay area. Thats four late-game heroics against four teams still in playoff contention as Week 16 began.His overall numbers could be great, or so-so, or woeful. His numbers as soon as the Panthers need him are growing large enough to overshadow the others.Newtons biggest numbers on Sunday were 17-13, and 11-4. The Bradys and Mannings for the NFL can respect that.
