Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had one of the worst games of his young career. He had an 8.4 quarterback rating on Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles were up 45-7, before Newton mounted a comeback with the game basically over. He threw two late touchdowns to make it 45-21 in order save his quarterback rating from being the worst in his career.
The 8.4 quarterback rating was the third worst in his career. His worst came last season against the Arizona Cardinals when he had a 5.7 quarterback rating.
In that game, the Panthers lost 22-6 in Arizona. He went 21 of 39 for 308 yards and three interceptions.
Against the Eagles last night, Newton was sacked 9 times and had four turnovers. He went 25 of 40 for 306 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions.
This was a drastic change from the last time Newton played at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia. In the Panthers 30-22 win on November 26th, 2012 on Monday Night Football, he had a 125 quarterback rating.
In that game, he went 18 of 28 for 306 yards and two touchdown passes.
