Panthers bench Cam Newton in Q4 vs Dolphins, but Matt Rhule says Newton will go on to start QB

Jasen Vinlove-USA Sports TODAY

Orange Newton’s back home for Carolina Panthers didn’t go as planned last week against the Washington Soccer Team, and things went from bad to worse down the road in Week 12 at Miami Dolphins. Dropping 20 points at the start of the fourth quarter, head coach Matt Rhule replaced Newton for PJ Walker. The Dolphins went on to win, 33-10.

Newton made it tough on Sunday, as he completed just 5 of 21 92-yard passes and threw two interceptions. While he throws the ball inaccurately, former NFL MVP has also been coerced all afternoon from Miami overtaking fever. Newton does not have Christian McCaffrey to rely on either, as McCaffrey flipped his ankle in the first half and was on and off the field in the third.

Newton, meanwhile, will remain the Panthers’ starting QB going forward, Rhule told reporters after the game, and appeared to only be benched against Miami because Walker had a better understanding of the team’s two-minute offense.

“I didn’t make any changes,” the coach said of the job QB began, Charlotte Observer. “We didn’t secure any valuable defender position. It didn’t seem fair to keep Cam there to keep getting beaten. That gave PJ a chance to play and at the same time Cam didn’t have much experience. experience. in that part of the game.”

Carolina’s attack still has serious problems, but perhaps the most remarkable thing in this match is the defeat of Carolina’s defense. This unit Sunday became the number 2 defender in the league, but Tagovailoa no problem moving the ball. In fact, the wide receiver of rookies Jaylen Waddle have 100 yards received before halftime.

Newton was able to inject energy into this franchise when he re-signed it a few weeks ago, when this dynamic group debuted and made it difficult. The Arizona Cardinals on the road, 34-10. That shine seems to have faded, however, and it looks like Carolina’s post-season hopes are in serious doubt.
