Any way you slice it, Ryan’s passing numbers are far superior to Cam’s in these matchups. However, his rushing stats are less impressive than Newton’s. He has rushed for just 71 yards and one touchdown in his career against the Panthers while playing six more games.
Meanwhile, Newton has done a lot of damage on the ground against the Falcons. He has added another 662 rushing yards and seven touchdowns while averaging 7.2 yards per carry.
