Cam Newton and Jameis Winston both had career days last Sunday. But their stat-lines were pretty interesting to look at. Both QB’s have very similar playing styles including bruising runs, and rocket arms from the pocket. On Sunday, Winston’s stat line was 246 yards, 5 TD’s and 0 INTs. Newton’s stat line was 246 yards, 5 TD’s, and 0 INTs. Each TD for both QB’s went to 5 different receivers. Both QB’s play in the NFC South, and they both demolished a team from the NFC East. (Cue Twilight Zone music)
Controversy in Denver:
After one of the worst statistical games of all time, Manning missed a rare game to get healthy and Brock Osweiler got the first start of his career. He had a solid game, granted I saw him as a game manger more than anything else. Either way, he was efficient, didn’t make any mistakes, and threw 2 TD’s in their road win. Rumors are saying that Manning wants to play in 2016 no matter what, and for any team. There are rumblings that the Denver organization is wishing that Manning will kind of fade off into the sunset so they can move on without causing too much pain (remember the flack they got when they got rid of Tebow). It could lead to an interesting offseason.
