NFL Week 2 Ratings: Cam Does It


As if there were any lingering questions heading into the season, Josh McDaniels and Bill Belichick put an end to it by crafting a game plan that rested almost entirely on Cam Newton’s shoulders. On his New England debut, we saw play options, counterfeit runs, quarterback draws, and most importantly, play passes. He carried the ball 15 times, and while some of those options aren’t necessarily set up for him to keep, that’s a pretty heavy workload for a guy who hasn’t been able to play much football in the last two seasons for health. the reasons. Obviously, it will be difficult to sustain this type of offense, but for Week 1 against an overmatched Miami front, it worked perfectly. With Newton on a one-year deal and looking to reestablish himself among the quarterbacking elite, giving him more opportunities to carry the load could be mutually beneficial for everyone involved. Belichick probably knows now whether he thinks Newton is a potential long-term answer or more likely a one-year gap. If it’s the latter, having him carry the ball as often as he did against the Dolphins is understandable. At the same time, Newton has the chance to show the rest of the league that he is healthy and still capable of playing at a high level.
