News and Analysis
Newton completed 15-of-27 passes for 149 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, while also rushing 12 times for a season-high 72 yards Sunday versus Atlanta. The third-year quarterback finishes this season with 3,379 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions to go with 585 rushing yards and six scores on the ground.

Impact: Newton took large leaps as a passer in his third professional season, earning him a Pro-Bowl selection. With new offensive coordinator Mike Shula placing added emphasis on Carolina's running game in 2013, Newton was forced to become a more efficient passer, as his stats show. Despite his seasonal totals in attempts and yards decreasing since his rookie year, Newton threw for a career-high 24 touchdowns this season, while also becoming more accurate. Additionally, the signal-caller continued to rack up fantasy points due to his dual-threat ability. Although his rushing yards and touchdowns decreased this season, Newton still led all quarterbacks in both categories and did a better job of protecting the football, evidenced by just two fumbles all year. To summarize, as Newton's volume decreased and Carolina's offense reached a better balance, he became a much more complete quarterback this season. Newton remains one of the position's elite fantasy options due to his versatility and ability to regularly find the end zone.
