It was interesting that interim Panthers coach Perry Fewell referred to Cam Newton as the ‘'face of our franchise'' when asked about the quarterback being nominated as the team's rep for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Interesting in the sense there has been speculation about Newton's future with the organization even though owner David Tepper clearly has stated no decision has been made, that getting Newton (he has Lisfranc surgery on Monday) to full health is the first priority.

For Christian McCaffrey to become the third player in NFL history to post 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season the Panthers likely are going to have to feed him the ball with the intent on making that happen. McCaffrey needs 274 yards receiving to reach the milestone. That would be an average of 91.33 yards per game. He is averaging 55.84. His best three-game stretch receiving is 248 yards. Saïd offensive coordinator Scott Turner, ‘'We're going to get the ball to Christian.''
