Cam Newton vs. Robert Griffin III—is there any better way to summarize this showdown between the Washington Redskins and the Carolina Panthers in Week 9?
The Redskins (3-5) are last place in the NFC East after a surprising start to the season that saw Griffin emerge as one of the league's most efficient quarterbacks. More surprising still, rookie running back Alfred Morris came out of no where to be one of the NFL's best runners. While the offense has cooled and injuries have held back the defense, the 'Skins are still a tough match up.
The Panthers (1-6) have not improved in Newton's second season and the fans, media and even Newton's own teammates have called for better effort and leadership from the sophomore sensation. As quarterback, first overall pick and face of the franchise, a lot of pressure will fall to Newton now that GM Marty Hurney is gone. In Week 9, Newton gets to face off against this year's hyped-up rookie QB.
