Which Quarterback Has the Edge in Week 10 Matchup Between Panthers and 49ers?

The San Francisco 49ers (6-2) and Carolina Panthers (5-3) will face off this Sunday for the first time since 2010. This will be the Panthers' first foray into Candlestick Park since 2004.

With Candlestick Park going off the wayside after this season, the Panthers will try to make it 4-0 against the 49ers since 2001.

Both teams are heading into this Week 10 matchup with active winning streaks. The 49ers have pulled out five straight victories, while the Panthers will look to secure their fifth straight win.

This upcoming matchup will bring together two very balanced teams; however, the spotlight will focus on the Panthers and 49ers starting quarterbacks, Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick, respectively.

As many already know, both Newton and Kaepernick came out of the 2011 draft class. Newton was the first overall choice, while Kaepernick was selected by the 49ers with the 36th pick in the second round.

Despite the gap, there seems to be no animosity from Kaepernick. In fact, Kaepernick and Newton were former roommates and have been on record about their respect for each other’s skill set.

Friendship aside, both quarterbacks will have something to prove this Sunday. Who has the edge?

Let's explore.
