Cam Newton (1) and the Carolina Panthers are 0-2 in the NFC South with losses to the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons.

Cam Newton is a winner and the Carolina Panthers (2-6) need him to renew his winning ways in order to succeed in the highly competitive NFC South.

Newton, last year's Heisman Trophy winner and this year's leading candidate for NFL Rookie of the Year, has won national championships in the last two full seasons he's played.
