It couldn't get much worse for Cam Newton in the first half Sunday. The Carolina Panthers star completed just 3 of 12 passes for 18 yards -- the least amount of yards he's had in one half -- and an interception.
To make matters worse for the reigning NFL MVP, the pick was returned for a touchdown. With the Panthers trailing by 10, Newton dropped back on second-and-5 and appeared to be throwing a screen to running back Fozzy Whittaker. Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack read the play, leaped up and picked off the pass, returning it for an easy pick-6.
Newton, whose QB rating was 4.9, did run in Carolina's only touchdown before the half. The Panthers, who have won three of four heading into Sunday, trail 24-7. Will Newton turn it around in the second half?
