What To Expect From Cam Newton With The Patriots In 2020

During the 2019 season with the Panthers, Newton only ended up playing in two games. He completed 56.2 percent of his pass attempts for 572 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception. Back in 2018, however, he completed 67.9 percent of his passes for 3,395 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.

Heading into the 2020 season, Newton has had plenty of time to get himself right physically. He will also play in a much better offensive system under Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels.

Here are a few numbers the Patriots should be expecting from their new quarterback.

Newton Ends Up Starting 13 Games

We’re going to run with the prediction that Jarrett Stidham ends up starting the season. He will get through three games as the starter before Newton takes over. Newton offers the Patriots a much better chance to win now, and if he’s healthy is going to be a stud.

At Least 3,300 Passing Yards, Another 300 Rushing Yards

Following his move to take over as the starter for the Patriots, Newton is going to look sharp. He will rack up at least 3,300 passing yards in 13 games and will add another 300 yards on the ground. Newton may not be the player he once was, but he can still make a major impact in the right situation.

He Records 30 Total Touchdowns

Finally, the Patriots are going to love utilizing Newton’s skill-set in the red zone. He will throw for at least 25 touchdowns on the year and his legs will get him in a few more times. When everything is said and done, he will have scored 30 total touchdowns in his 13 games with New England.
