Research Notes

  • Cam Newton was ineffective on passes traveling more than five yards downfield, completing 28.6 percent of his attempts, his lowest in a game in his career. Entering Week 5, Newton was averaging 12.3 yards per attempt on throws of that distance, the highest among qualified quarterbacks.

  • Russell Wilson was successful on passes inside the painted numbers, completing all 10 of his attempts for 141 yards and his only touchdown. Entering Week 5, Wilson was averaging 6.3 yards per attempt on throws inside the numbers, the second-lowest among qualified quarterbacks.

  • Cam Newton completed just 3-of-15 passes in the first half. It's the first time in his career that he completed fewer than four passes in a half.Twenty percent is also his lowest completion percentage in a half (previous low was 38.5 percent - 10-for-26 - in the second half vs the Falcons in Week 14 last season).
