Join us at Gateway tomorrow (2/7) to watch the Big Game…as newly-named MVP Cam Newton and the Panthers take on the Broncos!
The NFL Honors show has become the tradition before the Super Bowl, and on Saturday night, Cam Newton was named the NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year. It’s was expected coming into the awards that Newton would run away with both honors.
On the season, Newton progressed as a quarterback and put his name in the discussion as the best quarterback in the league. He was just as dynamic through the air as he was on the ground.
On the season, Newton threw for 3,837 yards and 35 touchdowns. He also rushed for 636 yards and had 10 touchdowns on the ground. Behind Newton at quarterback, the Panthers finished with the top-ranked offense in the league and they were just as dynamic on offense as they were on defense.
More incredibly for Newton was the fact that he lost his top receiver Kelvin Benjamin before the season and he was able to put the ball in a spot that the rest of his receivers could go get.
