Tom Brady was out played by Newton and the New England Patriots couldn’t launch and last-minute come back to find a win in Charlotte last night. Brady faced a lot of pressure from the Panthers defense.
They sacked him 2 times and he threw an interception in the game. Brady was under heavy pressure all night. He didn’t have the time needed to complete the long down field passes.
The Patriots defense couldn’t stop Newton and he ran all over them when he had to. The New England Patriots looked to be completely out played by the panthers in this game.
Belichick usually finds a way to contain the other team’s quarterbacks and he couldn’t get it done in this game. Newton was unstoppable and at times, it looked like Belichick knew it.
The Patriots are now 7-3 on the season and they face the Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos in their next game. New England still enjoys a 2 game lead in the AFC East but facing the Broncos who come in at 9-1 is not going to be an easy task.
The Patriots defense won’t face a mobile QB like they did against the Panthers, but they will be facing a guy with one of the fastest releases in the history of the NFL.
