Most NFL fans saw the Arizona Cardinals coming into New England and taking care of business. Now that the first half is over, the Patriots managed to keep it close down 10-7, yet Cam Newton has been incredibly underwhelming.
Newton was making bone-headed throws one after another while also being inaccurate. Arizona, on paper, should run away with this game by the end.

That’s a 13.0 QB rating.

Unless Newton’s putting pressure on the defense and running wild, 37 yards through the air isn’t close to getting it done. To say Cam is game-managing the Patriots right now would be an understatement. Maybe Bill Belichick throws Newton the keys to go down the field in the second half?
We’ll see what Super Cam does in the final 24 minutes of this one when most expect emerging star Kyler Murray to take over.
