Patriots QB Cam Newton Says No Panic Button Being Pushed Despite Team Being Under .500

After the Patriots slipped under .500 for the first time this deep into a season since 2002, quarterback Cam Newton expressed confidence in a turnaround, Mike Riess of ESPN Boston reports.

“There’s no need to press the panic button. There’s no need to start reinventing the wheel. We have the answers in that locker room,” Newton said Monday morning in his weekly interview on sports radio WEEI.

Newton was 17-of-25 for 157 yards with two interceptions in the loss, and noted that his timing was off, which resulted in him holding on to the ball too long at times. He was sacked four times.

“I just have to be better, and I can’t stress that enough moving forward. The anticipation was off, I think that was the biggest discrepancy in not having practice,” he said in the radio interview. “Usually in most times, you can throw it way before the receiver is looking for it, and be on the money with it. But not having practice for as long as I have had practice, it just showed.”
