Last week: 29 (+0)

Record: 2-8

This team’s struggles in close games in the 4th quarter get more ridiculous every game. How did they blow that 21-10 late lead? After losing in overtime to the Buccaneers last week, Cam Newton is now 1-11 in games decided by a touchdown or less. The good news is he’s 7-7 in all other games and if he were even average in close games, this would have been a .500 team over the past few seasons. However, look at his career stats in the 4th quarter when the game is within 7 points: 65 of 123 (52.8%) for 887 yards (7.2 YPA), 4 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions.  That’s an issue.
