Cam Newton, in an interview post-game on Sunday night, cleared the viewers’ doubts about whether this game was a comeback for the New England Patriots or not. Newton clearly said that the comeback was a long way from where they are right now.
The Patriots had been a mess since Tom Brady and the like jumped ship. Their overall performance this year has not been too impressive. It’s hard to believe that the Patriots are one of those teams to take home 6 Super Bowls in the last 20 years.
Earlier, the New England Patriots came face to face with the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9 of the NFL in 2019. The match ended with the Ravens besting the Patriots 37-20. Ravens, in 2019, made way for the Patriots to drop out of the Playoffs rather prematurely.
A year down the line, the teams faced off last Sunday night with the Patriots taking home the W. The Patriots, led by Damien Harris, steamrolled over the Lamar Jackson-led Ravens with a score of 23-17.
It was the second win of the season for the Patriots and turned out to be the best win so far.
With this win, Patriots supporters started making speculations about the team having found their groove once and for all. The supporters felt this could have been the turning point for the New England Patriots.
However, clear this, Cam Newton dismissed the statement by saying that it’s a long shot. From where they are now as a team, they still need to perform and up their game to reach their previous spot.
“Not going to necessarily say it’s a turning point. We just want to keep getting better each and every week and I think we have been showing that, finding different ways to win, establishing our dominance in the running game, and trying to stop the run as well. Those are all keys to victory for us,” said Cam Newton.
He further added, “As this season keeps going, we just want to keep transcending upwardly in a way that our team is getting better week by week.
“We have a lot of young players that have big roles for us and especially myself, learning new things in this offense and getting comfortable. All in all, we just got to keep the ball moving forward and staying focused throughout it all.”
