It’s been a difficult season for Cam Newton and the New England Patriots. The former Carolina Panthers man expected to push the Boston-based franchise for a playoff spot, but that seems unlikely at this stage of the season. The six-time Super Bowl winners get ready to host Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens at the Gillette Stadium in Week 10.

Cam Newton expecting big things from Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson

Cam Newton appeared pumped ahead of Sunday’s clash against Lamar Jackson-led Baltimore Ravens. The former 2015 NFL MVP spoke highly of his counterpart who is having a rather underwhelming season.

He said, “Man, my boy Lamar got a gear not many human beings got. And just to see him take off, I mean, I’m a fan of the game and if I’m watching Baltimore, obviously, I’m watching to see what the MVP is going to do.”

“I think for a long time, and still to date, a lot of people do not respect the art of being able to run and protect yourself and to attack the defenses in many different ways.”

“I don’t even think I’m in that stratosphere but for him to be as dominant, dynamic, explosive at the quarterback position is something that just gives so much opportunity to the younger generation to be able to see what Lamar Jackson is doing and to get hope to say I can play the quarterback position too,” Newton said via NFL Network.
