On Thursday night, Cam Newton’s struggle continued to a point the former MVP was benched for Jarrett Stidham.
Newton completed just 9 of 16 passes for 119 yards and some touchdown. Even though Bill Belichick pulled Newton in the fourth quarter of last night’s game, but lineup won’t change.
Bill Belichick tried not to talk about quarterback change in Foxborough, which he told reporters “Cam’s our quarterback”.
When he was asked about the subject again, he said “He’s our quarterback. I think i just answered that one”.
Newton was also interviewed if getting benched “That’s not my call,” Newton said. “I’m just doing what I’m asked, with the mentality of getting better, and that’s what I keep planning on doing.”
Apparently, New England’s passing game has been present all this while, so it will be considered as major change at quarterback by management. which i guess won’t happen this year.
