WEEK 2 TOP 20 HIGHLIGHT:
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton joined the all-time Top 20 passer ratings list after his performance on Sunday. He completed 22 of his 34 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown in his team’s 24-7 victory against the Detroit Lions.

The former first overall pick was named the starter as a rookie in 2011 and has helped the franchise improve from a 2-14 record to a 12-4 record in just three seasons. He also led the Panthers to their first NFC South Division title and playoff appearance since 2008. Newton has thrown for over 3,000 yards in each of his first three seasons and has amassed a total of 11,580 yards and 65 touchdowns by completing 904 of his 1,509 passing attempts.

Newton entered the Top 20 after qualifying with the minimum of 1,500 career attempts. His career passer rating of 86.74 ranks him 16th all time.
