Cam Newton confident he can recover from dismal outing

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — In the days leading up to the Patriots' matchup with the 49ers, Cam Newton said he felt like he hadn't played up to the expectations he set for himself prior to this season.

That standard took another beating during Sunday's 33-6 loss to the 49ers.

Newton played his worst game of 2020, completing 9 of 15 passes for a season-low 98 yards and three interceptions before being replaced by Jarrett Stidham in the fourth quarter. Stidham was 6 of 10 for 64 yards and an interception.

Newton's 39.7 quarterback rating was his lowest of the season.
