No. 3 – 12/06/2015 at New Orleans
Earlier in the 2015 season, Newton tied the franchise record for passing touchdowns with five against Washington and he replicated that feat in this historic matchup. Undefeated (11-0), Carolina entered the Superdome and a tough test against the Saints.
Down 14-0 early, the Panthers rallied in a game that would feature six-lead changes, an interception, sack and sideline concussion testing for Newton after a third-quarter hit. Getting the ball back, down four with 5:12 to play, Newton led an 11-play touchdown drive ending with a 15-yard Jerricho Cotchery reception to put Carolina on top for good.
The defense held in the final minute securing a 41-38 win and Newton’s 331 yard, five touchdown effort a place in history.
Newton – 28/41, 331 YDS, 5 TD, 122.1 RTG
