No. 2 – 12/13/2015 vs. Atlanta

One week later Newton would enjoy the highest rated game of his career to this point. Facing another divisional rival, the Atlanta Falcons, Newton led a 12-0 team into Bank of America Stadium as the Panthers put together one of their most complete games ever.

Winning 38-0, Newton played just three quarters after opening with touchdown drives on the first three possessions and a 28 point lead at the break. Newton finished 15 of 21 for 265 yards and three scores while connecting with 10 different receivers.

Enjoying a career high 153.3 quarterback rating, one of eight triple-digit performances in 2015, it is no wonder Newton earned league MVP honors as Carolina finished 15-1 with a third consecutive divisional title.
