Seattle has held Cam Newton to one touchdown in three games since 2012. What has been the key to that?
Seahawks beat writer Terry Blount: Newton shouldn't feel too bad. The Seahawks have made a lot of very good QBs look bad the past couple of years -- Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl and Aaron Rodgers this year in the season opener, to name two. But the biggest thing is they've done what I'm sure the Panthers want to do to Russell Wilson -- cut off his running lanes and force Newton to beat them throwing. Newton had 12 carries for only 24 yards in the game at Charlotte earlier this season. Forcing any QB to beat them just by passing is a chore against the No. 1 pass defense in the NFL, which has three Pro Bowlers in Chancellor, Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas.
Newton has averaged 146 passing yards and 35 rushing yards in his last three games against Seattle. He has thrown one touchdown pass and one interception (total) in those three games. Daily fantasy players should look elsewhere for a strong quarterback play.

Divisional Round – Cam Newton vs. Seattle
Cam Newton didn’t look sharp against the Cardinals last week, throwing for only 198 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and also throwing a pick. He had 35 yards rushing on seven attempts however, including a pair of key third down pickups, but he still completed only 56 percent of his passes, which is low even for him.
This week, things will not get easier against the best defense, and the best pass defense, in the league. The Seahawks are fierce playing in Seattle and that defense is humming on all cylinders. Expect a tough day for Cam Newton and the Panther offense, and in a week where QB is so strong, we have Cam ranked dead last as a fantasy option. Look elsewhere if you can.
