    This is the kind of game that usually brings out the best in Drew Brees. His intelligence, courage and accuracy makes him an ideal quarterback in one of the biggest games of the year.

    Cam Newton is proving to be one of the most improved quarterbacks in the NFL. He has come a long way this season in proving his consistency, and that’s why the Panthers have been able to climb the ladder so rapidly this season.
