The Washington Redskins have never defeated Cam Newton.
When the Carolina Panthers roll into FedEx Field on Sunday for a Week 6 showdown, the Redskins will be looking to beat the 2015 NFL MVP for the first time in six tries dating back to 2009. Newton has yet to throw an interception against the Redskins, and with the Redskins secondary dealing with some turmoil involving star cornerback (and former Panther) Josh Norman, Newton may skate free without tossing an INT again.
Having dynamic backfield pass-catcher Christian McCaffrey helps, too. McCaffrey, in just his second season, is averaging 103 all-purpose yards per game through Week 5. With perennial All-Pro tight end Greg Olsen returning to the lineup on Sunday, Newton will have his full arsenal of check-downs and security blankets.
That's what the Redskins have to deal with in Week 6.
