Newton: I need to get better in the second half

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

Quarterback Cam Newton says if the Panthers are going to turn things around this season he needs to play better in the second half of games.

The Panthers have held a lead at halftime of all four games this season, but are just 1-3 entering Sunday's game at Minnesota.

Newton's numbers in the second half of Carolina's three losses tell the story of a team that can't finish and struggles to adjust to halftime changes by opposing defenses. Newton has completed 20 of 40 passes for only 210 yards with only one touchdown and two interceptions, according to STATS INC.

Newton says that the stat is "viable" and "if we are going to make this next step I'm going to have to step up my game in the second half."
