WATCH: It took an unreal number of Falcons to take down Cam Newton

The Atlanta Falcons are fighting hard with Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in Week 16, but one thing that hasn’t been easy is getting the quarback down to the ground.

As Newton was working his way through the Atlanta defense, it took almost two-thirds of the Falcons defense to get him to the ground.

That looked like roughly seven players that it took to tackle Newton.

While Newton was running through Atlanta’s defense, Chris Wesseling of Around The NFL reported that this is now Carolina’s 28th straight game with 100-plus rushing yards.
