The NFC South’s two youngest quarterbacks had dismal games Sunday, according to Total QBR.
Carolina rookie Cam Newton ranked No. 24 in the league with a 24.4 Total QBR. A score of 50 is considered average, but Newton was well below average and he wasn’t alone.
Tampa Bay’s Josh Freeman was No. 29 at 13.6. That was second to last among starting quarterbacks because the ratings don’t include the Monday night game. Only Indianapolis’ Curtis Painter (4.8) was worse than Freeman.
Newton (56.8) is No. 13 and Freeman (45.0) is No. 23.
