Patriots QB Newton fighting neck pain after huge hit

Ending a four-game losing streak was worth the pain in the neck for New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton.

Newton said on Tuesday he’s fighting neck soreness in the aftermath of Monday’s last-second win over the New York Jets.

On a play in the second quarter that resulted in a sack and roughing-the-passer penalty on Jets safety Ashtyn Davis, Newton was blasted but ultimately said the pain was self-inflicted because he held onto the ball too long. The drive led to a field goal.

“My neck is only working on a degree angle that shuts off the degrees to one side,” Newton said. “My eye muscles are getting a lot of work in today. I told Josh [McDaniels] on the sideline like, ‘Bro, that’s my fault and I deserved it.’ But, it got us 15 yards, so it’s the price you have to pay.”

Newton remained in the game and his injury wasn’t disclosed during the game. It was the first game Newton completed without committing a turnover, and he scored two rushing touchdowns in the victory.

“I took it personally these last couple of weeks knowing that OK, we’re close,” Newton said. “I understand the routine that needs to be put in place for me to put this team in a position to even have a chance. For me to be dialed in and locked in, I want people to see that in this locker room and show, ‘Man, he’s here working. You don’t have to worry about Cam.’ I want to get to that point. I need to get to that point. Not only for the comfort of my teammates, but for the comfort for me.”

Newton has a short window to prepare for the Baltimore Ravens (6-2), who visit Foxborough, Mass., Sunday night. The Patriots are 3-5.

On the season, Newton has thrown for 1,417 yards and two touchdowns but has seven interceptions. He’s added 314 rushing yards and eight scores on the ground.
