With all due respect to the iconic cartoon character, he never rocked the jewelry, eye or neckwear that Newton incorporated into his look on Sunday.

The Best of Cam Newton’s Outfits

Newton has had a variety of looks this season. He always makes a statement and expresses himself, which it appears is his goal.

Here is a look at some of Newton’s more memorable fashion moments in 2020.

Huge Game for the Patriots

No matter what Newton wore, it doesn’t change how huge Sunday’s game is for the Patriots. At 5-6, the team really needs to win the rest of its games to have a strong chance of making the playoffs.

At the most, it could probably afford to go 4-1 the rest of the way to finish 9-7, and even then the Patriots will need tons of help from other teams.

The Chargers are 3-8, but with rookie quarterback Justin Herbert, the Bolts are dangerous. As Andrew Callahan and Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald said in a recent video spot, the Patriots cannot afford to take the Chargers lightly.

Newton must beware of Chargers elite edge defender Joey Bosa. He’s one of the NFL’s premier pass rushers, and if he can be a disruptive force in the Patriots’ backfield, it will drastically hinder what New England wants to do offensively.

Newton is battling an abdomen injury that kept him limited at practice throughout the week and questionable for the game until his active status was confirmed on Sunday.

The Patriots must keep him upright and clean if we’re to see Newton get back to his early-season form.

Newton is still playing to solidify his leverage as a potential free agent this offseason. The Patriots will have decisions to make at quarterback, and no one knows if they will offer Newton another free-agent deal. New England could also franchise tag him, or simply allow the 2015 NFL MVP to walk in free agency.

There is a belief some teams in the NFL will offer Newton a chance to be their starting quarterback in 2021, and if that’s the case, the Patriots may not want to match such an offer. That’s all fodder for a conversation in a few months. For now, Newton needs his go-go Gadget arm to do its job.
