One week after rookie Cam Newton produced a historical NFL debut, racking up 422 passing yards against the terrible Arizona Cardinals' secondary, fans and pundits everywhere were certain he was due for a reality check against the vicious Green Bay Packers' defense.

In part, they were right, as Newton threw three interceptions with only one touchdown in the Panthers' 30-23 loss to the defending Super Bowl champions.

Still, against a defense featuring a hall-of-fame corner, a premiere pass rush and good run-stopping, Newton actually managed to top his record-setting Week 1 passing yardage total with 432. The rookie also added 53 rushing yards and 1 touchdown.

He now joins a group of just six quarterbacks to ever throw for 400+ yards in consecutive games, including Tom Brady, who joined the list today as well. The other quarterbacks on the list include Dan Marino, Phil Simms, Dan Fouts, Billy Volek and Matt Cassel. Young Newton has some pretty good company.

There are still plenty of trials awaiting Cam Newton before he fully proves himself, such as actually winning a game. However, it is safe to say that the Auburn Heisman Trophy Winner's NFL career is off to a rip-roaring start.
