Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton doesn't think his ankle will affect him on Sunday

The Carolina Panthers have a great chance at winning the division on Sunday as both leaders take on the bottom two teams of the NFC South.

During their division showdown against the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday, starting quarterback Cam Newton took some time getting to his feet after taking some hits. He was seen walking slowly on and off the field, favoring his ankle but kept playing hard.

Nothing was going to keep Cam from putting the Panthers in first place of the division as he helped lead them down field for a game winning touchdown. This had to be one of the most entertaining games of the entire day.

I figured it would be a hard fought game and it even featured a little bit of what looked like a monsoon. I thought players were going to fly away or get stuck in the turf because of all the rain.

Anyways, Cam and the Panthers will take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. According to Steve Reed on Twitter, Cam Newton said that his ankle will not affect his mobility against the Falcons.

An NFC South division champion will be crowned on Sunday.
