Eric Rowe spoke about what it was like facing this week's opposing quarterback Cam Newton twice last year. Rowe said, "The two games – every time we played him, he brings all of the energy. He brings it for both sides because he gets us pissed off and obviously that gets us going, and then obviously energy for his team. Every time we play him, it's always fun. He's one of the most competitive quarterbacks….Every time we play him, I'm always look forward to it."
Linebacker Jerome Baker also spoke about facing Newton this week. When asked about the challenges between facing a fast quarterback in Lamar Jackson and a big quarterback in Cam Newton, Baker said, "It's not really challenging for me per se. It's more the d-line. Our d-line does a great job of containing those guys, knowing the gameplan and just following the gameplan….They know how important it is to contain a guy like Lamar. They know how important it is to squeeze the pocket on a guy like Cam. I give it all to them….Lamar, he's definitely a challenge. But the one thing about Cam is he has something to prove. I think a lot of media takes away from his talent now that he's older. He still has a strong arm. He has a bright mind so he's seen it all. He has that hunger, that chip on his shoulder. I'm going to give it to Lamar but I'm definitely going to still give it to Cam."
Dolphins guard/tackle Austin Jackson was asked about the Panthers pass rush and what they do as an offensive line to generate pressure. Jackson said, "They've got two very fast dynamic guys on the edge in (Brian) Burns and (Haason) Reddick. They're very fast, very agile type of rushers. We'll definitely be practicing for that. They've also got some pretty stout guys that can also move pretty well too on the inside, too. It's really a good mix. I think the offensive line has to do a great job of just holding the pocket, especially upfront for us, with those guys being fast around the edge."
