The Jets know they must limit Cam Newton on Sunday if they are going to beat the Panthers.
Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is focused on thwarting Newton, who is known to celebrate as Superman, by not letting him "put the cape on his back."
"I think just not letting him, as people say, put the cape on his back and make all those plays he normally makes," said Muhammad Wilkerson, via Rich Cimini of ESPN. "Whether it is getting out of the pocket and scrambling, or just Cam being Cam, we have to make sure we keep him in the pocket and he doesn't have explosive plays."
This season, Newton has completed 62 percent of his passes for 2,232 yards with 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. What makes him a nightmare to play against, though, is his running ability. In 2017, he's ran for 436 yards and 4 touchdowns.
The Jets host the Panthers Sunday at 1 p.m.
