National Champion.

Heisman Trophy Winner.

Pro Bowler.

Rookie of the Year.

And now…

Two-time NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Cam Newton dazzled spectators against the Philadelphia Eagles on "Monday Night Football." The embattled second-year Panthers quarterback passed for 306 yards, ran for 52 and accounted for four touchdowns – two through the air and two on the ground.  

For just a 23-year-old, Cam Newton has a pretty extensive trophy case.

Newton's hardware collection was even the subject of one of those witty ESPN "This is SportsCenter" commercials. (see video below).

Yet, at the end of the day, no matter how many awards he earns, Cam's resume will never be complete until he has a Super Bowl ring adoring his finger.

Note: Newton first won the NFC Offensive Player of the Week Award in Week 13 of 2011. In a win against the Tampa Bay Bucs, Newton passed for 208 yards, ran for 54 yards and scored four touchdowns – one through the air and three on the ground.
