What Newton does well: “We’ve got a lot of people coming back that just have a lot of speed. We’re a lot faster this year. I think our offense is going to be pretty well-off this year.”

What has to improve: “We have to believe we can win and go out and finish games. At the end of games, we have to start scoring in the red zone and stopping other teams in the red zone.”
