The 2017 on-field version of Cam Newton has essentially been the antithesis of Ben Roethlisberger throughout Big Ben's career.
Newton has tallied nine of his 12 touchdowns, just two of his eight picks and a 122.9 rating away from Charlotte, where the Panthers are 3-0, compared to a 55.6 rating and 1-2 mark at home.
Roethlisberger's home-road splits are well-documented. His five-intercecption debacle at Heinz Field two Sundays ago was an outlier, but it's worth noting he's turned it over more frequently against the Bengals at home than other foes with a 17:18 touchdown-to-interception ratio but 8-5 win-loss record.
Newton last Thursday played his worst game of the season in a 28-23 home loss to the NFC-leading Eagles, and yet he still had two shots at a win in the closing minutes and salvaged his fantasy owners' night with his best rushing performance to help offset three interceptions.
Now he'll visit Chicago, where a Bears 'D' that hasn't been able to buy a takeaway the past two seasons exorcised its playmaking demons with a huge performance in Baltimore last week.
Roethlisberger returns to the scene of the Jaguars many crimes with some mojo back after helping engineer one of the season's biggest upsets over the previously undefeated Chiefs at Arrowhead. The Bengals have been extremely tough on defense but are dealing with a rash of cornerback injuries that might tip Todd Haley's plan in favor of a Big Ben game, unlike last week.
