--Carolina quarterback Cam Newton won a national championship in his final collegiate game at University of Phoenix Stadium. He'll play his first NFL game there, too, and the Cardinals will have respect for him, defensive end Darnell Dockett said.
"I'll treat him just like any other quarterback," Dockett said. "He's the first pick of the draft for a reason. He's a great player, and I don't go into the game underestimating him. One thing I know about quarterbacks. You give them enough time, no matter who's back there, they get the ball out."
