Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says he learned a lot from Jets quarterback Tim Tebow when he was at Florida.

"There's a lot that I've learned from Tim and his professionalism," Newton said to NFL.com. "You know how his approach is to this game and that's one thing everybody has to respect about him -- and I certainly do."

Newton and Tebow will meet again on Sunday night when the Panthers and the Jets square off.  

"I feel as if every stage is big for us this year," Newton said. "We have a point to prove and we have to have that chip on our shoulder each and every game."

Newton will be without wide receiver Steve Smith on the offense and linebacker Jon Beason will be out on the defense for the Panthers.
