Can’t stop, won’t stop Cam Newton. The QB’s amazing ability on the field over the past few seasons has finally paid off, leading the Carolina Panthers to Super Bowl 50. We put together the five most spectacular plays of the young superstar’s career for you to admire.
Cam Newton, 26, wears the number one on his jersey cause, why not? The guy is playing like the number one quarterback in the NFL and has led his team, the Carolina Panthers, to the league’s best season record of 15-1. Their opponent, the Denver Broncos, will have an epic challenge in trying to stop Cam in Super Bowl 50, and their only hope is to slow down his explosive play-making abilities. Here are five highlights from the young quarterback’s blazing career!
1. Week 2, Sept. 20, 2015: Panthers vs. Texans
It was a tie game late in the third when Cam could not find a man open deep in the red zone. The QB took the ball and ran towards Houston Texans safety, Rahim Moore. What happened next needs to be seen to be believed. Cam FLIPPED over Rahim and into the end zone, and he even stuck the landing!
2. Week 16, Dec. 27, 2015: Panthers vs. Falcons
Cam plowed through 9 defenders, pulling guys with him, to reach a long first down. His Panthers were looking at a 3rd and 8 yards in the middle of the field. Again Cam had no one open, deciding to tuck the ball and scramble for his most impressive run of the year. At 6′ 5″ and 245lbs, Cam is a pure beast.
3. Week 14, Dec. 13, 2015: Panthers vs. Falcons
Coming off his back foot while surrounded by defenders, Cam threw a side-arm pass through an incredibly tight window. The powerful, threading the needle, four yard pass was complete for a touchdown to Ed Dickson. The play showcases Cam’s adaptability and athleticism during a season that will cement him as a premium franchise quarterback.
4. Week 1, Sept. 11, 2011: Panthers vs. Cardinals
Cam throws a 77-yard bomb to Steve Smith for his first career touchdown. Cam, the rookie, introduces himself to the world with a throw that would go down as the longest first touchdown pass in NFL history.
5. NFC Divisional Round, Jan. 17, 2016: Panthers vs. Seahawks
Cam uses his rocket-launching arm for a 86-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Corey Brown. The pass would be part of Cam’s high-powered offense that would catapult his Panthers to a 31-0 first half lead and an eventual victory.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Will Cam Newton win the MVP award this year and the Super Bowl too?
