A MAN AMONG BOYS: Cam Newton Plows Through Every Falcons Defender
Generally, an eight-yard run by Cam Newton is hardly extraordinary. The Panthers quarterback is the most mobile in the NFL at his position, and definitely one of the best running quarterbacks the league has ever seen.
But when that eight-yard run is this one to convert on a third and eight, it's worth talking about. Newton scrambles out of the pocket, and somehow manages to spin his way through three Falcons defenders before just plowing through the rest of their defense for the first down.
Yes Danny, he is indeed a cyborg. Or at the very least the reincarnation of some kind of Greek or Roman mythological being.
At first, the referees actually didn't give Newton the first down; probably because they couldn't get see him through the army of lineman and defensive backs that were unsuccessfully trying to thwart his majesty's third conversion. Fortunately Cam's work wasn't wasted, as Panthers head coach Ron Rivera challenged the spot and the ruling was reversed to give them the first down.
Take note, future Panthers opponents: if you want to tackle Cam then you'll need all eleven defenders. Start game planning now.
