Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is so difficult to defend because he has a cannon for an arm and moves that running backs and wide receivers display in the open field.
During a lengthy third-quarter drive that ended with a go-ahead touchdown, Newton converted a key third down with one of his best runs as an NFL player. ESPN broke it down for us:[tweet https://twitter.com/ESPNStatsInfo/status/402641971216281600 align=”center”]
The highlight of the run was a quick juke from Newton that froze Patriots linebackers Dont’a Hightower and Rob Ninkovich, which allowed Newton to escape and head up field.
