Cam Newton did his best LeBron James impersonation on Sunday, and it led to a Panthers win, too.
The Panthers trailed the Dolphins 16-6 in the second half on Sunday, and that’s when Newton decided that the fun and games were over for Miami. The third-year quarterback put the offense on his back, driving them down inside the Dolphins’ five-yard line and eventually finding his way into the end zone, where he chose to honor the Heat star in Miami, no less.
Newton bulldozed his way into the end zone for the five-yard score and immediately went into full on LeBron mode(check out LeBron’s celebration here), pumping his knees up to his chest while pushing his hands down at the ground before pounding on his chest in a way only fit for the King. He then added his own special touch to the celebration, capped it off with his own patented Superman shirt-rip.
Newton led the Panthers to a game-winning touchdown score with 43 second left in the fourth quarter to pull off the epic comeback, clinching Carolina’s seventh straight win.
