We all know Cam Newton is a dual-threat quarterback, but after Sunday’s game against the Giants, it may be time to classify the Panthers signal-caller as a triple-threat QB.
During the first quarter of Carolina’s eventual 33-31 win over New York, Newton handed the ball off to D.J. Moore to run an end-around. Moore ran behind the offense, putting Newton in front of him, setting him up to block the 6-foot-6, 272-pound Kareem Martin with ease.
Newton is listed as an inch shorter than Martin, but nearly 30 pounds lighter and Newton ran through him on a reverse like it was nothing. And if he wasn’t there to pick up the block, Carolina easily could have lost or gained no yardage on the play.
