Cam Newton Jukes His Way out of Trouble in the Backfield for Huge First Down

It's not fair to have a quarterback with moves like this. Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton juked his way out of multiple tackles on a 3rd-and-7 and picked up 14 yards on a scramble in the third quarter against the New England Patriots.

It may have only counted for 14 yards, but ESPN Stats & Info showed just how far Newton ran:

As broadcast just showed: Cam Newton eluded 6 defenders and covered 75.8 yards of ground on his 14-yard run a few minutes ago

Twitter exploded after seeing the play.

SportsCenter was loving it:

CAM NEWTON ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?!?!? One of the best 14-yard runs you will EVER see. #SCtop10

CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman made a great comparison:

Cam Newton looking like a 6-6, 250-pound Johnny Manziel right there and doing it against grown men. That was awesome.

ESPN Stats & Info had another good stat:

What a run by Cam Newton -- Newton entered the game with 28 1st-down scrambles on third down in his career (most in NFL since 2011)

The Panthers ended up scoring a touchdown on the drive to take a 17-10 lead.
