Cam Newton is having one of the most successful rookie seasons in all of NFL history. In his first two games, Newton threw for 400-plus yards each and has continued to show great potential in his throwing ability. As the season progressed, however, he became more reliant on another weapon: his talent for running the ball.
Throughout 2011, Cam has strung together runs that would outshine many starting running backs today. His capability to turn a potential sack into a first down or more has allowed Carolina to continue many drives that would normally result in punts or field goals.
The Panthers star has created many running plays this season, but there are five which excel above the rest.
