Numbers on Cam Newton's big day
By Pat Yasinskas
Take a look at this post by ESPN Stats & Information on Cam Newton.
The numbers do a nice job of putting his big day in a Carolina Panthers victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in perspective.
Newton became the first quarterback to rush for three touchdowns in a game since Daunte Culpepper in 2007.
The Carolina rookie also claimed a spot in the NFL record book. Newton now has 13 rushing touchdowns this season. The previous record was 12, set by Steve Grogan in 1976.
Newton still has four games left. Finishing with 20 rushing touchdowns isn't out of the realm of possibility.
