Cam Newton Sets Rookie Record In NFL Debut

Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

Cam Newton, the No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL draft,  set a rookie record in his debut as the Carolina Panthers starting Quarterback.  The Auburn alumnus and Heisman winner completed 24 of 37 passes for 422 yards – the most for any rookie in his NFL debut. Unfortunately, it was not enough to get his team the win, and the Panthers fell 28-21 to the Arizona Cardinals.

Newton, who grew up in College Park, was not too interested in the statistical high mark, considering that he is not used to losing. “The last time I lost a game was Navarro Junior College,” said Newton, who was sacked four times. “What do you want me to say, it feels great? It is not a comfortable feeling for me.”

Next week Cam and the Panthers play their first home game of the season against the defending Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers.
