It seems like a long time ago that people were doubting the wisdom of making Cam Newton the first overall pick of the draft.
Newton added another bright spot to his rookie season in the first quarter against the Buccaneers when he set a new record for passing yards by a rookie. Newton hit Brandon LaFell with a seven-yard pass to break Peyton Manning’s record of 3,739 passing yards. The drive ended with a DeAngelo Williams touchdown and Newton now has 3,747 yards on the year.
The Panthers lead the Bucs 10-0 late in the first quarter.
