Cam Newton just make history in Denver last night in more than one way.
His 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter now makes Cam the all-time leader for career rushing touchdowns for a quarterback – he’s already passed the legendary Steve Young with 44 all-time.
Last night’s game also marked the 32nd game in Newton’s career that he’s finished with a touchdown through the air and on the ground, surpassing another one of Steve Young’s records of 31 games.
What makes these broken records even more impressive is Cam’s age. He broke both records in his 79th career regular season game. He’s still only 27 years old playing in his sixth NFL season- the 2015 MVP shouldn’t have much trouble smashing several other quarterback records and solidifying himself as one of the greatest NFL players of all time.
