Carolina Panthers rout Arizona Cardinals 49-15 to win NFC Championship
Monday January 25th, 2016

Cam Newton used his legs to increase the Panthers’ lead over the Cardinals to 34–7 in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.

On third-and-10 from the Arizona 23, Newton scrambled outside and stiff-armed a tackler to fight his way past the first-down marker for an 11-yard run.

On the next play, he ran to the right sideline once again, and dove into the end zone for a 12-yard score.

The run gave Newton 33 yards on the ground on nine carries with two touchdowns.
